Canadian white label same-day delivery company Tyltgo wants restaurants and small businesses to compete with major same-day carriers like Deliveroo and Just Eat.
Tyltgo, which raised CAD $2.3 million in a recent seed funding round, offers restaurants and small businesses home delivery under their own name and not that of the carrier itself. This also allows them to connect directly with gig economy couriers.
“I think about us as a post-purchase experience company,” co-founder and CEO Jaden Pereira said. “The recipient goes directly onto the merchant’s platform and places orders through them, so it feels like they’re interacting with the brand they purchased from throughout the entire experience. Our messages, notifications, tracking pages and delivery are all customised under the merchant’s brand name, but it’s powered by Tyltgo.”
Same-day delivery has boomed during the pandemic, and Tyltgo saw business grow by 2,000% between December 2019 and December 2020. In the next year the company projects another 1,500% growth.
“The main reason why we’re doing this is because a lot of these smaller, brick-and-mortar retailers don’t have the time and resources to be able to compete with the Amazons of the world,” said Pereira. “We want to be able to put that power in their hands.”
