Turns out one of the biggest customers of Waiters On The Go, the new restaurant-food delivery service in our rural county, is people who are staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Grass Valley, according to my sources.
One of their favorites is the pizza pies at Lefty’s Grill in Nevada City.
I always thought it was a bad idea for the Holiday Inn not to provide any on-site food service beyond a vending machine. The hotel relies on catering from the Holbrooke Hotel, but that’s it. (And you know what tough times the Holbrooke has been going through).
Short of walking across the street to Villa Venezia, a good choice, or into town, the Holiday Inn guests are turning to the handout flyers from Waiters on the Go.
It’s only $10 (plus tip, I hope) beyond what the restaurant menu charges.
With our older demographics, this is a good business model. I’m sure the volume will pick up as we keep getting older, and people can’t drive out as much.
