GoTab, Inc., is the revolutionary mobile ordering and payment platform. It has onboarded over 200 restaurants nationwide onto the platform since mid-March. They are helping restaurants and retailers stay in business and keep staff employed. In addition, restaurants have been using GoTab as a platform for goodwill. They are supporting meal donations to healthcare workers, charitable donations, and contributions to employee relief funds.
Contact-Free Technology Helps
Before the pandemic, the contact-free technology was in use at over 100 venues. As the impact on the restaurant industry set in, GoTab stepped up. They are now helping restaurants with its mobile platform that can support online orders for pick-up and delivery. They are offering GoTab with no setup cost to restaurants affected by COVID-19. Setup time is minimal and is done remotely. In the last 30 days, GoTab tripled the number of clients it supports.
GoTab is Used by Northern Virginia’s Hospitality Leaders
Jose Andres’ Think Food Group is using GoTab at its community kitchens in the Washington, DC region. Others are using GoTab for curbside pick-up and delivery options. Farmers Restaurant Group recently launched Founding Farmers Market & Grocery with GoTab. They are selling meals along with pantry items and household staples. Vienna, Virginia-based Caboose Brewing is also offering a one-stop-shop “blue glove” delivery service. They are offering locally-sourced produce, meats, cheeses, alongside its beer, both using the technology. Other national brands include Barcelona Wine Bar and Stone Brewing company.
Playing Our Part
“We’re proud to play a part in helping restaurants keep doors open and serve their communities,” said Tim McLaughlin, CEO of GoTab. “What we are passionate about is providing a solution that helps them re-hire their workforce and at a nominal cost. We take pride in helping these businesses create new efficiencies in their food and beverage supply chains. It will position them for a future that changed seemingly overnight.”
On-demand delivery services have been a stopgap for some restaurants, but at a cost. Hidden costs and fees are hard on businesses. Random drivers are no substitute for the staff who represent the values of each restaurant brand. GoTab allows for order pick-up and delivery schedules, which cuts down on mileage. Restaurants can keep their own employees working with deliveries, rather than using third-party services.
“GoTab has made it remarkably easy for us to focus on our business, our team and the needs of our community during these unprecedented times,” said Dan Simons, founder of Farmers Restaurant Group. “It is truly affordable and helps us continue to deliver on our brand promise with the staff that has been critical to our success. GoTab will continue to be a part of our business model as we come out of this pandemic and beyond.”
