Restaurants are designed to cook great food — not operate delivery networks. “They are not meant to be logistics companies,” EatStreet CEO and Co-Founder Matt Howard told PYMNTS in an interview.
As a result, EatStreet doesn’t just provide an app and online services to enable restaurants to offer takeout and food delivery: It’s starting to offer drivers to its restaurant clients as well. And these aren’t independent contractors that are all-too-common in the gig economy: They’re W-2 employees.
…Beyond delivery, the EatStreet platform encompasses ordering through multiple channels — from online ordering to social media integration. These channels work to give restaurants more customers and orders.
