Hometown Eats is a non-profit community initiative developed by the team at Arrowsmith with the objective of helping restaurant owners ensure the continuity of their businesses by promoting alternative delivery and takeout options during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.
As entrepreneurs ourselves, we deeply empathize with the challenges faced by business owners in the wake of strict lock-down requirements and widespread economic uncertainty. We also understand the importance of maintaining the social distancing protocols necessary to protect vulnerable members of our community. Our team of experienced marketing professionals recognized this as an opportunity to leverage our talents to create an online directory connecting local restaurants to their customers in a safe and responsible manner.
Over the past decade, the emergence of various food delivery apps has provided restaurants with an effective means of reaching new customers and generating revenue. Unfortunately, these platforms remain inaccessible outside of major urban centers, and often charge prohibitive service fees to their vendor partners. Unlike other apps and websites, HometownEats is provided at no cost to local businesses and remains a free service for all users.
