Co-owners Tony Marchuk and Olivier Corizzi of Avenue Media, a Sarasota-based digital marketing agency, recently launched TakeoutSRQ. Marchuk and Corizzi designed the new initiative to help support local restaurants during the governed restrictions placed on in-dining service, mandated in order to combat the spread of COVID-19. 

TakeoutSRQ’s free-of-charge platform encourages consumers to support their favorite spots by directly contacting eateries for local delivery rather than using a third-party company, eliminating additional fees for those ordering and allowing the restaurant to receive more profit. 

“Nationwide, we’re going through a really difficult time,” says Marchuk. “What is happening to our local economy is absolutely heartbreaking. We wanted to create a way to give back to our community and support our local home-grown restaurants by spreading the word about what’s available for takeout and delivery services.”

The online resource provides an up-to-date listing of places in Sarasota, Bradenton Venice, North Port and Lakewood Ranch currently offering takeout and delivery in the community. Main Street's MADE, C'est La Vie, Avli Mess Hall, O&A Coffee and Green Zebra Cafe are among the 50 eateries in their system already, as well as Siesta Key's My Village Pub and Big Water Fish Market, and Gulf Gate's Gecko's Grill & Pub and Mellow Mushroom. TakeoutSRQ is actively adding more to its database every day who need a little helping hand during these trying times in the hospitality industry. 

Prospective customers are able to narrow down the listing by desired cuisine. A selection of choices will appear, along with information on the restaurant’s menu, operating hours and telephone number to place an order.
