SINGAPORE - A delicious and healthy lunch is now just a phone call away.
Office workers are starting to eat more healthily and eateries have started to take notice. Not only are more eateries serving healthy dishes springing up, but many have also gone a step further by offering deliveries.
A MyPaper check with several of these businesses found that deliveries to offices in the Central Business District (CBD) have gone up as much as 70 per cent in the past month.
They charge between $10 and $14 for a meal, including delivery charges.
The Naked Meals, a store nestled in Tiong Bahru, saw a 70 per cent increase in deliveries since its opening last month.
Today, the outlet's owners, sisters Alicia Yen, 25, and Alison, 26, deliver healthy meals - including baked salmon and meatballs - to the desks of over 40 customers in the CBD.
Over at Munch, which has four of its seven outlets in the CBD, the delivery business has been booming. Since it opened in 2010, deliveries for its signature salads and rotisserie meats have risen from 30 a month to 50.
Some chains, including the salad chain The Salad Stop, are also starting to receive more requests to stock up the pantries of offices with bowls of their green salads, nut mixes and sandwiches. The Salad Stop now makes these daily top-ups at five companies in the CBD, up from just one company in 2010.
