Delivery Drives Barbecue Brand's Record Catering Sales
Third-party deliver service DeliverThat helped Ohio-based fast casual chain Old Carolina Barbecue Company achieve its most profitable holiday catering in its 13-year history.
Corporate catering revenue in the final two months of 2018 was up 18% over the previous season while delivery expenses were down substantially.
“DeliverThat was instrumental in the success of our holiday catering this year,” said Brian Bailey, co-founder of Old Carolina Barbecue Company. “We were able to book more orders knowing DeliverThat’s professional network of drivers would not only be available to deliver the food, but they would set-up the buffet just as our own staff would.”
DeliverThat recently welcomed restaurant partners in Charlotte, Dallas, and Louisville to its growing national footprint. Independent delivery contractors are now active in 20 markets.
Old Carolina is in 10 markets including Ohio: Akron, Alliance, Canton, Massillon, Ontario, Orrville, Rocky River, Stow, Strongsville and Pennsylvania: Altoona.
