In response to the Covid-19 pandemic the City of Battle Creek’s Small Business Development Office with assistance from corePHP, launched the communities very own online and mobile food-ordering marketplace. Eatsbc.com is a dynamic prepared food directory for the community. Many of our prepared food operators were not set up for delivery or online sales and the fees charged by alternative platforms were costly which raised prices and cost to the customer and businesses significantly.
The City’s team quickly assembled a community platform to advance the online capabilities and exposure of our local businesses. Food service establishments can register with EatsBC, create an account, login, enter their menu, and specify if they are dine-in, pick-up and/or delivery. The site and app can take a customer’s order and accept payment, then send the order to the restaurant.
Our goal was to provide a low cost online presence and point of sales gateway, to increase exposure and drive as much business as is possible to the local food producers. Similar services have a very large fees which cut into the business profitability. EatsBC is an affordable community platform.
