Need a burger, but can’t leave the house? Now you can order one directly to your door with Brookings newest delivery service: Oregon Delivers.
The idea for Oregon Delivers was born when owners, Tim and Tracy DeShon, were talking to a friend who started a delivery service of her own, and they noticed Brookings did not offer many services like that.
“We have quite a few retired people there and the weather is not always nice, people don’t want to go out and do stuff. So, it sounded like a good thing, and we can be helping a lot of people out too,” said Tim DeShon.
Currently, there are nine restaurants available on the Oregon Delivers website for users to choose from. However, more restaurants are continually being added to the site and they plan to expand to grocery deliveries by summer. DeShon said the restaurant owners he has talked to have been receptive to using their services.
“It’s going to be helping them, too, especially with COVID, never knowing when they are going to shut stuff down again. It would be a way to try to help restaurants stay open when people can’t go eat,” Tim said.
The Deshon’s have lived in Brookings with their three children for four years now. Tim currently works at the Crescent City Safeway and Tracy worked a job in insurance, which she gave up to focus on the new business full-time.
As of now, Tim and Tracy are delivering the food themselves, but they plan to hire drivers once business picks up. Additionally, they have submitted an Oregon Delivers app for approval and hope it will be available on both the Apple Store and Google Play by summer. Oregon Delivers will deliver to anyone located in the Brookings-Harbor area. Three miles are included in the base charge and an additional 25 cents per mile is tacked on.
Oregon Delivers aims to be a long-term, reliable service for the community of Brookings. They are in the midst of setting up a “round-up” program, which will give customers the option to round-up their purchase to the next dollar with the proceeds going to the South Coast Humane Society.
“I look forward to serving the community. We love Brookings, we’re not going anywhere,” said DeShon.
