New Food Delivery Service Launches In TC

June 13, 2016

Four Northwestern Michigan College (NMC) students have launched a new food delivery service in Traverse City, with plans to expand nationally in the next year.

Chompler offers delivery from 25+ local restaurants to customers within a 15-mile delivery range. Users can browse restaurant menus and place food orders online, with delivery following in approximately 20-45 minutes. Delivery fees range from $0-$10 per order. As part of the program's launch, Chompler is offering 50 percent off delivery fees for a limited time with the online code HUNGRY. Orders can also be placed by phone at 949-GET-FOOD (949-438-3663).

According to Co-Founder and CEO Erik Akerley, Chompler will also launch a Food Garden this Friday (June 17) at 415 East Front Street. The indoor-outdoor space next to the Boardman River will offer seating for downtown customers, who can order from the company's roster of restaurants and have their food delivered to the site. The space will offer live music and will help address a lack of "outdoor and/or riverside seating" downtown, according to Akerley.
