A new application based in Miami has been launched named Lovvett, which helps local restaurants reduce food waste and convert excess food into more income for businesses.
Lovvett lets residents of South Floridia order “surplus deals” at heavily discounted prices around town – and restaurants benefit from additional income streams that sell food that might be wasted. The deals are usually 50 percent of the retail price and rotate on a daily basis. Some of its recent offerings are a burger combo from Clutch Burger for $ 9.99 instead of the usual $ 20 price tag or six donuts and coffee from Honeybee Donuts for $ 13.50 instead of $ 30.
Lovvett plans to start offering regular menus from participating restaurants along with their surplus offerings. It also plans to start offering delivery (currently only pick-ups) and will expand services nationwide.
