Customers all over town have limited access to high-quality food options from the best places in town.
This is due to independent restaurants being alienated from food delivery services. With commissions as high as 35%, unreliable operations support and premium concepts getting lost in the noise of thousands of food options - many restaurants choose not to opt-into delivery at all.
Lack of higher-end delivery options marks a missed opportunity as the over-35s segment with higher purchasing power is growing rapidly. Inundated with options, 61% of non-millennial's find delivery overall frustrating. We believe it is time to create a better option.
Championing the local best, Big Night is an online food delivery service that partners with selected independent food vendors to deliver exceptional meals to customers at home, in their office or wherever they choose, always offering fair commissions with an unparalleled dine-at-home experience.
We already have our SEIS approval, with £135,000 of our allocation left.
We aim to run a transparent business model that helps our community. The better our friends do, the greater the outcome for us. No hidden fees, no small print - just making sure we champion our industry and provide the best delivery service for our customers.
Our platform allows independent restaurants to showcase their menu online and facilitates the delivery of the items to their customers. For this, we charge a 5-6.5% commission from the restaurant and a £1 service charge on each order from the customer.
The drivers are paid a minimum London Living Wage per hour and can earn more depending on demand.
We have loyal customers who come back for repeat purchases and our supportive restaurant partners help us achieve a low-cost new customer acquisition.
We aim to further expand our business model to diversify and grow our revenue, through other opportunities.
