Vancouver, BC, CANADA, July 20, 2015– Fatburger Canada is excited to announce delivery in select markets in Canada through a partnership with SkipTheDishes, an on-demand delivery network. Fatburger delivery will be initially available in 12 different locations in major cities across Western Canada beginning today through the SkipTheDishes iOS App, Android App, or website.
“We’re pleased to finally offer Canadians their favourites like the Double Kingburger and crispy skin-on fries straight to their home or office,” said Fatburger Director of Marketing Tracy Frazer. “Fatburger is known for its devoted fans and ‘cult-like’ following, and we’re excited to offer our guests a new way to get their Fatburger fix. Our customers have been asking for delivery for quite some time – so we delivered.”
Fatburger, a 45 location (and growing!) premium burger chain founded in 1952, is known for their fresh, never frozen, cooked-to-order burgers and hand-scooped, real ice cream shakes. The national partnership with SkipTheDishes is the first of any burger chain in Canada to offer delivery. The delivery service is available in select locations in Vancouver, Burnaby, Edmonton, and Calgary, with rollout to other major Canadian cities to follow.
SkipTheDishes, a Winnipeg-based company, uses proprietary logistics-based algorithms to connect Consumers and Food Couriers with Restaurants like Fatburger. Their proprietary software provides much needed quality and transparency on the end-to-end delivery process, including live GPS Tracking of the food.
“We’re proud to partner with an innovative Canadian tech company such as SkipTheDishes and leverage their technology to provide a superior customer experience,” stated Steve Smith, Senior Director of Operations at Fatburger. “Fatburger has always been known for our unique marketing style, gourmet burgers and now Buffalo’s™ World Famous chicken tenders, and we want to continue delighting customers not just in the store, but out of the store, too.”
Customers type in their address on the SkipTheDishes App or website to see if they fall within a Fatburger delivery area, browse the menu, and order directly online. Once an order has been placed, the customer receives live order updates and real-time GPS tracking of their food.
“Fatburger is a very popular Western Canadian burger chain – and entering into this national partnership today validates the fundamental shift in the way Canadian’s value not only convenience, but high quality food to their doors,” says Andrew Chau, Co-Founder at SkipTheDishes. “With our Apps, we’re able to offer wider delivery options to consumers, while our restaurant partners can focus on doing what they do best – making great food”.
