ShortStaf for Delivery

ShortStaf for Delivery!

Welcome to ShortStaf for Delivery! 

Here we are going to break down what we do, why we do it, and how you can use this new service to improve your bottom-lines and customer relationships. Quit passing your hard-earned money to other apps with hefty fees and commissions. 

 

What is ShortStaf for Delivery?

 

ShortStaf makes it easy to share your food with your customers. Rather than using a third party app for delivery –  use ShortStaf to save time, money, and the hassle. 

 

How is this different than DoorDash or GrubHub?

 

When you post on ShortStaf for a delivery driver, they’re only working for you. They will come to your location and get down to business- your business.

Other third party delivery apps have busy drivers. They are taking multiple orders, driving to various locations all over town, and you don’t really know when your food is going to make it to its destination. 

Now – you control the orders, you’re defining the delivery area, and you know exactly where your driver is headed.

With ShortStaf for delivery, you have the opportunity to have direct and clear communication with your driver. They are only handling your orders, under your direction and guidelines. 

 

How does this save you money?

 

ShortStaf doesn’t charge you to sign up, on an order by order basis, or charge any kind of commission structure. You pay for the Staf from the platform – and that is it. There is no fluctuating or questionable cost associated.

When your payment is processed on the app, that’s it. We’ll take care of the rest – including getting the money you paid to the driver. There are no other premiums, commissions, costs involved – and no cash handling required. 

 

Why should you use ShortStaf for Delivery?

 

ShortStaf offers the opportunity to grow your revenue stream during these uncertain times, while offering your customers a convenient and comfortable way to have their favorite foods delivered to them.

5 Gin Cocktails to Suit Your Besties

The warm weather is here and we have the perfect cocktails to pair with sunshine, good times, and great company (yes, virtual company included). This year gin is making a huge comeback. It is light, easy to drink, and has a distinct botanical flavor. The best part? There are SO many different ways to serve and enjoy it. You can cater to your entire friend group with these different takes on a classic spirit. For your next party (or FaceTime bonanza), think about sipping something new and different! Here are 5 different gin cocktails to suit your diverse friend group. 

 

Gin and Tonic 

Friend Profile: Your friend who loves gin. They have tried everything and always fall back to their favorite (that is also a classic). They don’t measure. They pour and go. Their measurements are probably 3/4 of the way gin, 1/4 tonic. And we are okay with that. 

Recipe: *Doesn’t matter*…making it for someone else?

Here is the recipe so you can make it:

2oz Gin

4oz-5oz of tonic

Garnish with lime wedge

Cucumber Lime Breeze (ShortStaf Recipe) 🥒

Friend Profile:  Peppy, bubbly, and wholesome. They say they are simple, but seek complex conversations, relationships, and cocktails. They always ask for a drink menu when you go out, scouring over each option- making sure the cocktail matches their mood. They rarely order the same thing twice. You can never order a drink for them because their preferences are always changing. 

Recipe:

3 slices cucumber

2oz Gin

Whole lime (cut in half and juiced)

This cocktail is shaken in a tin and strained over ice

Top the mixture with sparkling water

Garnish with a cucumber slice

Bees Knees 🐝

Friend profile: They are an optimist, love parties, and go for anything yellow. The pale, lovely color of this beverage matches their dazzling personality. The bees knees cocktail is little sweet, with the perfect amount of sour (just like your friend). They probably mention how this a prohibition era cocktail. (because they enjoy fun facts, and so do we).

Recipe: 

2oz gin

3/4 oz fresh lemon juice 

1oz honey syrup (what is honey syrup? Equal parts honey and hot water, stirred)

This cocktail is served up (shaken to perfection and strained into a martini glass…or solo cup. We don’t judge).

 

Negroni 🇮🇹

Friend profile: Straightforward, strong, and to the point, just like this classic Italian cocktail. It only has 3 ingredients (that are all alcohol). The Negroni is a cocktail that grows on you. In the same way your friend approaches friendship, by the end of the conversation (or cocktail), you can tell that you guys will be BFFL. 

Recipe:

Equal parts (1oz)  Campari, Sweet Vermouth, and Gin

Served on the rocks

 

Gin and Juice 🍹

Friend profile: Probably hasn’t had gin before, but is totally up to give it a try. Has a great attitude when it comes to trying new things. Even if they don’t like it, they say something along the lines of “it is good! but maybe it just isn’t for me”. When it comes to gin and juice, they LOVE it. The ambiguity of the mixture entices them. Let them pick the juice of their choice and they are sure to be sipping their new favorite all night. 

Recipe: 

1oz-2oz gin

4oz-5oz juice

(based on personal taste)

Served on the rocks

Now, you have a gin cocktail to match the taste of ALL your friends! Enjoy one (or all) (responsibly) of these cocktails for your next party, virtual hangout, or in the comfort of your home. Cheers to that. 

Fall in love with hosting parties

Fall in love with Hosting Parties!

Hosting a party should give you that warm fuzzy feeling. You are bringing friends and family together to celebrate! Whether it is a birthday, holiday, announcement, or just because, you deserve to enjoy with your guests.

This Fall season, we want you to ‘Fall’ in love with hosting. At times, it can be stressful and overwhelming. Thanks to ShortStaf, it simply doesn’t have to be that way anymore.

How can you ‘Fall’ in love with hosting? We’ll tell you how in 3 easy steps.

  1. Start planning ahead

Think about everything you need, people you need to invite, and how you’re going to do it. The best way to do this is to make lists! Yes, it sounds basic, but even the best of us forget this small detail. Ever been to the grocery store with a list and still forget something? Yeah, us too. Double check your lists to make sure you don’t forget anyone or anything 🙂

 2. Make yourself a priority

When planning a party, we all seem to lose ourselves in the details. The host naturally thinks of the guests’ needs first. What are they going to want and need when they arrive? How much food and drinks will need to be prepared..and where will it go? Remember, it is your party too! You deserve to enjoy it.

 3. Post to find extra help on the ShortStaf App

All hosts have different needs when it comes to partying. For myself, I would post for set up help because I love decorations (and I have a lot of them). You may want to post for a server to help you prepare appetizer platters, food stations, and clean up as you go! Bartenders are very popular on ShortStaf as well. This allows you and your guests to have full glasses while you sit back, relax, and enjoy each other’s company.

‘Fall’ in love with hosting by planning ahead, making yourself a priority, and posting on the ShortStaf App to make it all happen. This season, spend quality time with your family and friends. How can you make memories when you are constantly cooking, serving, cleaning, and playing bartender? Another season of happy hosting ahead, this time, with some extra help. #ThanksShortStaf
