A NEW food app offering takeaway menus from restaurants across the Isle of Wight has been launched.

Island businessmen Kevin Barton and Mark Stafford, who created and launched the Uber-style taxi app, Go Taxi, last December, have now introduced the Go Eats App to the brand’s portfolio.

Whether it’s something new from a top local restaurant or a regular takeaway favourite, Go Eats offers a choice of menus to suit all tastes and types of cuisines.

A second app, Go Delivery, has also been launched to provide an Islandwide doorstep delivery service with more than 50 drivers already delivering more than 5,000 items in the first month.

“We want to offer Islanders a simple, convenient and reliable food ordering and delivery service, and we believe Go Eats gives us that,” said Kevin.

“There is a gap on the Island for an app like this and we want to help fill those hungry bellies.

“We have some fantastic menus available and more outlets are joining us all the time.

“We already have more than 3,000 people using the app and the early weeks have seen huge customer demand and very positive feedback.

“We are now ready to take the next step and make Go Eats the place to go for takeaways on the Island.”

Any restaurant or food business keen to be involved with Go Eats can set up for free, within 24 hours.

Fumo33, Stotesbury's, Subway, Tamarind and Ryde Thai are among those already using the app to offer their menus. They all report a huge increase in demand for delivery.

Meli Salek, owner of Stotesbury’s, said the app has boosted trade.

“It was an easy decision to team up with Go Eats and in just a few weeks, we have already seen the benefits of providing online ordering, payment and home delivery and more convenience for our customers,” she said.
