The residents of Torquay will be able to enjoy local food from miles away through a new food delivery service application that will be available for their use next month.
Torquay Eats has been in the works for some time now, but news of the official launch was announced three weeks ago. The application will officially be available for download on December 2 this year.
People residing in Torquay can enjoy a different range of cuisines such as fast food, Indian, Chinese, desserts, and kebabs from 20 various food outlets in their vicinity including the famous Green Chillies, Jade Garden, Torr Grill, and Mama’s Desserts among many others.
According to owner Simon Stewart, he has noticed the need for food delivery applications during these times, as well as in the future, as people would prefer pressing buttons and having food delivered without having to engage in face-to-face conversation.
Despite the current influx of food delivery services at this time, Torquay Eats will be charging their partner food outlets with significantly less on commission, which will considerably benefit the area’s local restaurants.
Stewart also added that although it would take a while to gain awareness and trust from local food businesses, he hopes that restaurants would come to know that they would make more money and would migrate to their system.
His aim for developing and launching the application would be supporting small local businesses, especially with there being a current economic struggle worldwide. With it also comes the ease of the consumers who would have a wide selection of food delivered with just a press of a button.
Although the select restaurants are located in Torquay, Stewart has mentioned that there are two other outlets based on Chelson and Preston, as well as plans in the future to add restaurants from Paignton.
