Restaurateur Joe Pagliaro on a Fonz Arthur Model 2 electric delivery scooter
Australia’s first electric motorcycle company, Fonzarelli, is getting creative during the pandemic and offering “zero emissions” delivery for a Bondi restaurant.
Unlike UberEats or Deliveroo where 35% of the bill goes to Silicon Valley, the Sydney company has teamed with local gnocchi bar, Peppe’s Bondi, to deliver Italian meals straight to your door.
For $60 a Peppe’s daily meal will get you a gnocchi, red beet panzanella salad and bottle of Sicilian wine.
“With our first partnership, Peppe’s, we are exploring different areas to optimise this unusual time,” says Fonzarelli spokeswoman Cristina.
“This supports our local economy and keeps their hospitality workers in jobs.
“It’s guilt-free dinner when it’s delivered to your door with an electric vehicle.
“All the hygienic procedures and precautions are followed to guarantee a safe delivery for both the rider and the customer.
“We will keep you posted for further partnerships.”
