Restaurants in the Omaha subway order the app on site
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – Omaha subway restaurants, usually competitors, work together to order take-out or delivery.
It’s something Clay Seaman wanted to start because the national food service apps weighed on the restaurant’s profits.
“The restaurants cannot afford to pay these high commissions to these national delivery services. The customers pay a lot, the restaurants pay a lot and nobody really gets any of it and the money leaves our area and it doesn’t stay in Omaha, ”Seaman said.
But with Omaha LoCo, they were able to help the restaurants in the area and separate themselves from the rest.
There is no additional fee for customers other than a small delivery fee. The price you see in the app’s menu is the price you pay for.
“You can go to Rathskeller and buy a hamburger for any price. With LoCo, which offers a cheaper and better alternative delivery fee, everyone really has the same chance of fighting,” said Meirr.
The app has benefited places like Nolis Pizzeria.
“We received a call from LoCo and immediately jumped on it. We have already received 3,400 orders within a few months. It’s every 20 minutes, thing thing thing thing. An order has come in, ”said Meirr.
Although the restaurants are competitors, all that goes under the rug is when it comes to keeping them alive. Meirr and Seaman say people should use the app and shop locally even after the pandemic.
“If you support your neighbor, they can support their neighbor, and then they can support mom and dad across the street and they can support collaboration on the other side. If we all help each other, we will all get to the top, ”said Meirr.
“Buy locally with LoCo,” said Seaman.
