Grubhub spending $30M to help independent restaurants
Grubhub is spending $30 million to support 100,000 independent restaurants in the face of the COVID-19 outbreak, according to a spokesman.
Grubhub said each restaurant will receive $250 that will allow them to offer $10 discounts off any order of $30 or more. Grubhub estimated that the funding could help generate about $100 million in restaurant sales.
Thus far, Grubhub said restaurants participating in its current promotions during the crisis have seen sales jump 30%.
Grubhub said it was also teaming with Verizon Business to feed frontline healthcare workers at six hospitals in New York City.
