Uit eten: Thuisbezorgd launches new delivery option for terraces
In order to support businesses across the Netherlands as terraces open on Wednesday, Thuisbezorgd has launched a new delivery service: alongside “delivery” and “pick-up” the company will also offer “eating out" (uit eten) for customers who are sitting on terraces.
Thuisbezorgd hopes to support businesses as they reopen
To the relief of many, the Dutch government announced at the press conference on April 20 that restaurants and bars across the country would be able to welcome customers after being closed for six months. Now, each establishment will be able to serve a maximum of 50 customers on their terraces.
Thuisbezorgd has jumped on the news, launching a brand new feature. According to their website, uit eten will “allow customers who are dining at restaurants to order and pay directly via the Thuisbezorgd.nl app.” They hope it will allow employees to manage a large number of orders in a convenient way and with a safe, contactless payment option.
New uit eten function available for customers on terraces
Customers will be able to order and pay via the Thuisbezorgd app, but will be asked to include their table number and a short description about where they’re seated through the comments function available on the app. The order will then be sent directly to the establishment, who can complete the order and deliver it to the table.
Uit eten will be available to customers and businesses alike from April 28. Vice president of Thuisbezorgd, Brenno Misuraca, called the launch a “logical step,” which should help to ensure “a beautiful and safe summer.”
