cutQ to Beat the Lunch Rush Forever

Never have to queue in line for food again? cutQ brings food to the next level.


Grabbing a cup of coffee or a hot meal can cost you not just money, but also time spent on waiting in line. What else can you do to beat the breakfast/lunch/dinner rush besides being a kiasu early-bird "queuer?"

Enter cutQ: a time-saving Order Ahead app so you can get your food fast and fresh.

Never queue for food again

cutQ allows you to pre-order the F&B you crave, pay and pick up your order at the store when it's ready, all without the hassle of queueing. 

The vision behind the app was to help people save time from queuing and use the time to do better things instead, like sleeping in another 5 minutes, sending out more emails or simply spending time with family.

Service as key to happiness and growth

Hearing feedback from customers on how much they love the app and how much time it has saved them everyday is the most rewarding moment of the team's work. 

The team has also enjoyed recognition for their efforts through media coverage, awards and receiving their Angel round of funding in April 2017 with wonderful investors.

Building towards a common vision one step at a time

Moving forward in their journey together, the team behind cutQ are always on the lookout for new products, services and what they can grow their business to be. They have laid out their vision and campaigns for the year to build and adapt towards one step at a time.

On top of their shared ambition, another factor that gives the team the momentum to succeed is their diverse backgrounds. 

Founder Kevin Tan and CFO Jansen Quek were formerly auditors at PWC, one of the Big Four auditors. They work alongside Laura Tan, who did marketing at Estee Lauder Companies, and Daren Tan, who managed projects for Wong Sam Ngian Engineering.

This interesting and varied mix of experiences allow cutQ's team members to constantly learn from each other on how to develop themselves.

Passion, drive and synergy as ingredients for success

Three ingredients are vital to cutQ's success-passion, the drive to do something great and disrupt habits, and the synergy of the team.

Those without a background in F&B can still find a place in their company. The team has had interns and colleagues with no prior experience learning on the job and contributing to cutQ. Above all, what they're looking for is a willingness to learn and the drive to succeed.
