SARASOTA, Fla. – Tony Marchuk and Olivier Corizzi, co-owners of the Sarasota-based digital marketing agency Avenue Media, recently launched TakeoutSRQ, a new initiative in Sarasota designed to help support local restaurants.
TakeoutSRQ’s free-of-charge platform encourages consumers to support their favorite spots by directly contacting eateries for local delivery rather than using a third-party company, eliminating additional fees for those ordering and allowing the restaurant to receive more profit.
The online resource provides an up-to-date listing of places in Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice, North Port and Lakewood Ranch currently offering takeout and delivery in the community. TakeoutSRQ currently has more than 50 eateries in their online system and are actively adding more.
“Nationwide, we’re going through a really difficult time,” said Marchuk, co-owner of TakeoutSRQ. “What is happening to our local economy is absolutely heartbreaking. We wanted to create a way to give back to our community and support our local home-grown restaurants by spreading the word about what’s available for takeout and delivery services.”
Prospective customers are able to narrow down the listing by desired cuisine, and a selection of choices will appear along with information on the restaurant’s menu, operating hours and telephone number.
Companies interested in being added to the complimentary online list can visit TakeoutSRQ.com/new or email email@example.com.
“Thousands of employees and their families are depending on consumers like us to support the places they work,” said Corizzi, co-owner of TakeoutSRQ. “In this trying time, we need to do whatever we can to help restaurants struggling to survive.”
