Last week, counties across the Bay Area ordered residents to shelter in place to help mitigate the advancement of the novel coronavirus that is rapidly spreading across the region. With this order came the mandatory closure of all non-essential businesses and institutions, such as libraries, gyms, bars, and nightclubs. Restaurants are currently permitted to provide take-out and delivery services only, and this is taking a toll on local establishments that rely on dine-in customers for the majority of their income.
We want to help these restaurants stay afloat during this uncertain time. That’s why we’ve decided to waive all fees for restaurants who sign up for our meal-ordering platform, which will allow coffee shops, diners, and other local eateries to quickly accept orders for pickup. Fees will be waived for new registrants for the remainder of the year.
Additionally, merchants can now add a gift card product onto the Tyme platform and sell gift cards directly on our app to customers that want to support them during these trying times. Again, there will be no fee for this service. This is our way of giving back and helping restaurateurs propel business for the rest of 2020 without thinking about any additional costs.
This is a challenging time for all of us, and as a young startup, we’re experiencing the impact ourselves. However, we believe that by making sacrifices and working together, we can help provide these businesses with the boost they need.
Stay safe, wash your hands, and remember to support your local businesses. We’ll get through this together.
