Dingdong’s delivery service that plans to hire displaced showbiz workers begins training riders
Dingdong Dantes’s latest venture, a delivery service called DingDong PH, has begun training its riders.
The training took place yesterday, July 6, with the actor giving a peek into the event on his Instagram Stories, as reported by Inquirer Bandera.
Dantes’ business could be seen taking safety precautions in the gathering, as the training venue had signs on how riders could sanitize themselves.
The actor discussed the idea behind DingDong PH in June during a live chat organized by law firm Gorriceta Africa Caution & Saavedra.
He revealed that he got the idea after wife Marian Rivera faced trouble in delivering flowers for her business, and he ended up making a delivery himself.
He also thought to benefit colleagues who have been affected as productions are on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“[The] inspiration also behind this is the fact that I have several workmates who lost their jobs in the entertainment industry,” he said.
There has yet to be an announcement on when the service will officially launch. /ra
