A new food delivery service that enables people to order from multiple traders in one go has launched in Nottingham.
Notts.Kitchen is the brainchild of Antonio Vendone, founder of Clean Cut Kitchen.
Vendone, 40, from Nottingham, launched the platform following success during the first lockdown, when he collaborated with vegan burger joint 13th Element to offer delivery and takeaway services.
Notts.Kitchen grew from there, with Vendone going on to join forces with a number of other independent eateries based in the Victoria Centre’s Nottingham Street Food Club, as well as local taxi firm DG Cars for delivery.
“We got a collective of business owners who work in hospitality to pull together and create some new brands and work with some brands that are already out there to launch a new delivery service.” he explained.
What makes Notts.Kitchen stand out from the competition is the collaboration between the brands involved.
Thanks to all the restaurants on offer being in one place, users can order from multiple traders in one go.
“There’s so many families at home at the moment; someone may want a burger, whilst someone else wants pizza and another wants something healthy. We put something together where they could get everything in one delivery, but can pick from different traders.”
Notts.Kitchen currently offers choices from eight traders – with options ranging from falafel to chicken and waffles.
“We put something together where (you) could get everything in one Delivery”
It’s not just local traders who are being supported through Notts.Kitchen, but Nottingham based taxi firm, DG Cars, too.
“A lot of their trade is night-time trade… that just isn’t there. We’ve integrated their app into ours so as orders come in, we request taxis to delivery them.”
Following a soft launch before Christmas, Vendone is looking forward to expanding Notts.Kitchen over the next few months after their planned official launch in a few weeks.
“We’ve only scratched the surface… We’ve got a few more ideas to launch, like Sunday dinners. We’ve got a couple of other traders joining us, as well.”
There’s no doubt that the app will help to easy tensions over where the family takeaway is ordered from this lockdown…
