How it works
Customers can sign up and receive texts directly from local restaurants that are near their homes. Restaurants can use this to promote exclusive delivery and takeout offers. The best part is that the product is entirely free for both the consumers and the restaurants!
The goal for this product is to direct consumers to the restaurant’s website rather than a third-party delivery app. From there, customers can order takeout or delivery, or whatever the restaurant is offering at that time.
Third-party apps like GrubHub and Uber Eats generally charge up to 30% of each sale in commissions. Not only are these fees hurting the restaurants, but they are also hurting the consumers.
