MANSFIELD -- An up-and-coming, locally-owned, food-delivery business now offers its services throughout Mansfield.
Grub2You expanded partially into the city last November and has since expanded its coverage area to include places like City Garden Cafe and Swavory in downtown Mansfield.
"It's not a new concept, but it's new to the area. It's food delivery for restaurants that don't typically offer food delivery," said owner Kyle Miller, of Bellville.
The business delivers from places like Buck's Bar and Grill and The Local at 97 in Lexington, Chipotle and TGI Fridays in Ontario, Bistro 217 and Granny's Kitchen in Galion and a few spots in Crestline and Bucyrus, too. A complete list is available at grub2youllc.com.
Delivery costs $4.99 for drop-off locations within a five-mile radius of the selected restaurant and an additional 50 cents per mile for up to 15 miles.
"We're connecting areas that may not normally be connected ... So if you live in Crestline and you wanted to have food delivered to you, you probably wouldn't have gone all the way to Galion to eat at the Bistro, but now we'll bring the Bistro to Crestline," Miller said.
Grub2You delivers lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday and dinner from 5 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Grub2You schedules its drivers so that there's always someone available to deliver food during operating hours. He explained, this allows the business to offer a "big city amenity" consistently.
Grub2You started offering its services in Galion last August, where his business partner Kelly Gibson resides. The business expanded into other areas throughout the fall. It delivered up to Trimble Road in Mansfield as of last November and now includes other Mansfield area restaurants.
At this point, Miller said, the biggest barrier to further expansion is lack of drivers. He urged interested individuals to apply online.
To order through Grub2You, Android users can download the "Grub2You" app and others can visit www.grub2youllc.com. Eventually, Miller would like to have an Apple app, too.
