With restaurants all over the country closing the dining room portion of their restaurants due to the COVID-19 pandemic , many are relying on delivery and carry-out orders to stay in business.
Some restaurants are even sweetening the deal by offering perks likes free food or delivery. That includes The Cheesecake Factory , which is throwing in a free slice of cheesecake with any online order of $30 or more now through April 16 .
The deal only applies to orders picked up at a restaurant, not meals that are delivered. Simply place your order , then add a slice of your favorite cheesecake to your cart and use promo code FREESLICE.
The Cheesecake Factory is also offering free delivery via DoorDash on orders of $15 or more, but, as we mentioned, the free cheesecake slice will not apply to those orders.
Chipotle is also offering free delivery on orders of $10 or more from March 15-31. The destination must be within one of Chipotle’s delivery areas and the offer is valid at participating restaurants only. You must order through the chain’s website or on the Chipotle app to get the deal.
Other restaurants and services offering free delivery in some locations include KFC, Popeyes and Uber Eats, who is waiving delivery fees for more than 100,000 independent restaurants.
Now might also be a good time to check out any home-cooked meal delivery services you may have been wondering about if you’d rather not head to the grocery store or order food to go.
As of right now, services like Blue Apron , Hello Fresh , Home Chef and Purple Carrot are still delivering and can be ordered right online so you don’t have to leave your house at all to have fresh and exciting meals. Plus, cooking yourself is a great way to pass some of that spare time.
