Melbourne eateries offering delivery and special deals amid coronavirus shut down
The hospitality industry is scrambling to remain afloat as new coronavirus restrictions force restaurants, pubs and cafes to stop opening to diners.
While many eateries are offering delivery via food delivery apps like Uber Eats, Menulog and Deliveroo, these apps charge commission, so many restaurants are also offering their own delivery service during these unprecedented times.
“Contact your restaurants before you open your favourite delivery app,” Noah from Asian street food restaurant, Rice Paper Scissors, urged.
“Some of the delivery platforms charge anywhere from 14 to 30 per cent commission, which make it hard to make a profit even at the best of times.”
Here are the details of the restaurants and eateries offering special services which you may have heard on 3AW today:
Pasta shop offering free delivery and a complimentary bottle of wine with pasta and sauce purchases over $100.
Also offering $10 pick up meals (pizza, pasta, arancini) from stores in Oakleigh, Oakleigh East, Camberwell, Glen Iris, Mentone, Moorabbin, South Melbourne.
