A start-up courier service has forged a valuable partnership with an online takeaway platform to provide small restaurants with delivery services, in a win for both businesses as well as the customers they service.
Zoom2u, an on-demand courier service that has been operating across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane for 12 months, formed the partnership with Menulog, allowing both businesses to significantly grow their businesses by offering delivery services to restaurants that currently have none.
In turn, the restaurants they service will be able to grow their own revenues by increasing the distribution of their meals.
“After only a few months, we started seeing a growing number of restaurants coming to us to ask if we could deliver takeaway food,” said Zoom2u CEO Steve Orenstein.
“Using the new integrated delivery service, Menulog customers will know exactly where their takeaway is and when it will arrive.”
The service will operate by charging restaurants a delivery fee, which they may in turn opt to pass on to their customers.
“We’re always looking for ways to improve the experience of our platform, so we’re pleased to be able to provide further delivery options to our customers,” said Brian Hickey, director of advanced markets at Menulog’s parent company Just Eat plc.
“The partnership with Zoom2u will enable more restaurants to benefit from the additional revenue stream that a delivery service can provide.”
Since its launch, Zoom2u has seen its delivery service grow by over 1,000 new customers each month. The service operates online and via iPhone and Android apps, enabling users to track courier services in real time.
Menulog currently has over 5,500 restaurants nationally on its database.
