Now that Social Distancing is an every day reality amid the coronavirus outbreak, food meal delivery apps are making major changes to help protect both their customers and drivers.
No-contact drop-off, cleaning supplies for delivery crews and financial relief funds for drivers are among the measures businesses like Uber Eats, Grubhub and others have adopted in response to the virus.
Now BYPPO Technologies based in Gainesville, Florida, is taking it up a notch with a free web-based app for its restaurant partners that integrates online curbside pickup with absolute minimal contact.
Local restaurants in Gainseville, Florida such as Sublime Tacos, Cilantro Tacos, Patticakes, and Prum’s Kitchen have signed on as BYPPO’S mobile-ordering and concessions app so that restaurant customers can decrease their chances of acquiring the coronavirus by using express pick-up and curbside pickup services.
“Our online curbside pickup service allows for absolute minimal contact,”said Victoria Liu, Founder/CEO of BYPPO Technologies. And as a public service during this very challenging time, we are offering our services for FREE for the entire community — all restaurants and customers can use it for FREE right now to help mitigate the effects and spread of the coronavirus,” Liu said.
Here’s how it works: Byppo currently offers vendors and customers 5 different service options — pre-ordering, express pick-up, curbside pick up, table delivery, and in-seat delivery. Almost all their services focus on minimal physical contact between the vendor/restaurant and the customer, which is something everyone one is concerned about currently.

Liu said BYPPO runs special promotions with all their restaurant partners, keeping customers who order happy. “For example, so far all our restaurants take $1 off a customer’s first order when ordering through Byppo and we run a weekly $25 raffle giveaway for customers that place an order at Cilantro Tacos (@ Town of Tioga location). This is something exclusive only through ordering through the Byppo app.” said Liu.
