Contigo Catering & Dispatch, is launching interactive virtual classes and drive-thru pop-ups as an offshoot of Contigo Catering, alongside their seasonal homestyle meals, family meals and grocery items for delivery and pickup.
CONTi-GO Dispatch was launched in March 2020 by owner Brooke Greer as a meal delivery and grocery service and has since developed the concept further to offer virtual classes & pop-up neighborhood drive-thrus, in addition to meal delivery and pickup at their kitchen located at 3709 Promontory Point Dr., B201, Austin, TX 78744.
“The day SXSW cancelled, our entire spring season was decimated, the 3 months we bring in 40% of our revenue for the year. We fell hard, and we fell fast. I knew we would have to act, and overnight quickly jumped into the family meal delivery, became a product-driven company vs. a services business and launched an online ordering system. At first, it was a bandaid to get us through what felt like a season-ending injury. Now, we are reconstructing our business. Truth be told, there may not be live events for a while, which we were (and still are) really, really good at executing. While the team and I still have our ups and downs, good & bad days, the creative energy that comes from reworking our business model, alongside staying relevant and engaged with our audience, has been life giving; and it pushes me personally through the exhaustion.” – Brook Greer
Virtual classes can be purchased on CONTi-GO Dispatch’s website, and will include a link to a video tutorial. Upcoming virtual classes and packages include:
Stir Crazy Vol. 1 The Martini ($40): kit comes with cocktail ingredients and garnish to make a classic gin martini, dirty vodka martini and Mexican martini, taught live.
