CHIRINGA MAKES THE MOVE TO TAKE-OUT AND CURBSIDE PICK UP ONLY

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 3/19/20

From Dine-In to Take Out, Guests Can Still Enjoy Their Surf-Side Favorites

Based on the recommendations of the CDC and the concerns for the health of the community, CHIRINGA has suspended dine-in services and has implemented a strict take-out and curbside pick up policy until further notice. In order to protect the safety of their patrons and the internal team, guests can dive into their surf-side favorites by ordering from their extensive online ordering system, calling into the restaurant or by ordering from the outdoor Fly Up Window located on the Town Green during business hours. Allowing guests to take a staycation, CHIRINGA’s full menu will be available and includes whole grain bowls, dips, salads, sandwiches, tacos and plantains, available with fresh fish packed with Omega 3’s and clean proteins, along with freshly squeezed juices overflowing with Vitamin C. Guests 21 and up can also order specialty cocktails, craft beers and full-bodied wines at the Fly Up Window to enjoy on the Town Green. When completing the order online, guests can specify if they would prefer to pick up their order from the Fly Up Window or curbside. When placing an order for curbside, guests will need to describe the make, model and color of the car picking up the order to ensure prompt delivery. To dive into CHIRINGA’s online ordering system, visit www.chiringa.com and click the “Order Online” icon located at the top of the page. CHIRINGA is very grateful for their loyal patrons that continue to dine at their restaurant and hopes everyone is staying safe. For more information, visit www.chiringa.com or call 770.802.8940.

GETTABITE APP LAUNCH TO-GO FEATURE!

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 3/18/20

GettaBite App Pivots To Launch A New Feature
to Aid Atlanta Restaurants Amidst COVID-19 outbreak
Founders Evan Walker and Rain Li of the popular GettaBite app that was launched at the start of 2020, features thousands of Atlanta-area food deals each week. The team of two have pivoted the use of the free app to feature GettaBite To-Go! It’s the same app, but with a new option to keep Atlanta restaurant guests well-informed about which restaurants and food vendors are offering pick-up and delivery during this current time.
GettaBite To-Go! is offered to restaurants for free for a limited time. This is in an effort to help the Atlanta service industry get word out which is especially beneficial for those small business owners without public relations or marketing support.
The GettaBite duo is focused on helping those that have helped them. GettaBite Founder, Evan Walker, “We want to help get word out for restaurants and push sales for their industry in this downward market. We want to partner with Atlanta restaurants so we can help communicate to their guests which restaurants are open, which ones have shifted to take-out and delivery, and what people can expect to order from local restaurants at this time. Let’s keep Atlanta restaurants and diners connected!”
Users can expect the app to provide a self-guided experience. The deal feed will show several hours of deal information and pick-up/delivery information from surrounding restaurants in real time. Currently, GettaBite features hundreds of Atlanta restaurants and offers over 1,000 deals every week from popular names such as Hawkers Asian Street Fare, Hampton & Hudson, El Super Pan, Moe’s Southwest Grill, La Hacienda, Real Tacos, Fontaine’s Oyster House, Midtown Bowl, and many more with new restaurants added daily. The app is also a way for users to discover new restaurants by area and learn about new dishes in addition to the new featured launched today.
How It Works
Restaurants can email GettaBite at contact@gettabiteapp.com or send in their pick-up/delivery offering through the appitselfand GettaBite will post the offerings on the app for hungry Atlantans to see at no charge to the restaurant.
Evan Walker shared, “We founded GettaBite on the idea that restaurants and their diners need a strong communication channel. With many cities closing restaurants and only allowing take-out or delivery, we want to make sure communication between restaurants and their customers isn’t lost.”
Creators Evan Walker and Rain Li launched GettaBite in the summer of 2019. While studying at Auburn University, this young, entrepreneurial team felt the restaurant market lacked a focused food discovery tool. Students and younger generations wanted to know where to go to eat for the biggest bang for their buck. GettaBite is primarily a database of deals at a user’s fingertips. For restaurants, GettaBite is a free way to communicate deals and offerings quickly with a younger audience. The app is more than a food discovery app, it’s the missing link the market craves. GettaBite provides an affordable way to share an eating experience that is cultural and social with a younger generation.
  • Download on any smart phone at the App Store for free
  • GettaBite currently has a 5 out of 5 rating
  • Approaching 6,000 registered users
  • 300,000+ total deal views every month
  • 1,000+ restaurant deals featured weekly
