Imagine this… it’s a Saturday afternoon. You had a few, you’re hungry and don’t want to drive. You have everything to start a braai; friends, a braaier, good music, and a lekker atmosphere, but you need a mix, wood, meat, and some snacks while the fire is on. Well, Room Service has you covered with all of the beforementioned and more. They will deliver everything to your door, without you ever climbing into a vehicle or an Uber.

This is just one of the many examples I can give you about Room Service which makes it such a rad company.

Room Service is the community-based marketing, e-commerce and super fast delivery service that aims to facilitate direct supply between producers and consumers at the best prices viable, through which job opportunities are created and initiatives supported.

“Isn’t it like any other delivery plekkie?” The answer is no, and with good reason. They work directly with the vendors and clients to ensure you get the very best on what you WANT… on one account. That’s right. On ONE account. Need something from X and Y, but don’t want to “swipe twice” – Room Service has you covered.

A little more about this local company…

Room Service was born when a drone flew over their heads without delivering any groceries.

That immediately begged the question, “why don’t we get stuff delivered that’s so close to us?”

They jumped in to build a platform that allows local businesses to market, sell and deliver their goods to the people that drive by them every day. And to those who don’t want to drive by them, per se.

What evolved, was this new thing, that everybody wonders: WHERE WERE YOU?

Their plan is to expand into all areas of this beautiful country, including the non-urban areas. They love all of you in our beautiful country.

Their dream is to let you eat fresh food directly from a farmer or kitchen that you know. If you know of small-scale farming operations, please ask them to give them a call so they can see how they can link them to this market. In that way, they give more of the value chain markup to the producer.

By connecting producers and consumers, and helping both express what they have to give or wish for, the opportunities for them to get what they want are made possible like it used to be when we still talked to our neighbors.
