Goldbelly : On toes even in pandemic

When the global pandemic hit, everybody was struggling to survive. Like thousands of restaurants, Di Fara, one of New York’s pizza joints, was also stuck in the same situation during the global pandemic. The question they were struggling with was how to get customers when they could not leave their houses.

They came up with an idea to provide contactless delivery of frozen pieces of the classic pie across the country. For this, the eateries needed to find some e-commerce platform to help them out, so they shook hands with the 8-year old eCommerce platform, Goldbelly. The rational problem-solving move increased the company’s sales so much that Di Fara had to convert its second location into a food hall and essentially became the product line of Goldbelly.

Because of the pandemic, many people lost their jobs, and companies were also not in a position to pay. While many restaurants had to lay off their employees, Di Fara was able to successfully avoid layoffs. Margaret Mieles, the daughter of Di Fara’s founder, credits Goldbelly with the fact that they were one of the few organisations in the food industry that could survive the pandemic.

Around 850 restaurants sell food on Goldbelly’s platform. Of these, 400 restaurants joined after the pandemic hit.
