    • A discounted delivery commission rate of 15% and takeout rate of 12.5% for restaurants that use NoCo Nosh services 
  • Fort Collins restaurants not currently signed up with NoCo Nosh can also be added to the platform at no cost until December 30, 2021. 

      Any licensed Fort Collins restaurant may participate in the program, even if they have an existing contract with NoCo Nosh or any other third-party delivery vendor.
