RHINELANDER - In bigger cities, people who want delivered at home contact services like Uber Eats or Grubhub. Around here, similar options don't go much beyond ordering a pizza. But a new service starting in Rhinelander has expanded those options.
"Delivrize" recently tested its service in Menomonie and now it's launching its services in Rhinelander.
One of the restaurants involved is CT's Deli. Many people come to CT's Deli to dine in or carry out.
"For us it's going to increase our sales," said Ct's Deli Co-Owner Rhonda Jicinsky.
Another option coming to Rhinelander will allow restaurants to get their food on the road.
"What's nice about it, is that we can say that the delivery hours that, might not work for us," said Jicinsky.
"Deliverize" reached out to many restaurants across the region. Some have already signed on and hope to start things up soon.
"How cool would that be if they have so many restaurants involved that each day they're like, they can go on and say, do you feel like Chinese, do you feel like Mexican, do you feel like burgers," said Jicinsky.
The service is in its early stages. The planning only took around three weeks. Now the restaurant is working on getting it going.
"Just be patient with them, this is their first launch, we're going to get the kinks worked out and just encourage any other restaurants that you'd like to see have home delivery," said Jicinsky.
Newswatch 12 tagged along with one of the delivery drivers.
"I'm thoroughly enjoying myself right now," said Delivrize delivery driver Kevin Beckman.
He really likes how CTs deli and many other businesses can bring more options to people wherever they are.
"They're too busy to do anything, or they're working and can't get away from their work schedule, so they're hungry for lunch or dinner, they can order right from the app," said Beckman.
"Everyone's going to deliver, I mean you can have your groceries delivered, you can have Amazon [which] delivers everything, so food makes much more sense too," said Jicinsky.
"Delivrize" is working on getting more restaurants on board. Right now, it has CT's Deli, Bucketheads, Pizza Haven, and The Fun Factory.
