BringMeThat Press Roundup — 5/30/13

Online food delivery

Hot off the presses!

We’re excited to share that BringMeThat got some attention from the press this week! BringMeThat is an online food delivery service that launched at the beginning of the year and currently offers delivery from nearly 5,000 restaurants across Ohio, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. Users simply enter their address to begin browsing restaurants that deliver to them.

Check out a service review of BringMeThat from Becca Gomez Farrell‘s invaluable food blog — The Gourmez. Becca is based out of Durham, NC.

“[BringMeThat] gives you a list of nearby restaurants offering delivery to your area. The website is easily navigable, and if you have any difficulties, a chat window pops up after a few minutes to assist you [...] I placed my order for Asian Kitchen, and the food was at my house in half the estimated time on the confirmation email [...] So if you’re looking for an easier way to get delivery from a favorite local restaurant in NC, give Bring Me That a whirl. - (The Gourmez Blog)

We were also featured in Crain’s Cleveland Business in their “Bright Spots” segment — “a weekly web feature that highlights positive developments in the Northeast Ohio business community.”

“BringMeThat already has been operating in Ohio and North Carolina. With the addition of Pennsylvania as a service territory, the company says it will offer delivery from nearly 5,000 restaurants. In the last month, BringMeThat says it has processed orders from 66 different cities [...] The BringMeThat model aims to replace the traditional method of searching for restaurants one-by-one and placing orders by phone.” - (Crain’s Cleveland Business)

Guide to Ohio rib festivals — Memorial Day through June

Memorial Day weekend marks the start of grilling season. BringMeThat — an online food delivery service that launched in Ohio (our CEO hails from Strongsville) — has prepared a guide to help you find the tastiest and the closest cook-offs. Enjoy!

Marc’s Rib Cook-Off | Cleveland, OH | May 24-27

This four-day rib festival represents something like the launch of the summer grilling season. Billed as “Northeast Ohio’s biggest and most popular backyard BBQ,” it will center around an amateur grilling competition to determine who can cook up the best ribs and the best sauce. Featuring musical performances by Rick Springfield, Buddy Guy and Bret Michaels. Admission $5.

Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off | Berea, OH | May 24-27

Come out on Memorial Day weekend to join in the 15th annual Berea’s National Rib Cook-Off. Held at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds, the festival includes an 80s night, a country music night, a bike night and a Miss Berea competition. There are activities for all ages (and kids get in free).

From Berea’s FAQ:
Q: What kind of food is available?
A: Ribs, ribs, and more ribs, which you can wash down with a slab of ribs. For those who desire something other than ribs, we have a wide range of alternative fare available, from hot dogs to funnel cakes, french fries, strawberry crepes, pierogies, cotton candy and other traditional festival fare.

Meigs County Gold Wings & Ribs Fest | Pomeroy, OH | June 7-8

Come celebrate motorcycles and ribs at this two-day festival in Pomeroy — located in southeast Ohio. There will be contests for Ohio’s Best Ribs and Ohio’s Best Wings. It’s not just about ribs, though. There will be motorcycle shows and Art in the Park, and for those who’d prefer not to eat ribs, the festival menu also includes roast beef and Italian sausage.

Bedford Rotary Rib Fest | Bedford, OH | May 31 – June 2

There will be plenty of delicious ribs being cooked at the Bedford Rotary Rib Fest and there will be live entertainment, but the centerpiece of this event is the Vintage Bike Show held on June 1. It’s one of only three such shows in the Midwest. Come to see the best vintage bikes in more than nine different categories.

* It’s not specifically about ribs, but we also recommend checking out the Taste of Cincinnati festival, happening May 25-27 (Memorial Day weekend).

City breakdown of our last 100 Ohio orders

Ohio food delivery

Breakdown of our last 100 orders in Ohio

A few months ago we opened our online food delivery service to Cleveland and Cuyahoga County.  As the weeks went by we expanded into all of Ohio. Now that some time has passed we’ve been reflecting on our original assessment of the market.  Would our business model of having online food delivery available on a site that covers the whole state and not just a few selective cities be viable or would it work in only a few markets?

Actually more than half of our business comes from these under served markets.  At 47 cities this proves to us that people outside of the top three cities are indeed hungry for online food delivery.

