Want to know why Feast is so important for local restaurants? The CEO behind Little Donkey sums it up:

“Business is very good right now which means we are busy… more and more our customers who are not in the building are demanding our attention and time.  Catering is a daunting task for most people organizing an event. They need time to decide and explain the details and make sure their function is in “great” hands. They need to trust us. 

When a guest wants to talk to us during our lunch or dinner rush, we have to balance our “now” business with our “future” business. Both are equally important to us, and Feast has helped us manage this exponentially!”

Joshua Gentry, CEO, Little Donkey

Feast comes in to help local restaurants make the most of their catering orders. Feast’s founders, Brett Ables and Erin Hill, have spent years in the restaurant industry. Thanks to their experience, they know just how important it is to team up with local restaurants to take away the stress of managing catering orders.

With Feast, restaurants get a third party that gets to know their brand and makes sure the customer doesn’t have to sacrifice. They work with former restaurant pros who know the ins and outs of catering

“I’ve been dealing with 3rd party vendors for years. This is the most empathetic group I’ve ever experienced. A true partnership.”

Joshua Gentry, CEO, Little Donkey

  1. Feast has a dedicated call center ready to walk customers through their catering order. For the customers who prefer to order online, Feast provides a user-friendly platform with a variety of amazing restaurants.
  2. Once Feast has all of the details from the customer the restaurant is able to do what they do best: make tasty food.
  3. A Feast driver arrives at the scheduled time and delivers the catering order to the customer, which means the restaurant is able to keep their staff focused on serving customers inside the four walls.

“Feast is designed to be an extension of each restaurant partner. Catering orders are great for increasing profit margins. Unfortunately, very few restaurants have the resources necessary to provide these customers with the attention they need to navigate such large orders. The restaurant industry is still trying to find its footing, and these customers are ordering very large meals daily, so they don’t have time to wait. We are ready to solve their problems now.”

Brett Ables, Co-Founder, Feast

The restaurants you know and love already value working with Feast, because they see just how much Feast values them.

“It’s been a 10/10 – so glad we made this decision!”

Jeremy Chambers, COO, Hero Doughnuts & Buns

A win for Bham restaurants + hungry customers

When local businesses in Birmingham succeed, we all thrive. Catering orders give restaurants a chance to raise profits and create new jobs, but many third-party businesses take a huge cut of the profit.

Feast is fighting against that because, at the heart of their business, they want to support everyone in the restaurant industry. From restaurant founders and kitchen staff to servers and delivery drivers, each restaurant employee is part of a big family. Feast wants to make sure everyone in that restaurant family has the support they need.

“In the restaurant business, margins are very thin. If we can maximize our productivity by adding catering revenue, it’s a win AND more and more guests want the convenience of catering. Feast helps both us and the customer.”

Joshua Gentry, CEO, Little Donkey
