Haywood Take Out brings the restaurant to the people
An interesting new enterprise has taken hold in Haywood County, and residents are thrilled. Haywood Take Out is a home-based business that provides delivery services for local restaurants that advertise on its website.
Owner Beth Siren feels a service like this is good step in promoting local businesses.
“We’re hoping to spread the word and hopefully attract more people to our area,” said Siren. “We offer this service to hotels and more, as well as places like Frog Level Brewery and Bearwaters. This is a nice niche that will promote more local businesses in Haywood County.”
Siren came up with the idea while working at TD Bank in Waynesville.
“When we were at work at the bank, we couldn’t leave for lunch,” she said. “The only place that delivered to use was pizza. I just thought it would be a good idea.”
Customers can have fresh-made food from the following restaurants delivered right to their door: A Taste of New Orleans, Duvalls, Kaninis, Underwood’s, Bridget’s Bistro at Herren House, Fat Buddies, Haywood Smokehouse, Kobe Express, Nik’s Hotdog Shack, Snappy’s Italian Restaurant, Thai Spice and New Happy Garden.
To order, visit www.haywoodtakeout.com. Enter a zip code to see which restaurants are available for delivery. Choose an open restaurant, peruse the menu, create the order and submit it. The website provides an estimated delivery time; orders can also be submitted for a specific delivery time. The website is easy to navigate and user friendly.
The delivery fee ranges from $5.99 to $7.99, depending on the area. Haywood Take Out delivers to the majority of Haywood County, including the further reaches of the county like Fines Creek and Jonathan Creek.
