LIFE sometimes gets in the way of things that even simple tasks like running to the grocery store or even going out for a meal is impossible to do. Then imagine having to drive yourself to the grocery store given the massive traffic in Cebu, wasting fuel and time instead of doing something productive. Crazy right? Hearing out the busy bees in Cebu, an exciting app designed for convenience saves the day.
Asia’s leading online grocery concierge service, Honestbee, finally found its way to Cebu, bringing with it the convenience and ease busy bees like us seek right in front of our doorstep.
