In July 1988, UTES and the Management of Singapore Telecom jointly set up a Canteen Welfare Fund (CWF). The purpose of the CWF was for UTES and Management to jointly manage the CWF where the surplus generated from the CWF were used to fund membership benefits and activities of UTES.
Towards this end, in November 1988, the CWF opened a drinks-cum-snacks stall at Comcentre Cafeteria. Another such stall was opened at Orchard Exchange Canteen in November 1989. By the end of 1991, the CWF was operationally stable. Management then decided to hand over the business of CWF completely to UTES.In view of the Management's decision, UTES decided to form a multi-purpose Co-operative to take over and operate the drinks-cum-snacks stalls.
