Our Team

Meal delivery will be a $180 billion global market by 2024. Tech companies have raided this space and taken restaurants' customers and profits, but we believe technology should serve restaurants - instead of restaurants serving tech companies. Dine.Direct gives restaurants the tech and community they need to win back their customers and money.

Restaurant DINERS of the world, unite! INVEST IN THE FUTURE OF FOOD DELIVERY

Dine.Direct is the first takeout and delivery company built to be owned by, DINERS. We're on a mission to take down the titans of Silicon Valley and to give restaurants & their guests a seat at the table — and a stake in the outcome.

Why? Because right now, restaurants aren’t getting a fair deal. If the current industry doesn’t change, third-party online ordering & delivery companies will kill restaurants out-right.   

We founded Dine.Direct because we saw a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reshape the future of online ordering and delivery. Our long-term goal is to unite 1 million Diners, creating a massive grassroots customer base — a Community — that we believe could not only save restaurants but help them thrive, long into the future.

Help restaurants ditch the expensive food apps

With the use of big food apps, restaurants have lost control of the food delivery transactions, damaging their reputation, guest loyalty & profits.

We believe restaurants that harness technology to deliver a better guest experience, directly, will be prosperous now and in the future. But they need a little help. Alongside technology, they need community. A community that can empower them to reach out to new restaurant guests and reliable delivery solutions.

With Dine.Direct, restaurants are in control of each food delivery transaction. 

Protecting their reputation, nurturing relationships with their customers & driving more profits.

    Our solution 

    We offer, a multi-sided platform for online ordering and delivery, that leverages loyalty to the things customers care about & directly connects customers with restaurants. 

    Dine.Direct takes a small fee (max of $1) per order processed on the platform. In the future, restaurants will be able to opt in to pay an extra fee to attract new customers.

    Dine.Direct rewards community, to grow community 

    Dine.Direct is building a low-cost footprint company. Instead of paying a bunch of executive salaries, we are bringing financial rewards to people who are committed to ensuring restaurants can thrive. We are serious about financial inclusion and have allocated about 30% of the company to this program. Rewards are shared via points. Points give members a stake in any financial success we have.

    Examples of contributions to the mission include:

      • Restaurant Founders who help us establish a critical mass of restaurants in a new location or give feedback on new technologies before release.
      • Ambassadors who refer other restaurants to our products.
      • Community champions, who help other restaurants get set up, trained and operational.
      • Portal publishers, who promote great restaurants with their existing audiences

      And many more...

    We believe broad financial inclusion will make a bigger pie, faster - a delicious pie we can all enjoy together.
