Portland Pedal Power Expands Services to Offer Catering By Bicycle
Portland Pedal Power, Portland’s sustainable food and product delivery company, has expanded its services to offer catering delivery. Residents of downtown, the Pearl, NW and inner NE and SE Portland can now order food for office meetings, parties, and other gatherings from PPP’s partner restaurants and food carts and have it delivered by bicycle. Orders are delivered on PPP’s unique cargo bikes with enclosures. A trailer made from recycled bike tubing and bamboo is used for larger orders.
The expansion of services was made possible by a redesign of the PPP enclosure interiors. The enclosures are now equipped with wooden shelves that substantially increase the capacity for cargo.
Portland Pedal Power’s mission is to accelerate the sales of sustainably-minded local businesses through bike deliveries, promotional services, and mobile Pedal Ads. PPP specializes in the delivery of fresh local food and products and partners with local restaurateurs, food cart vendors and artisan product makers. PPP is licensed by the OLCC to deliver beer and wine. Portland Pedal Power has been operating in downtown Portland for over a year.
Vendors who have partnered with PPP include food carts Koi Fusion, Savor Soup House, and Aybla Grill, restaurants like Seres Restaurant and Bar, PK Thaiwww.pkthaiinthepearl.com/, and Habibi, and local companies such as Portland Truffle, City Flowers & Interiors, and Little Green Grocer. Bunk Sandwiches recently partnered with Portland Pedal Power for catering specific deliveries.
In addition to the delivery services, PPP provides clients with mobile marketing. Bike enclosures are equipped with distinctive signs called Pedal Ads, and PPP promotes partners through flyer distribution, sampling, and presence at local events.
