WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) — Kenny and Shelly Schultz have discovered a way to provide locals with money-saving elements as it pertains to deliveries.
The pair recently started "Go Go Grocery Delivery and More," a delivery company with the goal to bring customers the exact same prices they would pay in-person at a store or restaurant.
The couple is fully licensed through Wisconsin and Marathon County, and they're working with local grocers and restaurants in the Wausau area.
In an effort to provide in-store and restaurant menu prices, Go Go Delivery does not charge any markups or hidden fees like other national delivery services in the Wausau area, that may charge extra fees during checkout.
Kenny and Shelly are firm believers that it's not just about dropping off ordered items, but it's about serving the community and building relationships.
"The big delivery services, they don’t have the connection we do here in the community in Wausau and surrounding areas," Kenny Schultz said. "We know the community, we know the stores and we know how hard Covid hit everyone. "We’re here to help not just the restaurants, but the grocers and customers as well.”
Schultz said after doing extensive research on the larger delivery companies that offer services in the Wausau and surrounding areas, he noticed none of them had local ties.
Schultz said not being local can minimize the level of understanding, care, and customer service that should be offered in a community. This is also another reason why the company is pushing for in-store and restaurant menu priced deliveries.
"We wanted to research them and see what they offered, and we found out a lot of them offer anywhere from 20% to 40% markup," Schultz said. "For a local small town Wausau it's just too much.”
Schultz is also prioritizing the need to help those who may be unable to leave their homes as well.
There is a flat fee of $5.49 delivering from restaurants to your home.
Groceries are $14.99 to deliver from the store to your door, with slightly higher prices in the surrounding Wausau metro area.
There is no minimum or maximum order price total; Kenny Schultz said regardless of the price, Go Go will deliver it.
No contracts are required with the stores or restaurants that use Go Go as well.
