We are bonafide food connoisseurs and only deliver meals that meet our uncompromising standards for taste and presentation. - Jason Wang, CEO of Caviar
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 01, 2014
Today Caviar announced it has expanded its leading online food order and delivery service for top-rated Chicago restaurants. Caviar fills a critical void for consumers and restaurants by providing the easiest, fastest way to order the best-tasting food online for delivery to homes or businesses.
Working only with the best local establishments, Caviar provides restaurants with a new revenue source and comprehensive delivery infrastructure, including order management, quality control, logistics and its own, on-call drivers. Deliveries cost $9.99 per order for any number of menu items. In Chicago, Caviar is providing free deliveries until mid-July, making it even easier to order from area-favorites such as Smalls and La Sirena Clandestina.
Caviar exists for the love of the food – the best-tasting and highest-quality. Caviar’s team of Tastemakers embodies this ethos by conducting extensive taste testing and market research so that only the best tasting, highest quality restaurant food is available for delivery. Only restaurants that meet the uncompromising standards of the Caviar Tastemakers qualify for Caviar delivery. Nearly all restaurants must also earn at least a four-star Yelp rating to be considered for Caviar delivery.
“We noticed many top rated restaurants did not offer delivery to homes or businesses,” said Jason Wang, CEO of Caviar. “We saw a big opportunity to fill this need. We are bonafide food connoisseurs and only deliver meals that meet our uncompromising standards for taste and presentation.”
As a valuable service for busy families and professionals with little time to shop for food and cook meals, Caviar brings delicious food into homes or businesses that customers can enjoy every day. Caviar is the only service of its kind to feature all of the following:
- Only the best local restaurants offering the best tasting, highest quality food
- Full picture menus: hi-res photos of every item Caviar delivers
- Fastest delivery: real-time GPS delivery tracking using its own drivers
- No minimum order requirements
- Customized orders with a one-hour delivery window.
- The ability to order meals and schedule deliveries up to six days in advance.
How It Works – Fast and Easy
Unlike other services, Caviar customers first select their desired one-hour delivery window. Then customers place their online order for delivery on the same day or on a future date with any of the available restaurants. This saves valuable time sifting through restaurants that are not available within the selected one-hour delivery window.
Customers can also order as a group by sharing their shopping cart with friends, family, and co-workers. This is especially valuable for companies that use Caviar for catering or corporate meal programs through restaurants like Publican Quality Meats. Unlike other services, Caviar services both companies and consumers with the same premium food and delivery service, including dedicated account managers that provide rapid solutions to any customer request. And thanks to its real-time GPS delivery tracking, Caviar customers always know the location of their order during its delivery route.
The Caviar Customer Success Team also distinguishes itself from other delivery services by being highly proactive, friendly and responsive to customers at every single point of interaction. Customers can always talk live with Caviar by phone or get email responses to any question within minutes. The team’s rapport with restaurant partners helps them customize orders to meet individual needs and requests.
Profitable just three months after its initial launch, Caviar is projecting a 200 percent annual revenue increase in 2014. The company is on track to grab a significant portion of the $200 billion market Americans spend annually on food takeout and delivery. Caviar is servicing tens of thousands of orders every month and is rapidly expanding to various U.S. cities. Formal announcements for expansion to Boston and Los Angeles are expected soon.
