I have no problem taking one for the team, so to speak, and after seeing all the ads on TV for the Skip The Dishes APP it was time to try it out for myself.
The concept is simple:
First you install the APP on your phone and then you will be provided with a list of local options for food delivery. Select what you want to order from the list of available restaurants, pay online and the driver shows up with your order. You can even include the tip into your purchase at the time of the transaction.
Now, normally you can primarily order pizza, pasta, and Chinese food by delivery but Skip The Dishes is different as it provides users with with a broader selection of places to order from. You can get food from a number of local businesses including: Double Decker Tavern, Pita Pit, Fraser Sneath Coffee, Montana’s, Taco Time, A & W, The Dock, Smitty’s, Little Italy, Pita Pit, and KFC and various others.
The true beauty of this service, and APP, is the ability to track track your driver and where he is in the city of Brandon (kind of like using UBER).
Scott Glennie, a former Brandon Wheat King and Dallas Stars first-round draft pick, said he used Skip the Dishes several times in Winnipeg and found the service outstanding. “It is my favorite APP to use because I can get almost any type of food I want…I would use it before Manitoba Moose pre-game meals last year”.
Skip The Dishes was created by a Saskatoon company and sold recently for 110 million dollars.
