SkipTheDishes Announces Support for Local Restaurants As Second Wave of COVID-19 Hits

SkipTheDishes, Canada’s largest online food delivery network, announces initiatives to support their restaurant partners through new waves of restrictions as provinces begin to implement new measures to manage the pandemic’s second wave. 

As the Canadian leader in online food delivery, Skip is responding to the needs of its partners to develop an impactful support package for affected restaurants in regions experiencing restaurant closures that includes:

  • A 25% rebate on commission for local, independent restaurant partners 
  • 0% commission rate for any new restaurants joining the network during the restriction period
  • Additional marketing and order-driving initiatives that can both increase repeat orders and attract new customers, like the launch of Skip Rewards 
  • The continuation of Skip’s restaurant tipping initiative, which has seen over $1 million in generous donations from customers go directly to local restaurants 
  • App functionality that allows partners to diversify their menu offerings, increasing orders and revenue

Skip has already launched this support package for affected areas in both Ontario and Quebec last week, and is ready to action similar support across the country as provincial government restrictions of restaurants are announced. 

Since the start of the pandemic, Skip has worked alongside its restaurant partners to proactively provide impactful support as they continue to navigate the continued effects of COVID-19 on the industry. To date, Skip has provided $24 million to its restaurant partners in commission rebates and order-driving initiatives.
