BEACHWOOD, Ohio — The City of Beachwood has extended the "Beachwood Delivers" program due to success during the city's trial run.
The program, a free service in which city drivers deliver food from Beachwood restaurants to local addresses, made more than $15,000 dollars in its first two and a half weeks, according to a press release sent out by the city.
“As of January 10, our restaurants saved $5,879 with our fee-free service, compared against the 30-percent charged by third-party delivery apps,” said Beachwood Mayor Martin Horwitz, “and our customers saved an estimated $9,000 in menu upcharges, increased taxes, and service and delivery fees. With numbers like that, extending Beachwood Delivers through February was an easy decision.”
In fact, the city believes so strongly in "Beachwood Delivers" that it has invested an additional $10,000 in the program, a move which the Ohio Restaurant Association is applauding.
“The Ohio Restaurant Association is thrilled with the success of the Beachwood Delivers program, as well as its extension," said Tod Bowen, Managing Director of External Affairs & Government Relations for the Ohio Restaurant Association. "This is wonderful way for a community to gather around and support its local restaurant, foodservice, hospitality businesses and their customers, saving them time and money to invest back into the economy."
