A ground-breaking new national initiative will enable pubs to trade as food shops and transform into ‘click and collect’ havens, helping to give their local communities access to essential food items.
Powered by StarStock, mypubshop.com will give pubs nationwide the ability to take and process orders online, providing them with a valuable income stream whilst offering their local community a way to access essential household staples such as bread, eggs and milk.
The partnership with Brakes, the leading food wholesaler, will also open up the service to the 15,000-plus pubs it regularly supplies. It will offer participating venues a food shop ‘starter kit’.
Each transaction made via mypubshop will accrue a 2% fee to cover operational costs; however, the venture is being run as a non-profit, with any surplus revenue donated directly to the NHS.
The mypubshop platform will give pubs the ability to host a web shop. Licensees will be able to select items for their shop ‘inventory’ and provide an online payment service. Once orders are placed by customers, pubs will operate a collection service from their venues.
The mypubshop service launches W/C 30/3 and is available nationwide.
