Riverworks Marketing Develops Website For Easy Ordering Of To-Go Food From Local Restaurants

Wednesday, April 22, 2020

Riverworks Marketing, a local full-service marketing agency, saw a need for a consolidated list of area restaurants and sought to meet it. The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed the way we all go about our daily lives, and it’s changed the landscape of the local economy just as drastically. While working to adjust the way they serve their local restaurant clients, the Riverworks team had an idea for a website that would work to both bolster the efforts of local eateries during these uncertain times, and provide an ultra navigable list of restaurants currently offering delivery and curbside services to the Chattanooga community.

“There have been quite a few lists of local restaurants with varying degrees of service information being shared," said Riverworks Account Manager Rachel Ward. "Publication dates have timed out, things have changed, and sourcing this info has been hard to keep up with. Separately, none of these lists were ever intended to serve as a primary source for restaurant offerings during this pandemic, so their user interfaces were not designed with this particular purpose in mind."

In response to this issue, the Riverworks creative team created a website called Easy Eats To Go, showcasing the Chattanooga area restaurants that are currently open for business, offering to-go food and beverage in one capacity or another. This user-friendly, intuitive site shares listings for local restaurants, menus, contact information, and pick up/delivery options. Listings are easily navigable with options to search either by cuisine type or area of town. 

Riverworks hopes this site will help drive more traffic to local businesses within the hospitality industry as they try to navigate this new landscape, while also making it easier for community members to shop small and eat local, while keeping these establishments afloat when their doors must remain closed.

“We hope that this contribution to the Chattanooga community will aid in the efforts of these small business owners," said Riverworks Co-Owner Jackie Errico. "We know every bit of exposure they can get is critical right now, and we hope Easy Eats To Go will give Chattanoogans an easy interface to check out who is up and running, and how they can support them." 

Restaurant listings are free and all local restaurant owners currently open for business are encouraged to submit their listing information via the form on the site found at easyeatstogo.com
