LocalFood2Go was created in 2020 after talking with several local
independent restaurant owners. At the time, we were providing
online ordering and marketing services for about half a dozen
During these conversations, restaurant owners began sharing the various challenges they were facing during the pandemic and how it was affecting their business. By and large, many turned to the big delivery companies to keep their business afloat during their pandemic. These companies provided a convenient online ordering platform during the shutdowns.
These companies were causing frustration.
They often charged high commissions which were, in turn, passed on to customers. Their delivery drivers were often unreliable. Customer service issues were not handled locally but using phone banks that were located outside of our area. By using them they realized that they were allowing random delivery drivers to leave with not only their food, but their reputation.
Many restaurants began asking us if there were alternative solutions to the big delivery companies. We did some research and found there were very few viable options. So we created a simple way to help our local restaurant owners break free of their reliance on delivery. After carefully studying the marketplace we returned to the restaurants and proposed the idea of a “Community Based Restaurant Network” which would support both local businesses by providing them an easy to use online platform at no cost. We would also provide them with a free online ordering menu that could be embedded directly on their website (if they had one) or we would build one for them. Again, at no cost. We would help them get more orders from Facebook, Google, and other social media platforms. Every single one said they would be willing to join the network.
Today, many more restaurants are joining together to take back control of not only their online ordering and delivery business but also to expand their digital footprint. They realize that by joining our network they will have the opportunity to regain control of their online presence and grow their business.
Being part of the LocalFood2Go Network provides maximum value for local independent restaurants at a minimum cost to you and reducing the fees paid by their customers. Working together, we strategically grow your digital footprint.and help you take more orders from your own website, Facebook page, Google and other platforms.
Localfood2Go is not a traditional delivery service. However, we do help restaurants that would like to take control of their delivery. One of our goals is to help restaurants reclaim this vital part of their business by providing them with a dedicated or shared food runner at no cost to them. We do all of the necessary background checks, insure the runner while they are transporting the food, and provide the runners with cutting edge driver software. You are always in control of who is delivering your food. We provide all of this without charging high commissions which cause menu markups for your customers
We promote network members through our social media, the LocalFood2Go online directory, SMS and Text marketing and other platforms that reach thousands of people locally. All at no cost to the restaurant. We typically see 2 to 3 Times more orders coming in when a location is set up properly and promotes their OWN online ordering platform.
