Later this year, Grubhub will begin offering a corporate pay card to increase order flexibility for in-office and at-home employees. The new Grubhub Pay Card will allow employees working for companies that have a Grubhub Corporate Account to order on and off the Grubhub Marketplace with their allocated line of credit.
75% of consumers prefer to order delivery direct from the restaurant, according to HT's 2021 Customer Engagement Technology Study.
With a Grubhub Corporate Account, employers are able to give employees a line of credit to be used to order meals. Employers can set a framework for when employees can use the credit to order. Some may set time or location guidelines for when employees can use the credit, while others give employees a daily or weekly credit they can use wherever they're working, whether in the office or at home.
Hungry for Flexibility
With more employees working in a hybrid fashion ordering flexibility has become critical. The Grubhub Pay Card will provide employees with more options when ordering meals since they aren't restricted to ordering only to the office or from restaurants on the Grubhub Marketplace.
The pay card builds on Grubhub's existing Corporate Accounts offering where employers can allocate a line of credit to employees as a perk to drive morale and engagement or be used to cover meals for those that are working late or hosting business meetings. Employers have the ability to add funds, set budget limits and restrictions on purchase categories.
Restaurants on the Grubhub platform are not charged commissions on orders placed in-person with this card, and the pay card complements the company's ongoing efforts to support restaurants – both on and off its marketplace. Since the start of the pandemic, Grubhub has invested hundreds of millions of dollars to directly support restaurants, including over $130 million in reduced or waived fees to help drive more revenue to businesses when their dining rooms were closed, and has given more than $21 million in grants to thousands of restaurants across the country through its Donate the Change program.
