BEACHWOOD, Ohio (WOIO) - The City of Beachwood is launching a program next week called Beachwood Delivers.

Beachwood will contract drivers to deliver from nine local restaurants for free, according to a release.

The goal? Eliminating hefty service fees for restaurants already struggling to meet their profit margins amid the pandemic.

After launch, Beachwood residents will place an order at a participating restaurant and pay. Then, the restaurant will call a contracted driver to arrange delivery.

The program will be available daily from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Orders cannot be less than $25.

A release said the drivers will be paid $20 as city contracted employees. Apply here.
