Online food ordering and delivery service Just Eat has today extended its coronavirus support measures to independent restaurants across England as the country enters a four-week lockdown.
The measures were introduced last month to help restaurants unable to operate a dine-in service in Northern Ireland, Wales and the central Scottish belt, which previously faced the most severe level of restrictions.
They will now apply to English restaurants that already use the Just Eat courier service as well as those looking to partner with Just Eat.
Running from 5th November until 2nd December, the support measures include:
A 25% discount on commission for independent restaurants that use Just Eat’s courier service
Removal of commission on collection orders for all independent restaurant partners
Provision of a merchandising and supplies package, with choices including PPE, to all independent restaurant partners
Additionally, further support measures will continue to be applied across the UK, including:
Removal of sign up fees for independent restaurants
Removal of commission fees for the first month for new independent restaurants joining the Just Eat platform
Additional support including the provision of dedicated food safety, tax and legal support for all restaurant partners
