You may not be able to dine-in at your favourite Canberra restaurants at the moment, but that doesn’t mean you have to do without thanks to contactless delivery through Canberra’s own food delivery app, Easi.

Easi Canberra co-owner Jack Wang, a Tuggeranong boy, says locally owned and developed app Easi is helping local businesses survive in the new lockdown environment.

“We have a wide range of local Canberra restaurants signed up,” Jack told Region Media, “and there’s been a surge in the number of restaurants signing up with us as well as increased demand from customers.

“We have your usual takeaways, but we also have a range of premium dining experiences on the app.

“We’re 10 per cent cheaper than our competitors, which means more money goes to the restaurant, which means more local businesses survive in the Canberra hospitality sector,” he said.

Easi’s online app makes ordering and payment simple for both restaurants and customers, and the delivery can be contactless. Customers can leave instructions for their delivery partners in the app for where the food should be placed for contactless delivery.

Delivery partners have been trained in contactless delivery and will set down your food order 3 metres from your door where safe or set the food down as instructed by you in the app, and call you on the contact number you designate so you can come out and receive your order. The delivery partner will stay with your food order until you are contacted, and then move away once you are ready to collect it.

This will help, says Jack, to keep all Canberrans safe, and enable restaurants to continue to trade, keeping local Canberrans in work.

“Some restaurants will have their own delivery service, but they may not be able to deliver outside a local area, or outside the ACT,” said Jack. “We can offer them the opportunity to be able to deliver all over Canberra and the surrounding region, to places near Canberra such as Queanbeyan, but they can maintain their own local deliveries to keep their staff going,” he said.

Easi can deliver to within a 50 km radius of any restaurant, meaning customers in Queanbeyan and the surrounding Canberra region can get takeaway deliveries through the app. The Easi app also offers bonuses for customers, such as $10 off for your first five orders.

To order contactless delivery through Easi, download the app from Google Play or the App Store.
