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.



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.



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 +.

For those of you who want to get in on the Magic, you can learn more by visiting https://getmagicnow.com/.



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!

Do yourself a favor; get Restored & get it delivered. You’ll be glad you did!



Insuring a Future Together

Lexington Insurance
GrubtoGo is pleased to work with Lexington Insurance Company | Boston to provide a Commercial Auto Liability Insurance Policy that will cover up to $500,000.00 in bodily injury and/or property damage sustained to third parties while drivers deliver your next meal.

Similar to the insurance policies of popular ridesharing platforms, coverage begins when drivers accept an assignment and are en route to pick up an order or during transit of the order from the restaurant to its final destination.

GrubtoGo will soon be introducing a new way to interact with the service. From the home page, enter your delivery address and the site will provide a complete list of restaurants that deliver to your area.

Look for these improvements to surface early 2016.



Advance Orders

One of the great new features GrubtoGo will be offering early 2016 is an advanced order feature. As the name implies, advance orders allow a user to place an order for a designated time in the future.

By default, the advance order feature will allow users to order food to be delivered “ASAP”. Depending on the time the user is accessing the site, as soon as possible will often imply an order will arrive within 40 minutes from the time the order is placed.

Advanced Order ASAP

By using the drop down menu located at the center top portion of the screen, users will be able to select future times to schedule a delivery in one hour increments (See screenshot below).

Advanced Order Future Delivery

This feature works in conjunction with our menu schedules to offer menus and menu sections when they are available for delivery. Orders placed from restaurants that may be closed will be a thing of the past!!!

Look for these improvements to surface as they become available.

End User License Agreement (EULA)

Baylor University Delivery

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.

The agreement combines resources to fuel growth of our administrative technology at a pace that would challenge each company individually. Stipulations of the license allow both companies access to functionality of the delivery platform and incorporate the services of our preferred Floridian IT provider, Sigma Solve Inc.

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 Restaurants

Welcome 2015!!!! We’re happy to announce a great start to a new year with two new restaurants available for delivery. The much appreciated Italian restaurant:

End User License Agreement (EULA)

Good Guys Mock Logo TREATS

Nov. 2014 – GrubtoGo today announces that the company has signed a non-exclusive licensing agreement with an organization based outside of Baltimore, MD, providing similar services to businesses on the East Coast.

The agreement allows the company to employ administrative technology developed and utilized by GrubtoGo.

Under the licensing agreement, the company receives a complete technology transfer of the GrubtoGo delivery process to enable them to effectively scale their operation. The licensee sets their own price for the service they provide, paying a royalty on sales to GrubtoGo to support ongoing development of the technology.

This effort is the culmination of an ongoing collaborative process between the two companies that began early in 2014. We’re excited by the prospect of this play and are happy to incorporate the services of our preferred Florida based IT company SigmaSolve, LLC.



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:

GrubtoGo TREATS

GrubtoGo is happy to partner with a benevolent and useful website that helps friends experiencing challenging and exciting times due to birth, surgery, illness, etc. connect with people who want to help. mealTrain.com is a free solution that simplifies the organization of giving and receiving meals. By allowing the giving party to take into account the recipient’s preferred meal times & food preferences, the site helps ensure that the recipient in need get the meal they enjoy on the day that is most helpful.

Our first two interactions in partnership with mealTrain.com have opened the door to situations we all want to be part of. We were able to deliver to a family tending to a critically ill member and another family that recently had a baby.

So, we are happy to be a part of that.

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…
