City Enhances Restaurant S.O.S. Program to Offer Free Delivery for Both Customers and Restaurants Through Dec. 30, and $10 Off Orders for New Nosh Users

The City of Boulder is enhancing the Restaurant S.O.S. Program to offer free delivery to both customers and restaurants through Dec. 30, 2020, as well as a $10 off coupon for new Boulder customers of Nosh Boulder.

The Restaurant S.O.S. Program was launched Nov. 12 to assist local restaurants and incentivize residents to support their favorite restaurants with delivery meals to enjoy food safer at home. Previously, the program included free delivery for only the restaurant portion of the delivery fees to enable restaurants to retain more of the operating cost and profit for delivered meals. Now, residents can receive free delivery through Nosh Boulder until Dec. 30, 2020.


The $10 off coupon for new Nosh users within Boulder city limits is “ NOSHCITY” and is valid to use one time per customer for minimum $25 orders. Please visit Nosh Boulder , to see the list of Boulder restaurants available for delivery at this time. As of today, 53 Boulder restaurants are available for delivery from Nosh Boulder , and more restaurants are being added.


Restaurants that are signed up with Nosh for this program will not have to pay a commission fee to use Nosh’s delivery service through Dec. 30, 2020 and after Dec. 30, 2020, will have their commission fees capped at 15% through 2021, or when in-restaurant dining capacity restrictions are lifted. Boulder restaurants can still sign-up to use Nosh Boulder as a delivery partner directly through the company.  The city is using a portion of allocated federal CARES Act funding to pay for the delivery and service fees, and the $10 off order coupon for new users through Dec. 30, 2020, the date when CARES Act funds must be spent.


Boulder’s local restaurant industry employs an estimated 7,500 workers and substantially contributes to the community’s quality of life and contributes to city sales tax revenue that funds many important services for the entire community. Restaurants across the city report ongoing challenges as impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic linger. Indoor dining limitations, understandable consumer cautiousness and anticipated colder weather have impacted almost every restaurant, café and coffee shop in the community adding to their ongoing expenses and operational pressures.
