The company, in a statement, said the first phase of 'Nak Makan' would involve Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor

''The vendors can operate from their own premises and their 'Nak Makan' delivery partner, namely, MrSpeedy, would make the collections and deliveries to the customers,'' said the statement.
