We’ve all been there: late night weekend cravings.
When this wave of hunger hits after 9 pm on a Saturday night, and you already have those unsuitable-for-the-outside-world stretchy pants on, the last thing you want to do is gear up and venture out to grab the grub you’re itching for.
Now, instead of bribing loved ones or attempting to blackmail friends into grabbing you a burger at 1 am – turn to Midnight Feast and you’ll be satisfied without taking out your hanger out on anybody.
Started by Connor McDonald and Russel Fryer, Midnight Feast has only been serving Vancouverites since the last weekend of May. The service operates Friday and Saturday nights from 9 pm to 4 am, and delivers only to those in the Downtown Vancouver core.
Fryer, who already Vancouver pedi-cab company Tikki Tikki, asked McDonald to partner with him to start this business, one he saw a niche for in our city.
While this isn’t the first food delivery service in Vancouver, it definitely runs the latest, making it a primary speed-dial for those partying, night owl bar stars, or those getting home from late shifts.
Currently the fee for Midnight Feast is $7.95 plus a 20% surcharge on the total price of each order. The food is delivered in Foodora-style insulated bags to anyone in the downtown core of Vancouver (anywhere west of Main Street where couriers don’t have to cross a bridge to get to).
Soon customers will be able to place their orders using a Midnight Feast app, but for now, people can submit their requests through the website, after which they’ll receive a link to track the delivery, so you can watch your grub come to you – just like Dominos.
This service currently offers delivery from the following spots:
The average delivery time for almost every place is 34 minutes, excluding Denny’s and Jang Mo Jib, where the wait is 44 minutes approximately.
In Vancouver Foodora delivers from 10 am to 10 pm, but not all of its restaurants are open until then, and DoorDash’s latest delivery time in 11:30 pm – that’s where the late night Midnight Feast may come in handy.
