May 18, 2019 // Chicago, IL: It’s the future of food delivery – and it could be scooting into a neighborhood near you this year.
Arizona-based Phat Scooters is the leader in the personal and commercial electric scooter market, and now they are going to revolutionize the food delivery market with their new scooter, the PHLEET, launching this weekend at the 100th Annual National Restaurant Association Tradeshow. Attendees will be the first to see this game changing scooter.
Designed specifically for food delivery, the PHLEET scooter boasts a powerful and silent 100% electric motor, a battery that goes up to 75 miles on a charge, and most importantly, the ability to drive in bike lanes to avoid traffic and the need for parking spots.
Why is this scooter allowed to ride in the bike lane? The easy to ride PHLEET has a 749 watt electric motor with a maximum speed of 20mph and fully operational pedals, therefore under most state laws it is considered a Class II E-bike. This category does not require registration or specialty licensing, which keeps the scooter extremely economical for the business owner. Additionally, it features three areas for food storage with plenty of opportunity for customized branding so that the PHLEET turns heads as a mobile billboard for the business while delivering the goods.
“The PHLEET scooter will help create opportunities for local businesses to deliver foods in an economical and eco-friendly way,” says Peter Johnson, CEO of Phat Scooters. “The PHLEET won’t get stuck in traffic and doesn’t get tired like a delivery bike rider would. It can zip around town efficiently and give business owners the opportunity to take back control of their delivery program or improve 3rd party services. Phat Scooters is thrilled to be leading this incredible delivery revolution.”
The best part about any product from Phat Scooter is their customer service – they are unmatched in quality and sincerity. If you are looking at a few options or have questions on support issues with a Phat Scooter product, they have a talented customer service team ready to assist no matter the topic.
The MSRP of new PHLEET delivery scooter base model is $2995, but Phat Scooters will offer NRA show attendees special pricing starting at $2395 for a limited time.
From Saturday, May 18 to Tuesday, May 21, stop by the Phat Scooters booth to check out the new PHLEET and meet the team behind the product at exhibit location #10502 in the Lakeside Center of McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.
