What is Trust Fall?
Trust Fall is an experimental delivery service run by Columbus Food Adventures that provides our customers with the scheduled delivery of a meal for 2. The ‘trust’ part is that the recipients have no idea what the food is… they just know it’s food we want to share with them from a restaurant we like (if you’re reading this, then we like you!).
We first ran this on April 16th, and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Since then we have delivered over 1000 meals from 40 different restaurants and we have been featured in the Columbus Dispatch. Our customers are all over the city.
How does Trust Fall work with restaurants?
Our goal is to provide participating restaurants with 20 orders in an evening. Each order will be exactly the same – no dietary restrictions, substitutions, food allergies, drinks… no changes/add ons whatsoever. Each order will be enough to make for a meal for two people. We assume the meal will be shared/eaten family style, so variety is a plus.
These orders should cost $25. Assuming a sellout (which is typical) we would pay you $500 ($25 x 20 orders) for the full compliment of orders for the evening.
Delivery – delivery occurs in two waves. The first pick up is at 5pm, and the second at 6:15pm, with 10 orders for each time slot. Each wave of orders is distributed among two drivers and delivered quickly to maintain freshness.
Order composition – Lets talk! We’d like to work with you to figure out the perfect Trust Fall meal.
Payment – We pay by check or credit card (your preference) at time of pick up.
In addition each meal is featured on our social media channels.
