Focusing on smaller areas, supporting local restaurants and investing in local economies. Local Eats are a great example of how the regionalised model can truly compete against the national takeaway aggregators.
Utilising our marketplace technology they successfully support their licensees in launching localised food marketplaces with the ‘Eats’ branding.
Starting in Barrow-in-Furness they quickly became a local favourite for takeaway ordering. From here they expanded across the UK through a network of licensees operating in new areas. Redbox has the infrastructure to handle the increase in order transactions, users and support requirements. Local Eats can rest assured that the technology will back them up and allow them to focus on commercial growth and licensee support.
Some key Redbox features allow Local Eats to do what they do. Multi-level financial reporting means they can analyse all transactions and pay marketplaces and takeaways accurately. Automated app management means the 150+ apps are maintained and updated easily. Vital for a business model consisting of lots of stakeholders, lots of apps and thousands of transactions a day.
Over a hundred Local Eats marketplaces are operating in the UK now and Redbox continues to support them in the next stage in their growth. New features and the overall growth of the Redbox platform means Local Eats and their network can continue to trend in the right direction.
