Restaurateurs in Greeley, Fort Collins and Loveland announced earlier this week in a news release they have launched NoCo NOSH, a locally operated food delivery service.
NoCo NOSH was created in January with a focus on local independent restaurants, according to the news release.
Jon Sewell of Iowa City, founder of CHOMP Delivery, helped the local restaurant owners launch the venture, which is similar to Sewell’s own service.
According to the news release, CHOMP Delivery was created in response to online and mobile food-ordering company Grubhub purchasing its top competitor, OrderUp!, in Iowa City and proposing doubling the commission rates it charged to restaurants in the area.
More than 50 restaurants in northern Colorado have become co-owners of NoCo NOSH. Additionally, any restaurant can be on the NoCo NOSH platform.
NoCo NOSH began offering delivery services in mid-April with a “soft opening,” according to the release. More than 20 restaurants are active with another 50 on their way.
The restaurants currently accepting orders are all in Fort Collins, but NoCo NOSH plans to begin adding Greeley restaurants — like Luna’s Tacos & Tequila, Greeley Chophouse, Pellegrini Ristorante Italiano-Bar, Alberto’s, Kenny’s Steak House, Cattlemen’s, The Tavern, Roma and Wing Shack — in about the next month.
The service’s website is noconosh.com.
