SkipTheDishes Announces Support For Peel Restaurants

This afternoon, I got a message from SkipTheDishes in relation to supporting Peel Region restaurants. Here’s the message in full:

As a proudly Canadian brand, we’re standing by our restaurant partners across the city as their dining rooms are required to close, responding to their needs with an impactful support package for affected restaurants 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
  • 10% commission rate to any restaurant looking to utilize staff to facilitate their own delivery
  • 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

This support package will be rolled out to affected partners across the Peel Region on Monday, November 23, 2020 when the new restrictions take place and SkipTheDishes is prepared to action similar measures across the country as further restrictions are announced. Skip has also continued its support for Toronto and Quebec restaurants on the network as restrictions continue in those regions. 

“The restaurant community is at the heart and soul of communities across Quebec. We’ve seen the effects that these closures have had on our restaurant partners and we are working tirelessly to support them as they adapt their businesses to keep their kitchens open,” says Kevin Edwards, CEO, SkipTheDishes. 

“With pickup and delivery orders becoming a critical revenue stream for restaurants, Skip stands with our local partners throughout this new wave of restrictions.

Since the start of the pandemic, SkipTheDishes has worked alongside our restaurant partners to proactively offer impactful support, as they continue to navigate the effects of COVID-19 on the restaurant industry. To date, we have provided over $30 million to our restaurant partners in commission rebates and order-driving initiatives.
