Picture this: you’ve been travelling all day and across half the planet to reach your destination – but it’s worth it, because that destination is the city of Chicago. After getting into town from the airport and arriving at your accommodation, you collapse onto the sofa in a state of excitement and exhaustion.
There are plenty of other situations too where this service will come in handy too – perhaps you have rented an apartment for your trip and plan to entertain friends? Or – perish the thought – you need to get some work done. You also need to eat, right?
So what is this service with the rather odd name? Bootler is an online aggregator for delivery food – kind of like Kayak or Momondo for take aways. By working with more than 6 different delivery services, users can pick an establishment and compare prices, availability and delivery times. In this way you can get the best deal, saving both time and money.
Bootler brings together the delivery companies in one place and then once you have made your choice you are redirected to the specific website to complete your order.
Here’s a quick video explaining how it works:
Even better, you can order both food and alcohol from the site. Booze deliveries are taken care of by a delivery service cheekily called ‘Saucey.’
At the moment the service is only available in Chicago – we have no issue with that since Chicago is the best city in the States anyway – but by the end of the year New York will be added and more large cities will soon follow.
Even with just the one location, Bootler already has 100,000 visitors per month and on an average day 2,000 people order using the service. A mobile app will be launched in September which will make it even easier to organise your dinner delivery while on the move.
It certainly sounds like a great way to take the hassle out of ordering food and drink to be delivered and is a far cry from thumbing through the Yellow Pages (is that still a thing, actually?)
Even better, we have a couple of discount codes just for you to use on your next trip to Chicago. Just enter the following to make a substantial saving:
Use “GoBootler” to receive $10 off your alcohol order

Yet another reason to visit the Windy City, right?
