Supporting our restaurants during their most difficult days
For over 15 years Grubhub and Seamless (a New York-based takeout marketplace, part of the Grubhub portfolio of brands) have partnered with local restaurants. And when the pandemic hit, we stepped up and gave them support when they need it most.
How we helped
Gave hundreds of millions of dollars of support
Helped restaurant partners through increased marketing and promotions to drive demand, and equipped drivers with personal protective equipment to ensure safety
Provided options for marketing commission-free orders
Offered direct ordering links for restaurants to add online ordering directly to their website and bypass the marketing fee since the restaurant generated the demand
Raised $14 million for local communities
With the creation of the Grubhub Community Relief Fund our diners donated their change to charities providing financial relief to local restaurants and drivers.
Hear the stories
“We realized rather than looking at [Grubhub] as a third party, we look at it as an extension of us, as another way of getting our food delivered to our guests fast without having to build an infrastructure. So once we made that decision, it definitely helped our business.”
Ben’s Chili Bowl
“Being partners with Seamless has been integral in getting through this time of the pandemic. Our takeout business has grown immensely, and Seamless has been largely responsible for that. And we can’t thank them enough for being partners with us.”
Lexington Candy Shop
“Grubhub has helped the business run. They’ve always been there for us, and they’ve always been there for female restaurant owners as well. They’ve also asked us if we need to change things like deposit times to help during this time so we can get our deposits quicker.”
“Coronavirus has truly impacted sales, but the business has grown towards delivery. Seamless is providing us with drivers, it’s connecting us to our customers while they’re able to stay home safely.”
Hamza Deib, Restaurant Owner
