UnoGO, a food delivery service, is slated to begin operations soon.
Even with no start-date announced, UnoGO’s website was active on Dec. 30, with options for delivery from various restaurants, including Meskla Dos, Capricciosa, Chili’s Grill & Bar, Jamaican Grill, Subway Restaurants, Olive Garden, Infusion, Pieology, Sbarro, Stax and many others.
For the first month or two, the delivery app will have a limited area, with the serviced villages including Tamuning, Tumon, Dededo, Yigo, Harmon, Hagatna, Sinajana and Mongmong-Toto-Maite.
According to a UnoGO vender presentation supplied to the Journal, what makes this delivery service different from others on island is UnoGo’s smartphone app, which allows the customer to message the driver directly from the app; customers can also follow the journey of their order by the delivery driver through a GPS map built into the app.
In addition, restaurants have access to control what shows on the app, from menu photos and descriptions to prices and specials.
As far as employees go, the majority of UnoGo drivers are employees who will wear a uniform shirt and operate UnoGo vehicles, which will be marked with a lighted UnoGO car topper. UnoGO also said it owns the whole fleet of vehicles that will be used.
To keep food warm, drivers will have electric heated bags in their vehicles, and safety seal stickers can be provided by the restaurants upon request.
UnoGO is a business unit of EC Development.
UnoGO also offers promotional spots on KUAM for restaurant partners.
UnoGO will also have reward and membership programs. The rewards points collected can be redeemed for free food, products and services from participating points partners and for free delivery. For the membership, members will pay a monthly fee of $9.99, and a$5 delivery fee on every order and receive special notifications of exclusive monthly offers from partner restaurants.
