CHK PLZ Is A Montreal-Based App With Commission-Free Delivery For Your Fave Restaurants

If you've been looking for an alternative to traditional delivery apps like Uber Eats and SkipTheDishes, a local Montreal startup has just what you're looking for. CHK PLZ, started by Eric Haniak and his business partners Roberto Casoli and Olivier Eydt, offers commission-free delivery that aims to "empower" restaurants relying on delivery to survive during the pandemic.* 

"When COVID-19 restrictions came into effect, we noticed Montreal restaurants were struggling to transition from a dine-in to a takeout/delivery model," Matthew Haniak, CHK PLZ marketing director, told MTL Blog.

With high commission fees of 20-30%, it is simply not sustainable for restaurants to rely on [other apps] as their sole source of revenue. 

Matthew Haniak, CHK PLZ marketing director

"We created a commission-free platform for restaurants to reach their customers online and accept orders directly from their own website."  

With over 250 restaurant partners and counting, CHK PLZ is full of familiar favourites like Arthurs and Satay Brothers. 

"The issue with other delivery apps like Uber Eats and SkipTheDishes is that they were never designed to be the main delivery provider for restaurants," said Matthew.  

"Above just our app, customer should focus on ordering from a restaurant's website rather than using popular apps — this is really the best way to support restaurants in these difficult times," added Eric. 

CHK PLZ is available for download on both the Apple and Android app stores.
