C. Neil Talbot remembers that day four years ago when he was at home with a friend, they were hungry and badly wanted to make a quick run to a local Thai restaurant to get some take out food.
But Talbot couldn't find the Thai restaurant menu.
He knew he had it somewhere.
After all, he'd get a menu on his front door every Thursday. But he'd either throw them away or they'd fall to the ground and litter the neighborhood.
"I suppose you could guess at what you wanted," says Talbot, "but we really wanted to see a menu."
That's when the idea came: What if take out restaurant menus were easily available online?
He cooked up a business plan and now GrabTakeout.com is a booming web site offering menus from Japanese Restaurants, Chinese Restaurants and many other take out restaurants.
"Grabtakeout.com helps to solve the eternal question of what do you want to eat," says Talbot.
Grabtakeout.com is easy to use and has all the ingredients consumers would want. It's easy to use, you just enter your city and state and/or zip code and you'll find menus from restaurants in your area. You can also look for delivery restaurants, catering restaurants or look for restaurants that accept credit card and checks.
And it's also a good deal for restaurants. It's free for restaurants to post their menus and the web site has just about every cuisine: from Japanese Restaurants and Chinese Restaurants to Mexican Restaurants.
"Most restaurants are under the impression that they need a web site," says Talbot, "but they don't know anything about the Internet. Even though you build an expensive nice-looking web site, no one goes there."
Talbot says people want menus and a one-stop shopping source for take out restaurants.
"It's made my life easier and I know it's doing the same thing for other take out restaurant lovers."
