Tony Marchuk and Olivier Corizzi, co-owners of the Sarasota-based digital marketing agency Avenue Media, recently launched TakeoutSRQ, a new initiative designed to help support local restaurants. TakeoutSRQ’s free-of-charge platform encourages consumers to support their favorite spots by directly contacting eateries for local delivery rather than using a third-party company, eliminating additional fees for those ordering and allowing the restaurant to receive more profit.
The online resource provides an up-to-date listing of eateries in Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice, North Port and Lakewood Ranch currently offering takeout and delivery in the community. TakeoutSRQ currently has more than 50 eateries in its online system and is actively adding more. Prospective customers are able to narrow down the listing by desired cuisine, and a selection of choices will appear along with information on the restaurant’s menu, operating hours and telephone number.
