As you know a Kopitiam is a coffee shop located in a residential or commercial area who are selling beverages as well as many food stalls.
A virtual Kopitiam is where you can sell all the food & beverages online by combining all stall owners' food and make them all available via a single food ordering system.
Consumers can mix and match orders from different stalls, pay for them with a single transaction, and get all the food delivered at once.
Now you can sell the best food available to your neighborhood using our virtual Kopitiam ordering system.

How it works:
Firstly, you need to identify the actual Kopitiam whereby you would like to convert it into a virtual Kopitiam. You will be in full control of the whole virtual Kopitiam operation.