When talking to our customers a lot of the dialogue is around how few options they had before we showed up and how great it is to see all the restaurants in their area that will deliver to them.

Not seeing your city on this list?  At over 300 restaurants in Ohio we’ve got you covered. Log onto BringMeThat and Click-Click-Eat!

We’d love to hear from you too – have an interesting food delivery story?  Send ‘em over.

BringMeThat Press Roundup – 5/15/13

Online food delivery

Hot off the presses!

BringMeThat‘s online food delivery service got some good press today! Check out excerpts below from articles in two North Carolina-based publications.

_______

Read a review of our service in Mary Cowx’s indispensable food blog, Fervent Foodie, based out of Charlotte:

“Few can argue it’d be easier and more convenient to browse menus and place orders online in real-time. That’s where BringMeThat.com comes into play [...] Overall, I think this is a great service, and one that has potential to do well both in Charlotte and in other cities. If you head on over to the BringMeThat Facebook page you can get $5 off your first order!” – (Fervent Foodie)

_______

We also got a write-up in Clarion Content – a multimedia consulting group out of Durham, NC (our current headquarters):

“Have you heard, dear readers, about the latest edition to the Triangle Startup Factory, Durham’s entrepreneurial incubator in the American Tobacco Campus? ‘Bring Me That’ is an on-line food delivery service for smaller restaurants.

“Sure you can order Domino’s from your iPhone already, but if you want something from a Mom-n-Pop restaurant, it isn’t that easy. This is just the niche ‘Bring Me That’ hopes to fill.” – (Clarion Content)

New restaurants opening in Columbus, OH

BringMeThat recently expanded to North Carolina, but Ohio is where we started, and now we’re pleased to offer online food delivery from more than 1,400 restaurants in the state. We’ve been keeping up with the food scene in Ohio and present you this list of new restaurants opening in the Columbus area.

Tree Spirit Coffee | Coffee / Tea / Breakfast
Intersection of Woodruff Ave. and Tuller St.

Tree Spirit Coffee has relocated to the Ohio State campus. Started by Alison Ortega, a former Buckeye, Tree Spirit brings a high-end approach to its food service — even though it’s a beverage truck. “Six baristas work at Tree Spirit, all of whom had to undergo about three months of training at Ortega’s home before the shop opened. Each barista came in at least twice a week, working four-to-six hour shifts to exercise their skills in pulling espresso shots and texturing milk.”

The Pint House Beer Garden | Beer / Wine / Spirits / Bar Food
780 North High St., Columbus, OH 43201

The Pint House Beer Garden is the newest bar in The Short North. It features a full bar with a vast beer selection, a full kitchen serving pub food and Sunday brunch service. “I think the key feature is that it’s a real indoor/outdoor beer garden courtyard,” says co-owner Mike Gallicchio. “It should remind you of an old-world European beer hall.” Continue reading…

The benefits of ordering food delivery online

For a long time, ordering food delivery has been a drawn-out and unorganized process. In 2013, with the Internet at our fingertips 24/7, the traditional model doesn’t square with our technological capabilities, and, more importantly, it doesn’t square with what customers want.

Old Model: Hunt and Dial

If you wanted to order delivery, that first meant researching restaurants one by one to see if they (A) offer delivery (B) have the food you want (C) will deliver to your address. Maybe you could find their delivery fee, maybe you couldn’t. Once you found the perfect place, it was time to pick up the phone.

Someone at the restaurant answers. “Hello! Hold, please.”  You wait. Then you order what you’d like to eat, one item at a time. “Pepperoni. PEPPERONI. P as in pony. E as in eagle … ” Wait. Then you give your address. Wait. Then you recite your phone number. Wait. Then you read your debit card information. Wait. A tumbleweed rolls by.

Eventually your order is placed, and you’ve hung up. Still, you can’t help but worry that the mumbling, disinterested person on the other end of the line won’t get your food from the restaurant to you without something going horribly awry. This is the Old Model, and considering the alternative, it’s far too commonplace.

New Model: Browse and Click

You decide to order delivery. Instead of hunting for restaurants one by one through the Yellow Pages or Google, you go to one site — BringMeThat.com — enter your address, and instantly you gain access to a comprehensive list of restaurants that deliver to you. Continue reading…
