Neighborhood Special delivery
Welcome to a new service of SpringGate bringing a scheduled delivery to your neighborhood in 2020. We put this service together with our food partners, 717taco and ChefTony and others for a unique experience in unique times. Bear with us, as our local family farm and family businesses navigate the challenges of technology, PA's unique alcohol laws, and our COVID environments.
On the morning before our arrival we will enable sgneighborhood.myshopify.com with your neighborhood delivery address, and using your smart phone, and credit card be able to pre-order what you want us to deliver to you. You can pre-order the day of the event, or order on-site with a five minute delay. Order link will be posted by 8am on the day of the event. This pre-order using our web site is a requirement of PA state law.
The products we deliver in this program are a select list, but they include wine, beer in cans and crowlers, hard ice tea, and seltzers. You can find the list that will be available in your neighborhood's facebook event listing here.
Most Neighborhood Special Delivery's are scheduled for 5-7PM, and at a pre-determined location normally negotiated with the HOA, our white van will show up, and our appropriately masked staff member will setup orange cones to mark appropriate social distances and deliver your order after you show appropriate ID.
While the actual list will be in your FB Event page, a representative list as of May looks like this:
Chardonnay, Sweet White, Mello Variety Pack, CS, Rendezvous, Indian Summer Catawba, Blackberry Red Sangria, Renove, Wine Slushy Cans, Adult Slushy Pouch, Belgian Blonde 6-pack, Hazy IPA Growler, Vienna Lager Growler, Lemon Hard Iced Tea, Peach Hard Iced Tea, Raspberry Hard Iced Tea, Crafty Hard Blackberry Lemonade
If you are interested in your neighborhood participating in this program with our partners, you will need to communicate with us at email@example.com. Note that our coverage for this program is predominately Cumberland and Dauphin County. When you contact us, we'll be interested in whether your neighborhood has an HOA and who that contact is, whether you have a neighborhood social media ability through a Facebook Group, Web Page, or a NextDoor Group. We will need to communicate through your local social media, and it must be in place two weeks before we show up.
We will be requesting that you allow us to be a member of your neighborhood facebook or NextDoor Group so that we can answer questions, and communicate our coming.
Places Where We Won't/Can't Go
There are various legal restrictions and cultural morays that our food and beverage partnership won't cross such as municipally owned sites, churches, and schools including parking in front of them on the street. In addition the following municipalities ban food trucks or registration fee is too high:
Having done this since March we are now returning to sites that were successful for our partnerships. Being successful requires much local help in communications and marketing with local social media. If you want us to be successful, you'll need to make sure that your neighborhood has put in that effort.
