Order from Ottawa’s best independent, locally owned and operated food businesses! Easy Scheduled & On-Demand delivery provided by dedicated, carefully vetted and smart-serve trained drivers. An ethical way to order your take-out & delivery! This is what makes for a great community that will help all of us get through these extraordinary times.

Love Local and Getit Local Delivery Have Joined Forces!

Two Ottawa delivery services have joined forces in a merger to create a single service that will increase support to Ottawa businesses still reeling from COVID-19 related lockdowns. Love Local Delivery and Getit Local, both of whom launched during the worst of the pandemic, will now provide logistics support to local restaurants and retail businesses without outrageous commission fees under the entity of Getit Local.

The new partnership will operate through a mobile ordering platform, Getit Local, which was originally launched by that company in January 2021. The sliding scale monthly subscription-based service is direct competition to existing services Uber Eats and SkipTheDishes which typically charge commission-based fees up to 30 percent of order totals.

Keeping hard earned money in the pockets of local businesses is the ethos that drives the Getit team and perfectly fits with Love Local’s raison d’etre. This partnership doubles down on our commitment to provide low-commission delivery to Ottawa restaurants and retailers, while ensuring Ottawans still enjoy the best the city has to offer, right on their doorstep.

Simply let the restaurant know that you would prefer no contact with the driver. Give them your specific contactless instructions. For example, when they arrive, they can notify you and leave your food on your doorstep (or where you request).

Handwashing

Please wash your hands after receiving your food order and before you eat it!

Over the Phone Payment for Orders
