This time is very stressful for every individual and some specific industries are suffering big time. This week South Australian developed Restaurant Runner app is adapting to the changes, especially within the food delivery service industry since further regulations have been actioned with the current Coronavirus scandal.
The app originally launched in late November 2019 and was developed by local Adelaide Hills restaurateur, Che Zahra. Che and his wife Rebecca are the owners of Jimmies Restaurant situated on Main Street Crafers and Miss Perez Kitchen & Bar located in the heart of Stirling.
The app encourages hospitality outlets around Adelaide to sign up, be featured and offer a range of cuisines from across the state, with a vision to deliver food to as many locals as possible as we approach a potential heightened period of isolation.
The team at Restaurant Runner want to ensure that the hospitality staff can remain employed during this scary period by moving them into the roles of deliver drivers/riders rather than contracting the work to already established platforms.
“In light of the significant downturn in our industry, we have been forced to think outside the box. After being approached by Emily Raven, owner of city-based café “My Kingdom For A Horse”, we came up with the idea to use her waiting staff as delivery drivers which helps keep staff employed whilst having food and beverages delivered to customers with the option of zero contact. Restaurant Runner is now offering this model for all interested food businesses to help retain staff and keep people supporting local business”, said Che Zahra.
Restaurant Runner app currently offers delivery from:
Jimmies Restaurant, Crafers
Miss Perez Kitchen & Bar, Stirling
Bam Bam Chicken, Stirling
My Kingdom For A Horse, Adelaide
