Bite Local is growing through a fantastic franchise system

Bite Local is the new App on the block, taking on the big mobile food take away/delivery apps. We are fully Australian owned and operated and are all about supporting local. Consumers want to support local restaurants but they also want a great customer experience when ordering/receiving food. If you love building relationships, you like a fast past work environment where you are wearing many hats, and you want full autonomy of running your own business (with full support) then Bite Local may well be for you.

We love our model and we feel this would suit first time franchisees. We will do everything possible to support our franchisees and make them successful.

BITE LOCAL - What’s on offer

Are you motivated? Are you good with people? Ever wanted to run your own business but didn’t know where to start? Do you want to run a business that helps people, gives back to the community, and can make money at the same time? Then Bite Local may well be perfect for you.

You run your own business within a larger business, with most of the leg work already done for you.

Bite Local is basically an online food ordering offering and a mobile app for the hospitality industry. It’s a marketplace for restaurants, café’s, (and moving into mobile food vans such as food trucks, coffee vans, and ice cream vans.) We want to offer both restaurants and consumers an alternative to the big tech companies that charge HUGE fees. Some charge up to 35% of orders whereas our fees are much lower.

We offer more than just low fees.

Our unique selling proposition is strong!

Our offering is very attractive to restaurant owners through low fees, one on one local relationship, local drives, and full reporting and customer data. Bite Local is also attractive to consumers as they want the convenience of online ordering and delivery but want to support local at the same time. Finally, it’s attractive as a franchise business, as even on our small fees, good money can still be made, for minimal outlay. Strong relationships and old-fashioned sweat can bring you success!

    Do you charge restaurants a % like other food ordering platforms?
