Restaurants on the Run
For nearly two decades, Restaurants on the Run has streamlined the food-ordering process for large groups including parties and corporate meetings, successfully facilitating more than three million orders. Their directory includes more than 1,300 menus from well-known eateries, such as California Pizza Kitchen and Au Bon Pain. Friendly customer-service agents welcome clients both online and over the phone, and can make recommendations for those unsure of what to order. Alternatively, diners can also take the ordering process into their own hands with the Group Order feature, which allows them to share a menu with others via email. Once everyone chooses their items and the order is placed, customers sit back and wait for the food to arrive. Each meal comes labeled with individual names, allowing for easier distribution than trying to psychically identify wrapped-up meals. For every dollar spent, customers accumulate free rewards points to their online account that can be cashed in for gift certificates, iPods, and vacation packages.
