New Business Delivers Local Food Favorites
For Augustans craving their favorite dishes from local eateries like Southbound Smokehouse and Twisted Burrito, it’s usually a requirement to get out of the house. That’s not the case anymore.
Augusta To Go is up and running in the CSRA, which means Augustans can now have meals from local food favorites delivered to their doorstep.
Augusta To Go currently delivers meals from 22 restaurant locations of Southbound Smokehouse, Mellow Mushroom, Tin Lizzy’s, Jersey Mike’s, Crab King, Firehouse Subs, Ephesus Greek and Turkish Restaurant, New Ming Wah and Twisted Burrito.
Trevor Dow, co-owner of Augusta To Go, said that he and co-owner Lindsey Teague have also secured deals with The Hive, Bee’s Knees and Pita Pit and will be taking orders for delivery from those establishments by Nov. 27.
Dow and Teague said there is no limit to the number of local restaurants that they want to work with.
“We see it as a really positive, symbiotic relationship with the community and the restaurant owners,” Teague said.
The service costs $3.99 for delivery up to four miles from one of the restaurants listed on Augusta To Go’s website and app (also called Augusta To Go). Each added mile costs $0.50. Customers get a free first delivery if they use the coupon code TRYUS.
Dow said deliveries usually take 25-45 minutes for lunch and 30-60 minutes for dinner.
The entrepreneurial duo has gotten positive feedback on their business so far, both from restaurant owners and customers. They said one customer has used the service around 30 times.
More than half the orders that Augusta To Go has received have come from the mobile app.
Dow and Teague are also looking to add more drivers to their pool as they expand the business. Interested individuals can contact Augusta To Go via their website (augustatogo.com), Facebook or by calling (706) 414-8033.
