The convenience of online food ordering is traveling ever further into the forefront of public view, but the scope of delivery options has not changed much. When Austin Schatz graduated from college and returned to his home in Westchester County, he was struck with the idea that there was a market for upscale food delivery.
He rallied a few friends and Westchester Select Delivery was born.
“I know there’s a market for this,” says CEO Schatz, “We have talked to similar businesses all over the country and we think there are people in offices who are tired of sandwiches and commuters too tired to cook who will be happy to know about us.”
Where ordering for delivery can quickly become an exercise in apathy, Westchester Select Delivery is trying to shake things up a bit, while giving some great local spots a presence in the virtual marketplace that people are really laying into when they decide to find a meal.
“One thing that we pretty regularly get when telling people about us is asking if we are like Seamless or Grubhub,” says Marketing Director, Dylan Robinson. “The difference between them and us is that where those services tend to bring more orders to restaurants that already deliver, we focus on bringing delivery options to restaurants that haven’t considered or tried delivery before – the dine-in, Mom & Pop kind of places.”
Westchester Select Delivery makes possible delivery from local restaurants including Samosa and Piccola Trattoria of Dobbs Ferry, Chutney Masala, River City Grille, and Woolfert’s Roost of Irvington, The River Grill, Seaspice, and The Huddle of Sleepy Hollow. Their list of restaurant partners expands at a rate of about 2 restaurants weekly.
