New food app, Gourmet2Go, launches in the UK

Say ‘hello’ to your new favourite delivery app! Gourmet2Go is an exclusive food delivery service which makes all the finest food, drink, gourmet gift boxes and hampers from around the UK available on one platform.

Whether it’s a Spanish charcuterie box from the revered Brindisa as a gastronomic Christmas present, six bottles of something special from Pippa Sedgwick Wines to say you care or kimchi from the Korean Pantry for a gourmet night in, Gourmet2Go has it all! 

With quality food, service and delivery guaranteed, Gourmet2Go ‘Boxed Up’ is ready to shake up the delivery market and offer a new way to enjoy high-quality, mouth-wateringly tasty produce all over the UK.

With an easy-to-use app, strict vetting before signing up and, most importantly, fair service to support quality establishments, Gourmet2Go was founded in Penrith, in the heart of the Lake District, by ambitious foodie and young entrepreneur George Thwaytes (26). 

Passionate not just about bringing foodies the best food and drink available, Gourtmet2Go also cares about supporting hospitality. For this reason, there are no set-up fees and they only charge a small commission on each sale that comes through the app. 

George said: “We set up Gourmet2Go to give premium restaurants and food producers a chance to showcase their food an on app that specialises in top quality produce. Our market research showed there is amazing food on offer on other apps, but products are often alongside options which aren’t of the same quality.

“Independent businesses have had a difficult couple of years, with many falling by the wayside in what have been testing times, so we want to use this as a platform to showcase the very best and to give them the wide audience their produce deserves.”

He added: “We intend to fill a gap in the market for a well-curated app for customers to browse from a huge variety of fresh food, but at an affordable price for businesses that sign up. That is the ethos behind Gourmet2Go’s Boxed Up.”

The app, available on iPhone and Android, can simply be downloaded, enabling you to browse everything on offer and pay easily, making the whole service entirely contactless and efficient.
