LAS VEGAS — A new delivery service owned by local restaurants plans to launch at the end of April. Kristen Corral, one of the co-owners of the vegan Mexican restaurant Tacotarian, says the new service, a local cooperative dubbed LoCo, will charge restaurants a 15 percent commission, half of what typical third-party delivery apps charge, and pay drivers $15 per hour through commissions and tips. So far, nearly 30 restaurants signed up to be owners of the co-op, including FukuBurger, Cornish Pasty Co., Volcano Grille, and 595 Craft & Kitchen. [EaterWire]
