Over the past few months, many countries around the globe have had to restrict the functioning of restaurants and other small businesses which are the backbone of the economy. The restaurants are being asked to change their mainstream business. According to the National Restaurant Association, the coronavirus epidemic is the greatest crisis the industry has ever faced. Economic forecasts indicate that restaurants and the foodservice industry could sustain $225 billion in losses and eliminate 5–7 million jobs over the next three months. This means the livelihoods of the 15.6 million people in the global economy has been affected and as their cash inflows are shut, they are finding every way possible to continue to serve their customers, primarily by remaining open only for delivery and pick-up. Now, more than ever, they need all of our support.
We at kimbosabe launched #Thinkbeyond, a campaign aimed to educate the consumers and help the restaurants get online and do their own delivery which is safe and the restaurants would be able to earn more and along with that, as well avoid the over-burdening commission on every order they process.
With the hyper-local search engine, as a vendor, you can upload your menu and get online with all of your deliveries orchestrated by kimbosabe systems.
Our systems have been engineered to provide the customer with a rich experience with consistent pricing, while we provide a next-generation platform for vendors at a fraction of the cost compared to the delivery apps. Moreover, providing a consistent per order earning for every processed and delivered order.
#Thinkbeyond — a campaign that includes your local restaurants which are signed up with our platform to do their own delivery to their customers which helps them to generate an additional revenue compared to the third-party delivery apps which not only charge a 30–35% commission but also inadvertently force them to increase their prices on their menu which leads to direct price gauging.
This affects the consumers as they have to pay more compared to directly picking it up from the restaurant or from the restaurant website.
It is crucial to understand the role that our local restaurants play in our lives and communities and there is a better way to help them sustain and be resilient to survive for the future.
