New Features

We’re pleased to announce the arrival of two new features, built just for you.

Whether you’d like to chat, have a question, or would like to remind your driver to grab that special something from your favorite restaurant, follow these simple steps to communicate directly with your driver:

Located at the top of the success page following checkout, tap the “Contact Driver” button. This will open the opportunity to send and receive sms text with your driver.

Masked Connection

The “Contact Driver” function sends a text message to your driver from a unique, anonymous local number. This anonymized number may change and will be active during the current delivery. If you’re having trouble contacting a driver, make sure your caller ID is not blocked.

Further, next time you’re craving that special request item, or any item that may not be available on GrubtoGo.com, you can soon add hand typed descriptions, for any request, directly to your shopping cart.

Save Time For Things You Love.

Get it delivered.



Magic


GrubtoGo is honored to be a part of the success and growth of our friends and partners over at Magic + Concierge. If you’re lucky enough to gain access to their service, come prepared with your preferred method of payment and a penchant for getting what you want delivered STAT.

Over the past couple years we’ve fulfilled thousands of orders ranging from picking up that perfect Hermès handbag, to more obscure requests like delivering large sums of cold hard cash to friends and vendors of individuals and business’ alike. Typical deliveries include sizable spreads from Brio Tuscan Grille, pharmacy items from CVS and diamond studded bracelets from Tiffany & Co. Next time you need that Ninkasi Tricerahops Double IPA and don’t know where to find it, get out that phone and text Magic +.

Get in on the Magic by visiting https://getmagicnow.com/.



Extended Delivery Hours


We’re excited to introduce new business hours that will extend delivery service from 10:00am – 10:00pm, 7 days a week.

This is not fake news folks!

Save time for things you love. Get it Delivered!



Raining Google

Today we’re pleased to learn that the team at Google voted GrubtoGo as one of a limited number of recipients to participate in their Ad Words Advantage Program. Their generous campaign will launch mid-August, amplifying our message to a massive audience during the upcoming quarter.

We’re also super excited to send a few team members to the Mountain View Googleplex to meet and greet fellow Googlers at the Google Performance Summit next year. Thanks Google!



Order Tracking

Order Tracker TREATS

When hunger pains, you need accurate, up-to-the-minute information about your order. We’re excited to share new improvements that will allow you to track your delivery in real time.

Following checkout, the success page will soon be topped with detailed information about your order progress in real-time, so you always know what’s going on. Keep an eye on the page to see when a driver accepts your order, when the restaurant has started preparing your meal, when the driver is departing the restaurant & when your order is complete.

We think this information is soo cool, you’ll also be able to access it by logging into your account dashboard. We’ve even included a link to access the order progress directly in the confirmation email sent at checkout.



Drivers on Demand

We could not be more pleased to announce the arrival of a new way to engage drivers. Drivers on Demand is a new app and api that will be made available to our network of participating restaurants, opening access to our growing team of drivers with the tap of a button.

Drivers on Demand Mobile App

After countless iterations, we’re happy to offer a functional and simple user interface that allows restaurants to request drivers with real time ETA, schedule drivers for future pickup, manage active orders and access order history. We will be releasing the app pre-loaded on portable devices at no cost to our network of participating restaurants.

Drivers On Demand

En garde!

Nothing is quite as satisfying as building exactly what you need until you find ways to leverage the great work of those who’ve built solutions for you. We’re fortunate to align interests with great talent and technology from teams at PEX, Taskus & Shiftboard this year. These synergies are integrated by contributions from of our longstanding partners in technology at Sigmasolve, who continue to refine our quality of service while we welcome a growing demand.

Drivers On Demand

In addition to numerous operational improvements that allow us to expand our reach to new cities, we’ve plenty of front end improvements that will surface with 2017, the most notable of which is a new way to engage our drivers.

Here’s the scoop:

Imagine an inquiry that requires our support team to explore the ingredients that constitute Baingan Bharta with a customer to reduce the chance of contact with some food allergen. The very next call received by our support team may implore that we share the type of wood used to grill Walu Escolar at a completely dissimilar restaurant before a customer feels confident and places their order. Just how much Escolar will it take before you’re uncomfortably squirming away from your dinner, you ask?

These scenarios may be a little over the top, however, similar demands are common. The people sufficiently prepared to address such concerns are restaurant staff, who maintain a strong connection to cooking methodology and recipes used in the restaurants.

Thus, we are interested in shifting the way we accept orders from direct contact with the consumer, to a service model that powers delivery for restaurants. Enter, Drivers on Demand.

Drivers on Demand is an API for connectivity and a freestanding application available at no cost to our restaurant partners that connects to our driver application and facilitates the scheduled arrival of drivers.

What does this mean for the consumer?

Instead of placing an order with GrubtoGo, consumers will start to place their order for delivery directly with the restaurant…who will beckon a driver for service. The result, more knowledgeable service delivered in less time.

The cat’s out of the bag folks.

Save time for things you love; Get it delivered!



