HungryGoWhere announces closure after 15 years
The food and beverage portal’s last day of service is on Jul 11.
After 15 years in operation, HungryGoWhere announced that it will cease operations on Jul 11.
The announcement was made on Tuesday (Jun 8) across HungryGoWhere’s social media platforms and website. The decision comes after increasing challenges faced from “competitive pressure in the industry” that was made worse due to COVID-19.
Established in 2006, the Singtel-owned portal is a popular food and beverage site offering food reviews, dining deals and restaurant reservations in Singapore.
In regards to its closure, HungryGoWhere will continue accepting reservations until Jul 11. Users are still allowed to change their existing reservations via the portal until then.
Reservations made before Jul 12 will also remain valid. However, users are advised to call the restaurants to re-confirm their booking should their reservation date fall on Jul 12 or later.
The HungryRewards programme, where users can earn cash credits when making a reservation via the portal, will be discontinued from Jun 30.
Users are advised to transfer their remaining “Hungry$” into Singtel Dash credits by Jun 30. Any Hungry$ not transferred by Jun 30 will be voided.
In its statement, HungryGoWhere also expressed their appreciation to all users throughout the years. To thank merchants for their support, HungryGoWhere also announced that they will not be charging any merchant fees for June and July.
All content on the portal will be taken offline at the end of the day on Jul 11. Users and merchants are encouraged to save any content or reservation information they would like to retain before the closure.
