Grab a local bite! 15 traders you should try on CityGrab
Now more than ever, it is crucial that we come together and support local businesses facing immense pressure in the face of the coronavirus outbreak.
We can all do our bit to help keep our favourite places going during these difficult times, so that when the gloom lifts they are ready and waiting to welcome us back.
Bringing together an exclusive selection of independent eateries and takeaways, the aim of City Grab is to provide a fairer service and keep money firmly within the local economy.
It’s more efficient than anything currently out there as City have 2,000 drivers on the road, completing 150,000 journeys every week. This allows them to deliver further and faster than their competitors. Going hand-in-hand with the local focus, City Grab charges fairer commission rates to businesses using the app. These are 50% less when compared to typical discounts offered by global food delivery giants… plus the taxi driver delivering the food receives all the delivery fare too.
It’s supporting your local businesses, keeping your city’s economy strong, and providing fresh choice from your favourite Sheffield food vendors and restaurants.
Since launching in March, the app has been growing rapidly and at time of print there are now over 50 businesses signed up – local legends, new kids on the foodie block, places that will safely bring beers, spirits and even cocktails to your front door. Tummy rumbling?
Here’s a closer look at what you could soon be tucking into…
