BringMeThat News and Reviews

Online food delivery

Hot off the presses!

BringMeThat was recently featured in The Temple News, the student paper at Temple University in Philadelphia. Reporter Sarae Gdovin wrote about BringMeThat’s expansion into Philadelphia and about the state of the online food delivery business.

“The convenience of food delivery used to be restricted to pizza and the occasional Chinese restaurant. But now, more and more restaurants are offering delivery for their customers. Websites like GrubHub and Seamless have made it easier by providing information on delivery to restaurants in large cities. A new website, BringMeThat.com, is taking that idea and expanding out of large cities, bringing a database of food delivery nationwide.” (The Temple News)

The Food Hussy wrote a service review of BringMeThat after ordering a meal from our site. The Food Hussy has been blogging about Cincinnati restaurants and food culture for five years now. In June, she wrote a guest post for us exploring the best lesser-known restaurants in Cincinnati.

“It’s so much easier to go to one site rather than hunt and peck and wonder who delivers in my area. You might even find out about a new restaurant you didn’t even know was in your neck of the woods.” (The Food Hussy)

The Philadelphia food blog, Phoodie, wrote a tongue-in-cheek article about our Pennsylvania launch, entitled: “BringMeThat.com Now Delivers In Pennsylvania Because You’re Fat AND Lazy.” Honestly, the real reason we’ve added online food delivery in Pennsylvania is because you’re smart and beautiful.

“[BringMeThat] is offering delivery not just to the big mean cities, but the suburbs and the Alabama part of Pennsylvania as well [...] Of BringMeThat’s 1999 restaurants in PA, 1480 of them are scattered about the state. As a suburban kid at heart, we can’t help but have slightly warmer cockles at the very idea of this idea.” (Phoodie)

David L. McCreary is a food writer for Cary Magazine and for his own blog, Lunchboy Says. He tried out BringMeThat’s service and wrote a review of the experience.

“Recently I had the opportunity to check out an interesting online food delivery service called BringMeThat. Let’s face it: Sometimes it’s nice when you don’t have to cook or leave home to get quality grub! Bottom line: It’s a legitimate and convenient service available to make life easier for people like you and me. Be sure to give it a try.” (Lunchboy Says)

BringMeThat Press Roundup – 7/3/2013

Online food delivery

Hot off the presses!

The Duke Chronicle in Durham, NC just published an article about BringMeThat and our connection to the Triangle Startup Factory:

So far, 1459 restaurants in North Carolina are listed on the BringMeThat website. 80 are specific to Durham, including chains as well as local staples like Parker & Otis and Ninth Street Bakery. In addition to full menus, BringMeThat also lists minimum order amounts, delivery fees and notes such as “catering only.” [...]

The draw of online ordering is mostly to save the time it takes to make a full phone call, which often involves being put on hold. Liang also noted that the website saves customer preferences to make future ordering easier. (The Duke Chronicle)

Elliot over at the fantastic eatRaleigh blog posted a review of BringMeThat after ordering Capital Creations through our site. A very thorough and fair write-up:

When first logging into the site I was delighted to see a clean and cool design. Some of the other delivery service websites look like they were designed by middle school computer classes [...] The delivery time was as promised, clocking in at around 40 minutes. Everything was well packaged and still warm [...]

Raleigh will continue to grow, and with it many more homebodies and couch potatoes will be in search of great food at the convenience of Bring Me That. – (eatRaleigh)

In June, BringMeThat completed its session at the Triangle Startup Factory. The culmination was Paradoxos — a two-day festival in Durham spotlighting entrepreneurship and technology. On the first day of the festival, “pitch day,” BringMeThat CEO Jason Liang explained the company to an audience of investors and Media. Beforehand, co-founder Michael LaMarca sat down for an interview with ExitEvent.

“The community here has really been amazing,” LaMarca said. “It’s been great to be part of Durham’s startup scene. With it only being a few years old, it’s like being part of something ground level.”

And if Paradoxos turns out like its organizers hope, Durham won’t be ground level for much longer. – (ExitEvent)

Also, a shout-out to Nanci O, who we met at Paradoxos and who mentioned us on her great blog about hip-hop in the Southeast.

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)
