In the past year, restaurant-chains have relied on delivery. Many businesses without un-house delivery have relied on third-party delivery marketplaces.
As restaurants lean into off-premises for the foreseeable future, many are looking at ways to boost the bottom line. At Restaurant Next, three executives shared their insights on how to best navigate the complex world of delivery. Matt Friedman, founder, Wing Zone, which offers in-house delivery and third-party delivery at its 70 restaurants, shared his best practices for standing up a native delivery program.
Restaurants can now continue to grow delivery teams using the DriveFreedom 'Request a Driver' service.
How it Works
DriveFreedom Classifieds helps member drivers get regular gigs and build long-term relationships with businesses through classified-style listings along with proactive marketing and matching service. DriveFreedom does not charge commission fees with its direct P2P services.
Any business can complete the RAD listing that seeks delivery drivers. The request is based on location, vehicle type and service. For example, a pizza restaurant may request delivery drivers to work busy weekends and/or evening shifts. The purpose of the RAD listing is two-fold. The actual listing is searchable by users. As a user makes a request, the DriveFreedom staff are alerted and set out to find drivers that match.
The RAD listing does not include the identity of the customer, and DriveFreedom vets the applicants. All drivers on the platform have to become members, pass the entry requirements and submit a Driver Services Listing before having access to RAD listings.
No Commission or Delivery Fees
DriveFreedom Classifieds is not a commission-charging, middleman app. Rather, It is an advanced directory listing app. The 'Demand Side' listing is 'Request-a-Driver', while the 'Supply Side' is Driver Services Listings by vehicles. DriveFreedom acts as the matchmaker.
