Convenient food ordering service start-up in Costa Rica chews over Central American expansion.
Costa Rica News – Juanlotrae.com, the first comprehensive online food ordering service in Costa Rica, brings convenience to food-lovers and profits to restaurants by connecting them through an advanced online platform supported by a multilingual call center, a localized delivery fleet, customer service, and useful features that benefit both diners and business owners.
Until now, food ordering and delivery in Costa Rica has been a highly fragmented affair that only a few restaurants have ventured to offer, even as demand has increased. “Express” service, as home delivery is known in Costa Rica, is a burgeoning industry thanks to the prosperity and upward mobility currently sweeping the nation. Juanlotrae.com has carefully studied these consumer trends to provide a smart and convenient solution.
Juanlotrae.com allows diners to use their computers, tablets or smartphones to have delicious food from their favorite restaurants delivered right to their home or office. It is a seamless platform for both diners and restaurants in the sense that it allows credit card payments to be made with information saved in customer profiles that automatically store important order information like delivery addresses, contact information, meal preferences, and more.
Information securely stored by Juanlotrae.com is payment card industry (PCI) compliant, and the company’s call center is staffed by friendly English and Spanish customer service agents.
The first businesses taking advantage of Juanlotrae.com and its digital platform are staples of home delivery: mexican, pizza and sushi places that deliver in areas of Escazu, Santa Ana and San Jose. Restaurants in the San Jose metropolitan area and around the Central Valley, like Azafran, Foogo and Sushi Kai, are quickly signing up. Delivery is now available in the cities of Cartago and Heredia, and expansion in the rest of the country is forthcoming.
Juanlotrae.com is a very strategic venture that involves digital banking, marketing agencies, and major media outlets. Food delivery is just the beginning; the company plans to improve upon the express delivery service business model in Costa Rica by offering different items and delivering them anywhere in the country. This is a strategy that can be expanded to the rest of Central America thanks to the rapid growth of smartphone and tablet use in the region.
The global take-out and home delivery industry is booming thanks to advanced online and mobile technologies. This is a billion dollar industry where global players like Delivery Hero, Just Eat and GrubHub are expanding and getting significant venture funding.
Costa Rica is a market ripe for consumer services that make life not only easier but also more fun, and Juanlotrae.com is well positioned to meet this demand. Juanlotrae.com’s marketing build’s on “Juan”, everyone’s helpful friend.
Based in Costa Rica, Juanlotrae.com is a business venture that enjoys the support of various partners and stakeholders; including the prestigious Grupo Garnier –a marketing and PR giant with a rich history dating back to the founding of the first formal advertising agency in Central America.
Juanlotrae.com is Costa Rica’s premier online food ordering platform, and to this extent the company intends to pursue other profitable home delivery options.
