Restaurant & food truck guide

Why use Gopher?

  1. Gopher doesn’t charge restaurants or food trucks… for ANYTHING!
  2. Meals are purchased directly from the Restaurant App, Online Portal, or by calling the restaurant to place the order. (So margins are protected, and pricing is consistent).
  3. Meals are delivered faster!
  4. The local Gopher delivering the meal makes more money on a per-job basis than any of the other third party delivery services.

Our goal

Our goal is to provide you with a trustworthy local delivery option, using members of the community to keep your business thriving.

What is the problem?

  • 3rd party delivery services are too expensive.
  • 3rd party services eat into restaurant profit margins.
  • 3rd party services force users to pay more in fees and less in tips.

Our solution!

Our users are empowered. They set the price for the food delivery. Restaurants are the sole beneficiary of every order, placed directly through you. Our Gophers are paid with full transparency, immediately after every completed delivery.

How Gopher works


A to-go order is placed at your business.

Via phone, online, or through your store app.


A request is made and broadcast to pick up food at your restaurant.


A Gopher accepts the request and heads to pick up the food.


Food is ready and picked up by a Gopher.


Food is delivered by the Gopher and customer is HAPPY!

Gophers only take one request at a time, so getting your food to the customer fresh and fast is their top priority!

Now that the Gopher is on their way, the order is placed directly from the restaurant and/or food truck.

This is why orders are delivered faster, allowing customers to receive their food fresh!

This is also how restaurants protect their margins with carry out orders!
