Step Aside, Seamless: Local Food-Delivery Service Launches in Monmouth County

Jersey Shore Delivery has teamed up with a small-but-mighty array of coastal restaurants.

Hosting a get-together near Long Branch, Rumson or Sea Bright this summer? Delicious delivery is just a few clicks away.

Amid the surge of national food-on-demand apps like DoorDash and Uber Eats, longtime entrepreneur Mike Davis recently soft-launched Jersey Shore Delivery (JSD), a locally owned and operated food-delivery site serving the northern Monmouth County area.

Currently the operation has limited hours and menus, but future plans are in place for expanded hours, restaurant offerings and geographic availability. 

Davis, a Rumson native, believes there’s never been a better time to bring this kind of service to the Shore.

“Getting your favorite restaurants delivered to your door is a convenience that was only afforded to those living in major cities—until now,” he says.

Current clients include Salt Creek Grille, Butler’s Market, Gigi’s Pizza, Lusty Lobster, Tommy’s Tavern + Tap, TST BBQ, Val’s Tavern, and WindMill Hot Dogs, with several others slated to come onboard soon.

“We are excited to try something new to meet the growing needs and busy lifestyles of our customers,” says Salt Creek Grille co-owner Steve Bidgood. 

And while most participating restaurants offer real-time ordering from their regular menus, Salt Creek Grille is focusing exclusively on its catering menu—a convenient delivery option for larger crowds.

“Our off-site catered menu items have always been very popular, and we believe we can amp up our customers’ summer entertaining with the new delivery service,” Bidgood says. (Salt Creek Grille orders placed via JSD require a 24-hour notice and a $75 minimum. Delivery is available Wednesday through Sunday from 3 to 9 pm.)

Davis prides himself on keeping JSD’s chain of operations entirely local, from the drivers he hires to the uniforms he orders. 

“It’s our mission to help local restaurant owners build long-lasting, profitable businesses,” he says.
