Opportunity for Restaurants
Dear BIA members,
Bruce Miller of The WORKS Gourmet Burger Bistro would like to share an opportunity with you....
Fellow Downtown Oakville Restaurateurs,
It is coming up 5 years for us at The WORKS Gourmet Burger Bistro here in downtown Oakville and it definitely has had its ups and downs but for the most part it has been a positive experience. However we are always looking for ways to improve our business and we have done some testing in a few markets, including Ottawa, K-W, Guelph and Kingston with Delivery and it has been a great incremental addition to our business.
The reality is that until I did delivery I never had a single dollar of revenue from the "eat at home with delivery" occasion - it is a huge market in Canada. So we are going to add Delivery to our Downtown Oakville location and the company that I have worked with has said that they are willing to offer any of the restaurants in Downtown Oakville the same "Chain" rate structure that they offer to The WORKS even if your location is a single restaurant - so I thought that I would pass on that opportunity to all of you.
We have worked with two different Delivery companies and the strongest of the two by far is a company called Skip the Dishes. They are Canadian owned and operated, they own their own drivers, the guest experience online is great as they are able to view in real time where exactly their order is and track its progress. Now don't get me wrong - delivery is not all smooth sailing - there are the operational hurdles that you need to get used to of working with a delivery company, but for us the upside has been worth it.
I have attached their "sell package" that has all the information about them, as well as their contact information if you are interested please contact Jeff Adamson directly (email@example.com
). However if you have any specific questions about our experience with delivery feel free to reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I would be happy to chat one on one.
If I don't get a chance to speak to you then I wish you great fall and holiday sales!
