In France, they have several services that offer to deliver food to your favorite restaurants :

-Others…

Choose between your favorite dish, and enjoy ! Those kind of services are fast, reliable and above all affordable !

3. For the lovers of bistros

Another kind of platform for another target : bistrots lovers.

The first one, “j’aime mon bistrot“, created before “aide-aux-restaurateurs”, allows you to buy vouchers to consume at your favorite bistro as soon as it reopens. But you can use this platform for bistrots but also for fast foods, the term “bistrot” is large in that case.

If you want to make a donation, you have first to search an establishment between 5.200 others in the map. The sum that you will spend will vary between 1,5€ to 50€, will constitue a pot, with a small bonus, to be spent at the bar in question as soon as it reopens.

After 10 days of launch, 7.700 pre-order for a total of 530.000€ were passed on the website, nearly 100€ per establishment.

4. Post a review !

Is a fast and simple way to support your favorite restaurant. Depending the establishment, you can write a review in their website, also on social network, or on specialised restaurant platform, such as :

TheFork

TripAdvisor

5. “aide-aux-restaurateurs.fr”

Launched in the middle of April, this platform consist to compile all open establishments in a digital directory. It allows to put in relation clients and open restaurants. No fee for anyone !

“We realised that a lot of restaurants were reopening but customers didn’t know” says Pablo Castiel Gazier, co-founder of the platform and of CentralApp, an inventory management app dedicated to restaurants, at the origins of the initiative.
