Newcomer food delivery app Grub has entered the UAE’s food delivery marketplace, launching its services across Dubai. Offering a flexible and easy to manage system, the platform offers simple flat-rate mobile food delivery for local restaurants and wholesalers. The mobile app is offering venues 0% commission for the first six months if they sign up in the launch month as the new app is intended to help outlets that are struggling to manage costs, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Grub concept has been in the pipeline for the past 18 months, during this time all of the integrations have undergone rigorous testing by restaurant owners. The app is set to soft launch this week in the BETA phase. Unlike most delivery platforms, Grub will begin operations while only taking a AED 1 success fee per order, which is a game changing rate amongst the current delivery aggregators.
Conceptualised by the restauranteur and COO of Grub, Edgar Jimenez, Grub aims to support restaurant owners amidst a monopolized delivery world. He comments, “I’ve experienced first-hand the struggle to connect with a client base via food aggregators. At Grub, we’re extremely passionate about helping our restaurant community not only navigate through the public health crisis, but also take control of the customer experience, so restaurants can thrive as the industry begins to recover.”
Further extending relief to the restaurant community, restaurants have the creative control of their pages, whereby they can upload all their content and control discounts and offers themselves. Additionally, restaurants can map their delivery areas and use their drivers or, at an affordable cost, they can opt to use a third-party driver as an option from the app.
For customers, Grub is designed to be user-friendly and is a free to use mobile food-ordering application available on iOS and Android that offers a variety of quality restaurants and wholesalers from which to choose.
