Delivery + Pickup Are Essential During The COVID-19 Crisis.

by | Mar 11, 2020 | πŸ“¨ Newsletters

Thankfully, getting started is FREE right now.

With many states banning dine-in, delivery and pickup are no longer optional for restaurants and cafes.Β If you want to stay open, you MUST pivot.

(Roasters can get creative with pickup options too!)

There are some great deals going on to help you make the switch.

Delivery Deals

  • Grubhub is deferring restaurant fees (thoughΒ not waving themΒ completely)
  • UberEatsΒ is waiving fees for independent restaurants
  • DoorDashΒ is either waiving or reducing restaurant fees

Non-Platform Ecommerce

  • Shopify is offeringΒ 90 free daysΒ (vs 14 normally) of their easy-to-use ecommerce store with local pickup/delivery and gift cards enabled
  • Your POS provider may already have an ecommerce add-on (Square, Luvu, Toast Now)

Easy Pickup

  • OneDine’s parking lot order and pickup tech is now free for independent restaurants
  • FanFood is offering restaurants 60 days of their newΒ curbside pickup tech
  • TockΒ lets customers prepay and select pickup times, as if they were making a reservation for a table


If Canlis–one of Seattle’s premier fine dining establishments–canΒ pivot to morning bagels, a drive-thru cafe, and family meal pack delivery, you can figure this out too.

I believe in you! ❀️
