Inspired to do something for their customers and restaurant partners, Restaurant.com CEO Ketan Thakker is glad to be able to give back to the community through the Feed It Forward program. Feed It Forward is a way of helping both individuals and businesses, letting diners continue to support their local restaurants by ordering for takeout and delivery and making a difficult time a little more delicious. Restaurants never pay any fees when they partner with Restaurant.com, and now when they need business more than ever, all money spent with the restaurants will continue to stay with the restaurants.
“We’re grateful to be in a position where our business can help give back to the people and communities that have supported us for so long,” says Thakker. “We hope that Feed It Forward will motivate everyone to share the gift and comfort of a meal during this time of uncertainty.”
In the past, 500,000 people participated in the Restaurant.com Feed It Forward program and gifted nearly $75,000,000 in Restaurant.com eGift Cards for others to enjoy, ultimately filling over 625,000 restaurant tables!
