LOCAL is a non-profit digital platform which started as an ordering solution for the hospitality industry in order to support them throughout Covid-19 and beyond.
As the pandemic has ended LOCAL has helped many businesses during that time, but has now stepped back for Hungrrr to provide the same level of support LOCAL did for these businesses.
The ordering solution takes online orders for delivery, table service and collection. You can join our growing online. We aim to support all kinds of hospitality businesses by providing a high quality, low cost solution to help merchants and their customers.
You and your customers are still under ever restrictions and you may be adapting your business to offer home delivery or collections, avoiding crowds at the bar or automated ordering to table - for which we recognise you need a simple way to manage orders.
LOCAL & Hungrrr can help you manage your orders and allow customers to place orders online for all the above, via app or QR code. We do not provide delivery services but we can integrate with delivery partners such as Stuart who can fulfil the final mile for you.
Is this really free?
The above companies have covered the cost of developing LOCAL and all the monthly maintenance costs for every site that joins (site development, onboarding, 24/7 helpline etc). All they are asking for in return is 1.4% and 20p per transaction per order. This will help to keep the site free for everyone. That’s it. No hidden extras and no catch.
Hungrrr pay is the perfect partnership between hungrrr and Stripe who are the leading payment gateway provider in the world. Stripe powers millions of businesses from small startups, to global giant such as booking.com, Monzo, ASOS and Xero.
Hungrrr pay is charged at the same rates as Stripe directly which is 1.4% and 20p per transaction. There are no additional fees whatsoever.
We have chosen Stripe based on their excellent technologies, best in class security, speedy onboarding and fast pay-outs.
Why would a consumer join LOCAL (i.e. download the app)?
By downloading the LOCAL app consumers can support businesses in the heart of their communities who may otherwise be facing closure.
Consumers can help to maintain LOCAL community pubs, restaurants and drinks merchants by promoting the app to friends and family.
