What is 5BFlavor?
5BFlavor is an online ordering platform that exclusively supports restaurants in the Wood River Valley. Our goal is simply to connect the community to the local restaurants they love, safely and easily.
Restaurants do not pay anything to be part of this site and we do not take any fees or commissions when you place an order on 5BFlavor. We want restaurants to benefit from the exposure on 5BFlavor and potentially create a new revenue stream from online ordering.
What measures are restaurants taking to keep their customers and staff safe from COVID-19?
5BFlavor helps you find and order from your favorite WRV restaurants. We do not have oversight over the restaurants listed on the site. If you have concerns or questions about the safety precautions a restaurant is taking in the wake of COVID-19, please reach out to them directly. Please be prepared with your own gloves and masks when visiting a restaurant.
Why should I order on 5BFlavor?
The restaurant community is a fundamental component to life here in the Wood River Valley to locals and visitors alike. We created 5BFlavor to support our beloved local restaurants during the COVID crisis, as about half of WRV’s restaurants closed their doors for the duration of the stay-at-home order, and among those that remained open, many are just getting by. Most of us know people who own or work at local restaurants. Let’s ensure the longevity of our valley’s economy by keeping our restaurants open and thriving.
We’re working hard to get all WRV restaurants listed on 5Bflavor so you can see all of them in one centralized place, and order delicious food or drinks with just a few clicks. You can also get excited about that fact that your money goes directly to the restaurant, not a 3rd party, like so many other online ordering platforms.
Each restaurant listed on 5BFlavor is offering several options to keep you and their staff safe including to-go, curbside pick-up, delivery, or a combination of these.
Does some of my purchase go to a 3rd party?
No! The restaurant pays a small fee to process your credit card just like they would if you ordered inside the restaurant.
Is 5BFlavor going away after COVID subsides?
Definitely not! We have big plans for this site, all involving supporting our local restaurants now and well into the future. Restaurants can generate more business if they offer both online and in-store orders, especially for those with limited restaurant seating or long wait times during peak hours. We look forward to the day when we’re able to pick-up sandwiches on the way to Sun Valley Music Festival or a delicious pizza after a long day on the mountain- all with just a few clicks!
The restaurant’s online ordering page is not working properly or is not up to date. What’s up?
We’re so sorry to hear that! The intent of this platform is to make your experience as easy and simple as possible. If you are not thrilled with your online ordering experience, please contact us. Every restaurant listed on 5BFlavor is responsible for making sure their online ordering page is functioning and up to date. We’ll work with them to ensure their page meets the standards of our site.
How does 5BFlavor compare to a service like GrubHub or Doordash?
Glad you asked! 5BFlavor was created just for the Wood River Valley with the goal of driving awareness and patronage to local restaurants. Those 3rd party apps typically take 20 to 30 percent per order and charge a significant amount to set-up and maintain the restaurant’s presence on the site. 5BFlavor aims to reduce costs as much as possible for restaurants so they can focus on what matters most- serving their customers!
What happens if there’s an issue with my order?
Please contact the restaurant and they will be happy to help.
