Watch as the Re-turnz App is cited in a recent video by national media network AJ+, taking an in-depth look at how mainstream delivery apps are potentially hurting independent restaurants with their pricing models during the COVID-19 era.
Yara Elmjouie of AJ+ breaks down how app users, restaurants, and drivers have been affected during the coronavirus pandemic, and how Kristina Zhao of San Antonio, TX’s Sichuan House, has utilized the Re-turnz App as a delivery alternative to primary delivery apps.
The piece titled, Why Deliver Apps are Actually Hurting Restaurants, mentions Re-turnz at the 5:50 mark. The Re-turnz App team appreciates AJ+ and Yara taking a deep dive into how some primary delivery apps are hurting local economies and small business owners with outmoded pricing models in the COVID-19 context.
In collaboration with Sichuan House-owner, Kristina Zhao, we have utilized our tech platform and logistics network for a restaurant-focused model. The Re-turnz platform allows the restaurateur (and retailers) to determine their delivery fares, remove invasive/costly delivery apps, and reduce sales cannibalization by bringing delivery in-house. As well, furloughed employees can act as independent contractor drivers within Re-turnz, centralizing driver compensation within the business network.
Re-turnz specializes in enhancing the online experience of returning or sending items to the postal store, a universal hassle thought to be inherent in the eCommerce industry. With that said, we are committed to providing our logistics platform to small businesses looking to overcome the COVID-19 era.
