Caviar Expands Online Food Order and Delivery Service for Top-Rated Restaurants in Chicago

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 01, 2014

Today Caviar announced it has expanded its leading online food order and delivery service for top-rated Chicago restaurants. Caviar fills a critical void for consumers and restaurants by providing the easiest, fastest way to order the best-tasting food online for delivery to homes or businesses.

Working only with the best local establishments, Caviar provides restaurants with a new revenue source and comprehensive delivery infrastructure, including order management, quality control, logistics and its own, on-call drivers. Deliveries cost $ 9.99 per order for any number of menu items. In Chicago, Caviar is providing free deliveries until mid-July, making it even easier to order from area-favorites such as Smalls and La Sirena Clandestina.

For The Love of Food

Caviar exists for the love of the food the best-tasting and highest-quality. Caviars team of Tastemakers embodies this ethos by conducting extensive taste testing and market research so that only the best tasting, highest quality restaurant food is available for delivery. Only restaurants that meet the uncompromising standards of the Caviar Tastemakers qualify for Caviar delivery. Nearly all restaurants must also earn at least a four-star Yelp rating to be considered for Caviar delivery.

We noticed many top rated restaurants did not offer delivery to homes or businesses, said Jason Wang, CEO of Caviar. We saw a big opportunity to fill this need. We are bonafide food connoisseurs and only deliver meals that meet our uncompromising standards for taste and presentation.

As a valuable service for busy families and professionals with little time to shop for food and cook meals, Caviar brings delicious food into homes or businesses that customers can enjoy every day. Caviar is the only service of its kind to feature all of the following:

Only the best local restaurants offering the best tasting, highest quality food
Full picture menus: hi-res photos of every item Caviar delivers
Fastest delivery: real-time GPS delivery tracking using its own drivers
No minimum order requirements
Customized orders with a one-hour delivery window.
The ability to order meals and schedule deliveries up to six days in advance.

How It Works Fast and Easy

Unlike other services, Caviar customers first select their desired one-hour delivery window. Then customers place their online order for delivery on the same day or on a future date with any of the available restaurants. This saves valuable time sifting through restaurants that are not available within the selected one-hour delivery window.

Customers can also order as a group by sharing their shopping cart with friends, family, and co-workers. This is especially valuable for companies that use Caviar for catering or corporate meal programs through restaurants like Publican Quality Meats. Unlike other services, Caviar services both companies and consumers with the same premium food and delivery service, including dedicated account managers that provide rapid solutions to any customer request. And thanks to its real-time GPS delivery tracking, Caviar customers always know the location of their order during its delivery route.

The Caviar Customer Success Team also distinguishes itself from other delivery services by being highly proactive, friendly and responsive to customers at every single point of interaction. Customers can always talk live with Caviar by phone or get email responses to any question within minutes. The teams rapport with restaurant partners helps them customize orders to meet individual needs and requests.

Profitable just three months after its initial launch, Caviar is projecting a 200 percent annual revenue increase in 2014. The company is on track to grab a significant portion of the $ 200 billion market Americans spend annually on food takeout and delivery. Caviar is servicing tens of thousands of orders every month and is rapidly expanding to various U.S. cities. Formal announcements for expansion to Boston and Los Angeles are expected soon.

Award-Winning Listen to Your Buds Campaign Brings Safe Listening Concerts to Orlando Schools

Rockville, MD (PRWEB) November 14, 2014

With hearing loss dramatically rising among children and adolescents, as shown in a recent Pediatrics study, Orlando school children will learn how to protect their hearing through a series of fun, interactive, and educational concerts headlined by celebrated musicians Oran Etkin and Billy Jonas. The safe listening concerts, which will occur at six elementary schools this week, are part of the national Listen to Your Buds campaign. This will be the first time that the Buds campaign, developed by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), will visit Orlando.

Listen To Your Buds is a public education effort aimed at preventing noise-induced hearing loss by helping teach young children how to use personal audio technology safely. It advocates practicing simple safe listening habits such as turning down the volume and taking listening breaks when using personal audio technology so children can avoid the devastating, lifelong effects that can accompany hearing loss. Untreated hearing loss can impact a child developmentally, academically, and socially. Recent research has shown that 1 in 5 kids ages 12-19 is now suffering from hearing loss, up 31% since the late 1980s/early 1990s.

The World Health Organization (WHO), which is leading a global initiative to inform policymakers and educate the public about the risk of hearing loss from leisure activities, recognized Listen to Your Buds campaign as an effective outreach tool to support the initiative.

What: Series of family-friendly concerts with hearing health message

When/Where: Various morning and afternoon concert times November 17, 18, and 19, 2014, at six elementary schools.

Contact: If you are a member of the media and would like to attend a concert, please contact ASHAs Joseph Cerquone at jcerquone(at)asha(dot)org or (703) 973-7744.
