Having experienced a significant drop in trade when lockdown began, Shrewsbury Taxis/ Cars run by husband and wife team Matt Young and Natalie Jameson, has restyled itself as a food delivery business with its new Shrewsbury Eats App, available on Android and Apple.
Whilst the taxi business is still very much operational (in line with government guidance), Shrewsbury EATS is providing an important additional revenue stream for drivers. Twenty restaurants have already signed up with
more to follow.

Matt said: “We have over 100 self-employed drivers reliant on the work we bring them. We were doing lots of things during lockdown, from parcel deliveries to delivering prescriptions and ferrying keyworkers, but it wasn’t getting work up to where drivers need it to be. “We did our research. We knew the restaurants were keen and we had 100 local drivers eager to work!” Matt and Natalie have worked together for 20 years, setting up Shrewsbury Taxis and Cars in 2011. Natalie brings the marketing know-how and is behind the branding for both Shrewsbury Cars and Shrewsbury Eats: “We are going with ‘Your Favourite Foods Delivered Fast’,” she said.

“We aim to bring to the fab people of Shrewsbury the finest food the town has to offer. Because we have such a high volume of cars, we are always on time collecting the food which means it’s not sitting around going cold!

“Business is fantastic and has brought a welcome amount of work for the taxi drivers - so much so, that we will in fact, be looking to do a recruitment drive later this month. Obviously, Matt and I couldn’t be happier and the feedback from customers has been amazing.”

“Restaurants are not delivery drivers,” added Matt. “They should do what they do best. We move people, parcels and food. That’s what we do best. “The taxi business has such a good relationship and reputation that people have welcomed us into this marketplace. If we can get people home on a Saturday night safely, and their daughters and husbands, they can be confident that we can get their fish and chips to them!”
