April 09, 2020
CHICAGO – April 9, 2020: Foodtech startup 2ndKitchen, known for helping businesses such as bars, breweries, and hotels serve food without the hassle of operating a kitchen, has launched a new product – 2ndKitchen 2Go.
How 2ndKitchen 2Go Provides Immediate Help to Breweries Struggling to Survive Through COVID-19
2Go is an online ordering portal for breweries, distilleries, & wineries struggling from COVID-19 to sell alcohol online and offer contactless pickup & delivery fulfillment for online orders – and it’s 100% free to use.
“With taprooms closed due to COVID-19, brewery sales on average have dropped 68%, with 62% of brewery owners saying they will be forced to shut down permanently if trends continue for three months according to a recent survey from the Brewers Association,” said Nick Anastasiades, CEO & co-founder of 2ndKitchen. He added, “2ndKitchen 2Go provides brewery owners a new revenue channel to sell beer through safe, contactless pickup & delivery orders – and it’s 100% free for breweries to use.”
Import Items from Untapped and Drive Sales Through Your E-Commerce Store
2Go allows breweries to build an online portal that lists out all of their taproom’s products. Creating the online store is easy, as breweries can import their menu directly from their Untappd profile. Breweries then are encouraged to promote their ordering menu across their website, social media, email lists, Yelp, Google My Business, and more to drive sales.
2Go Supports Contactless Pickup, Self-Delivery, and 3rd-Party Delivery for Safe Transactions
One of the most important features of 2Go is that it supports all fulfillment types out of the box. Partners can choose between safe contactless QR-based pickups, self-delivery, or 3rd party delivery through APIs with leading couriers. 2Go also has a donation function embedded in the service.
It's 100% Free for Breweries Struggling Through COVID-19
2ndKitchen does not plan to charge for this service in the foreseeable future and it will remain 100% free with no commitment and no credit cards required during the COVID-19 crisis.
Since launching on March 30th, breweries across the nation are already driving significant online sales through 2Go. Partners include Chicago’s Midwest Coast Brewing, Brooklyn’s Wild East Brewing, Portland’s U-Brew & Unicorn Brewing, Michigan’s Unity Vibration, and hundreds more with new taprooms joining every day as they adjust to the COVID-19 circumstances.
