All across America, restaurants are adding delivery to their businesses to stay a float during the pandemic crippling our country. In more and more states, restaurants that had their dining rooms open are being forced to shutter once again. Although this is not a second wave, it feels like the possibility of financially surviving the pandemic is appearing more and more difficult. Food delivery is the only way to make a profit for many businesses, but that’s not breaking news anymore. What is concerning, is how many third party delivery platforms are taking advantage of businesses in their most vulnerable time.
Delivery and pickup offer ways for your restaurant to keep making money, but that whole process feels pointless when the delivery company is taking a huge chunk out of your paycheck. You’ve probably heard of and looked at companies like GrubHub, Postmates, and UberEats; you’ve also likely heard the cries of restaurant owners across the country not being able to make ends meet with these companies. GrubHub, Postmates, and UberEats charge a commission of 20-30% for each delivery order. This charge doesn't add to your order; it takes away from it. That doesn't include the delivery service charge to the customer and promotion fees, which are added on, and other “merchant and processing fees”.
They take, and they take, and even if you are making sales, very little of it is going back in your pockets.
If you’ve been looking for a delivery company to service your restaurant, you’ve likely heard all of this before. It’s hard to decide to implement delivery when the services seem to be scamming your business. That’s why hungr was started. hungr is a fair, supportive, and versatile food delivery service that started in 2012 and is based in San Diego, California. We at hungr believe in providing the best, most affordable service for restaurants of all sizes. There are no hoops to jump through, no complicated taxes or fees. We are simply for our partners and our drivers, to make delivery as safe and accessible as possible.
What makes hungr different?
Everything we do is for the benefit of our restaurant partners and drivers. hungr provides our partners with the choice between a Point of Sales (POS) system or a Tablet delivery setup, depending on what your restaurant needs.
Customers can order from the hungr mobile app, website, and hungr@work for workplace catering; all of these options provide contactless delivery, pickup, curbside, and even dine-in ordering ahead of time, when your dining rooms are open. Customers can order through Google, as well, increasing your exposure on the internet, and our national team of ServeSafe trained drivers can deliver further, expanding the community you deliver to.
At hungr, our goal is to get everyone in the restaurant industry through this crisis, instead of taking advantage of it. We know you need delivery, and we know you need every penny you can get. We will always provide the most affordable, appropriate services for your needs. Becoming a hungr partner means keeping your money where it should be; in your pockets and your community.
