Foostix, a Luxembourg-based online meal ordering service, said it was aiming to get more restauranteurs on its system after the government banned dining inside restaurants.
The company, which charges a commission for handling restaurant delivery and takeaway orders, said it made the move to help “restaurateurs keep their establishments open” in the wake of the covid-10 clampdown.
In a press release issued on 17 March, Foostix said:
“In order to allow food service professionals to continue to keep their kitchens open, we decided not to charge any commission on orders throughout the month of March, for new restaurants joining our platform. Only 2.5% bank card transaction fees will be charged.
“For all our partners who are already customers, we have just released a budget for additional communication to strengthen our overall visibility. A digital campaign is already in place by the time you read these lines, with the goal of raising awareness among the local population to order from nearby restaurants.
“Finally, to encourage our users to order from our member restaurants via Foostix.com, additional discounts and loyalty points are now available for all, without conditions.”
Foostix claimed to handle “more than 100,000 orders per year” including both delivery and takeaway at 140 restuarants in Luxembourg.
