About LoCo Tampa Bay

LoCo Tampa Bay is a local restaurant owned catering marketplace of restaurants and caterers. We are passionate about putting the power back in the hands of our community. We believe in supporting businesses that invest where we live, not national giants that take millions out to benefit investors.

Imagine: More money (millions) circulating here in Tampa Bay, supporting local restaurants, customers getting 4x more cash back on catering orders VS. the national competitor , referrals, drivers, and even cancer patients in need all benefiting financially. That’s the LoCo difference

Our Social Enterprise distributes up to 50% of profits to:

  • Customers for their loyalty
  • Friend referrals for spreading the word about our unique service
  • FL Cancer Specialist Foundation to help local cancer patients during treatments pay their bills if they can’t work
  • Delivery drivers for providing professionalism and great customer service

So why give profits back to the community?

We believe it’s time communities come together to compete against the large venture backed corporate companies. Currently our largest national competitor is ez-ily taking $150 to $200 million out of communities across the country and approximately $1 to $2 million out of Tampa Bay every year.

Isn’t it time we support each other and keep our hard-earned money home? LoCo has the technology, experience, and tools to do it now. We just need the community to help us spread the word and support the service by ordering while getting handsomely rewarded ($$). Fair enough?

Be a 21st Century Pioneer and Join US as WE ALL WIN!
