If Your Favorite Restaurant doesn’t Deliver With GotChew, They Probably Should!

Shared by contributor Brendan Kurie.

So the other day I had a craving for these awesome fish and chips from one of my favorite restaurants here in New Bedford.
I didn’t feel like packing up the kids and trudging down there, so I went on my favorite food delivery app and a true local small business success story, GotChew, but the restaurant wasn’t on there.

Then I remembered those old cable commercials for the channels we didn’t get. You probably remember them to: “If you want the Disney channel, call your local cable operator.” The idea behind those ads was simple: If the cable company knew there was enough demand, they’d add the channel to their lineup.

It’s the same with GotChew, which can increase a restaurant’s to-go orders by 30% and whose tailored delivery experience means 86% of its customers order at least once a month.

So next time you’re in your favorite spot for that deliciously garlicky mozambique, or grabbing your favorite thin-crust pizza or chowing down on a juicy burger and you notice the restaurant isn’t a partner with GotChew, the area’s only locally born and built delivery service, here’s a little pitch you can give them. (Or just send them straight to this website!)

It’s easy.
It takes just a couple of days to get onto GotChew’s elegant and user-friendly web and mobile app platforms. GotChew handles both pick-up and delivery services, so not only can it expand your customer base, but it can save your staff time and headaches taking pick-up orders over the phone.

It’s inexpensive. There’s no sign-up costs and the service is commission-free for 30 days as part of a limited-time deal.

It’s local. But what’s really important is that they’re local and they provide the best service. There’s no call center halfway around the Globe and you get a personalized experience dealing with actual owners and managers.

It’s effective.
Not only does GotChew offer the lowest commission costs in the industry, it boasts industry-leading service levels, with over 95% of orders picked up by the scheduled time, a stat you won’t find with those national food delivery apps.

It’s more than just a delivery app, it’s a partner. GotChew will come to your restaurant to do a free 10-item menu photo shoot, because we all know the best salesman for that mouth-watering burger is a high-quality photo. Restaurant owners and managers have full access to edit menus, change prices, view sales reports and your restaurant will be included in social media and email newsletter blasts to GotChew’s foodie fanbase.

So let your favorite restaurant in New Bedford, Fall River, Fairhaven, Dartmouth, Somerset or Westport know that they can join more than 100 local restaurants who are already taking advantage of GotChew’s famously simple and effective ordering system and its on-time, friendly delivery services.

Sudders receives Hero for Health Award; cited for MA pandemic response

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. – Marylou Sudders, who serves as Massachusetts Secretary of Health and Human Services and has led the Commonwealth through its coordinated response to the COVID-19 pandemic as head of the state’s Response Command Center, was announced as Southcoast Health’s 2020-21 Hero for Health at St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford today.

Southcoast Health President and CEO Keith Hovan presented Sudders with the award, which was established to recognize leaders dedicated to public health causes.

“This year, more than ever, it feels special to be gathering and celebrating the principle that great health care requires not just great health systems, but strong civic and governmental leaders who truly understand the importance of safety and wellness in the communities we serve,” Hovan said during Tuesday’s ceremony.

Sudders joined Gov. Charlie Baker’s cabinet in 2015 with a background in mental health and social work. She is responsible for overseeing 12 agencies, including MassHealth, with a combined budget of $24 billion – the largest budget in all of Massachusetts state government.

“Secretary Sudders has led our Commonwealth through this pandemic with a solution-focused approach driven by boldness, determination and resolve,” Hovan said. “She was instrumental in ensuring Southcoast Health had access to the tools to properly care for our region – among them, providing PPE and testing supplies in the early stages of the pandemic, partnering with us to establish a field hospital at UMass Dartmouth and facilitating the distribution of life-saving vaccines.”
In accepting the Southcoast Hero for Health award, Sudders said that the Baker-Polito Administration has valued the collaboration of local officials and healthcare entities since the earliest days of the Commonwealth’s pandemic response – and continues to do so.

“With constantly shifting circumstances and new challenges arising throughout the pandemic, providers like Southcoast Health rose to the occasion,” Sudders said. “Today, almost 4.2 million residents are fully vaccinated; we would not be where we are today without the providers, frontline workers, nurses, clinical professionals and others across the Commonwealth who have been such strong advocates for their communities.”

About Southcoast Health
Celebrating the system’s 25th anniversary in 2021, Southcoast Health is a not-for-profit, charitable organization and the largest provider of primary and specialty care in the region, serving communities in Rhode Island and across Southeastern Massachusetts. Southcoast Health is a Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospital in 2019, 2020, and 2021. Out of the 2,743 considered hospitals in the United States, only 250 earned this recognition. In 2020 and 2021, St. Luke’s is a Newsweek and Leapfrog’s Best Maternity Hospitals. In 2019 and 2020, the Southcoast Health system also received seven awards, including Best Hospitals and Best Place to Work, in SouthCoast Media Group’s Best of the Best Awards voted on by residents and readers.