New Restaurants

We’re excited to welcome the new year with two new restaurants available for delivery:

Jo Jos Grill-A-Dog

Outback Steakhouse

 

We’ve got some great projects underway this year and look forward to sharing more soon! G’day mate!



Cap on Gratuity

In an effort to make a more equitable transaction for people ordering large and small, we have added a cap on gratuity that is set to not exceed $10.00. Gratuity amounts to 15% of the order total or $10.00, whichever is less.

As always, 100% of gratuity is paid directly to drivers and for those of you with an interest in tipping in excess of $10.00, you’re welcome to carry on as you wish.

We hope these changes accommodate your interests and increase your satisfaction.



New Restaurants

With more than 20,000 locations in 60 countries where people wait in long lines to pay the equivalent of five USD for a cup of coffee, few places evoke such a thin distinction between love and hate. Where else can you get a venti double ristretto chocolate brownie frapuccino just the way you like it? You guessed it, and now you can skip the line; get it delivered.

Starbucks

After many requests, we’ve also added two new popular destinations available for delivery:

Claim Jumper

Mimis

Bon Appétit!



Magic +

Magic+

GrubtoGo is pleased to announce partnership with San Franscisco based Magic + Concierge. If you’re lucky enough to gain access to their service, come prepared with your preferred method of payment and a penchant for getting what you want delivered STAT.

Over the past few months we’ve fulfilled orders ranging from dozens of freshly baked crispy cream donuts, to more obscure requests like Halo Top brand low-calorie, low sugar & high-protein Birthday Cake ice cream. Typical deliveries include sizable spreads from YardHouse restaurants and dessert banquets from Cheesecake factory. So, next time you need that Ninkasi Tricerahops Double IPA and don’t know where to find it, get out that phone and text Magic +.

New Pricing

TREATS New Pricing

 

Today we’re excited to announce delivery starting at $3.99.

This comes as part of a new pricing model that creates a more equitable transaction for everyone involved. Here’s what you can expect:

First, we’ve introduced dynamic pricing. This great feature affords us the opportunity to provide delivery within 4 miles of any restaurant for only $3.99**. Users can continue to enjoy delivery from restaurants that are farther than 4 miles from their location; each additional mile adds $1.00 to the cost of delivery.

Since launching a beta of dynamic pricing in May, we’ve experienced a tremendous positive response in terms of order volume. 100% of applicable mileage is paid directly to drivers.

**Distance is calculated one-way using google maps api that accounts for the shortest drive-able distance between the restaurant and delivery address. Actual mileage may vary at the discretion of your driver and will not affect delivery rates.

The second notable shift in our pricing model is a cap on gratuity that is set to not exceed $10.00. This shift does not affect the majority of orders that come through the system where 15% Gratuity will apply. This shift is primarily tailored to our business users and those interested in placing orders that exceed $65.00 – $70.00 ($66.67). 100% of applicable gratuity is paid directly to driver.

For those gracious enough to tip in excess of $10.00, carry on as you wish.

We hope these changes accommodate your interests and increase satisfaction for everyone involved. More to come!

April 2015 – GrubtoGo today announces that the company has signed a non-exclusive license agreement with a company located in Waco, TX, and surrounding areas.

This effort is the culmination of an ongoing collaborative process between the two companies that began early in 2015. We’re excited by the safeguards this project will deliver our community and efficiency it will afford our operation overall.

For everyone, this is a win win situation, the benefits of which will surface with the heat of Summer 2015.

New Restaurant

Darden_TREATS

Ten years prior to 1948, when Truman issued an Executive Order to desegregate the armed services, Bill Darden (Age 19) opened his first restaurant to everyone in Waycross, Ga. This courageous move came during a time when racial segregation and discrimination across the South denied African Americans their constitutional rights, including access to all public facilities, including restaurants.

State-sponsored school segregation was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, 16 years following the first Darden restaurant; the remaining Jim Crow laws were overruled in 1964-65, a full 26 years later.

GrubtoGo is pleased to be working with Olive Garden and Darden Restaurants.

Check out their menus:

Bowling for Burns

Bowling for Burns

GrubtoGo recently had the opportunity to participate in a little fundraising/bowling thing and while that was happening we spent much of our time near a bar we choose to share with you here. The image above is a little blurry cause said bar was dispersing free pitchers of beer that we took full advantage of.

The team of firefighters that preserve the Redlands area took it upon themselves to rip down an old workplace bench to handcraft this fine and functional piece. The emblem baring at the face was laser cut from solid steel.

Burn traumas often involve painful and intrusive medical procedures that may or may not restore an individual to their formative condition. Grief is often associated with the physical changes that happen as a result of burns and as you can imagine or perhaps know, psychological insults derived from ones experience can have radical effects on survivors lives.

Bowling for Burns is a fundraising effort that benefits the rehabilitation of burn victims. Donations fund a multitude of projects that are geared towards helping traumatized individuals regain their life force. If you’re interested in learning how you can help, contact Jeanne Terwilliger via email at jterwilliger@fireandburn.org or by phone at 909-580-6339.

Until next time…
