Spyce's in-house delivery team will deliver using electric mopeds.
As more and more restaurants are leaning into off prem, they’re looking at ways to improve their margins. At Restaurant Next, Wing Zone, PF Chang’s and 4R Smokehouse shared their approach to third-party and/or in-house or native delivery.
Spyce is among the restaurants adding in-house delivery and has created its own delivery fleet of zero-emission electric mopeds that are fitted with warming and cooling compartments to keep hot and cold dishes at the ideal temperature. Initial delivery radius will cover Boston’s Back Bay, Battery Wharf, Financial District, North End and West End neighborhoods with more neighborhoods to roll out in the coming weeks. Drivers will be Spyce employees who are cross-trained on all roles in the restaurant, says Farid.
TikTok Challenge in the Making?
Spyce plans to continue to use the mopeds for delivery throughout the winter, says Farid.
Also in the works, Spyce plans to open a second location in Cambridge’s Harvard Square neighborhood.
Located at 241 Washington Street, between Court Street and School Street, Spyce is open for lunch and dinner, including delivery and pick-up, every day beginning at 11 a.m. until 9 p.m.
Spyce is funded by Maveron, Khosla Ventures and Collaborative Fund. Chefs including Thomas Keller, Jerome Bocuse, and Gavin Kaysen, as well as Culinary Advisor Chef Daniel Boulud are prominent culinary angel investors in Spyce.
