When You Just Don’t Feel Like Cooking
Pre-packaged meal services are the latest trend in the foodservice industry, and for good reason. With the COVID-19 pandemic still raging, people are doing their best to avoid having to brave local markets or dine out. Instead, more and more are opting to have a healthy, ready-to-eat meal waiting for them at a contactless pickup location.
To meet increasing demand, Cheetah has recently launched the “Restaurant Picks” program. Besides ordering food supplies at wholesale prices, customers can now enjoy ready-made and pre-packaged meals prepared by their favorite San Francisco restaurants, delivered to a convenient pickup location.
Whether you’re looking for an easy yet healthy way of keeping your fridges stocked or simply trying to get out of doing the dishes, this app is for you.
What’s on the Menu?
Gone are the days of uninspired, unhealthy microwave meals. Just because you don’t have the time or will to cut, prep, cook and clean, doesn’t mean you or your family can’t enjoy a hearty, health-conscious dinner or lunch.
Restaurant Picks offers a wide selection of chef-prepared options for single servings and full meals. The curated menus include veggie, gluten-free, diabetic-friendly and many other options, keeping both nutrition and taste in mind. All meals are fully prepared and delivered fresh and ready to eat in less than 10 minutes.
When hungry, simply visit the app to find your Bay Area favorites:
Curry Up Now offers three family-style Indian meals
La Mediterranee offers slow-baked pomegranate chicken, baba ghanoush and djajiki
Tartine Bakery offers cookie dough and scone dough to bake at home
Zero Zero SF offers flash-frozen handmade pizzas to be eaten fresh from the oven
How it Works
Download the app to choose from over 300 healthy and family-friendly food options.
Place a grocery or meal order for pickup at one of four contactless pickup locations in the Bay Area:
SF – SOMA
After placing your order, you will receive a confirmation text. Your items will be ready for pickup the next day. To ensure the safety of both employees and customers, simply arrive at the safe drive-through pickup location, pop open your truck and drive away with your food safely stowed.
Support Local Restaurants
Restaurant Picks isn’t only about making healthy, delicious food available to everyone. As a no-cost revenue stream program, it’s also about keeping restaurants afloat during these uncertain times.
According to the California Restaurant Association (CRA), the health crisis has forced an estimated 30% of restaurants in California to close. This number could reach as high as 50% in San Francisco, says the Golden Gate Restaurant Association (GGRA).
In what seems to be the new normal going forward, many restaurants have shifted their focus to takeout and delivery services. But with mainstream delivery apps charging 20-30% per order, restaurants are barely making ends meet. And although they are gradually reopening their doors, the new health guidelines and diners’ fears about eating out are still preventing local businesses from getting back on track.
To help restaurant owners boost sales and explore new revenue streams, Cheetah’s no-commission fees service allows restaurants to sell fully prepared to-go meals or specialty items through the app’s marketplace. To show your support, simply browse through hundreds of small businesses and order a delicious meal from a local restaurant.
