A sorely missed casualty of the COVID-19 era, Brightline—which bills itself as the only provider of modern, eco-friendly, high-speed rail service in America—resume service today at its Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach stations. Brightline currently serves Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach, with expansion stations in Aventura and Boca Raton opening in 2022. With construction to Orlando on track to be complete by the end of 2022, discussions remain underway with local stakeholders regarding further expansions—to Disney and Tampa. The stylish train line has implemented some major enhancements. Each station features a cashless, touchless environment with new technologies and markets throughout the stations and onboard the trains that will serve to reduce lines and people congregating. The culinary lineup is especially impressive: At MiamiCentral, riders will be welcomed by a new 26,000-square-foot culinary center by C3 called Citizens MiamiCentral. Big-name eats such as Umami Burger, Krispy Rice, Sam’s Crispy Chicken, Cicci di Carne—and new brands including Sa’Moto by Chef Morimoto, EllaMia and Miami Favorite Cindy Lou’s Cookies—will join the center’s original brands (La Estacion, Rosetta Bakery, Patagonia, CAO and Art de Vivre). A branch of Aventura’s popular 800 Degree Woodfired Kitchen is also on the way. The station will also offer a new, modern bar called Mary Mary and an autonomous shop called MRKT. Onboard, riders can expect a reimagined Premium service, previously known as Select. The first-class service includes cold refreshment towels, individual sanitation wipes, a snack basket and complimentary alcoholic beverages at the Premium Lounge. This Premium service will also include AM/PM in-station food snacks and small bites, unlimited nonalcoholic beverages and a reduced-priced menu for purchases. For riders who want to experience a true car-free lifestyle, Brightline is on the case with last-mile service, launching a door-to-door service that brings riders to the stations and delivers them to their final destination. This program will include an expansive fleet of both private and third-party vendor vehicles available through the Brightline app and will further create transportation access to everything from scooters, bikes and electric micro-rides to shuttles and chauffeured Teslas.

When Delivery Dudes was founded in 2009 by Jayson Koss, third-party delivery from multiple vendors through a single platform was the future of delivery. Since 2012, it’s been Oliver Tito’s reality. Born and raised in South Africa where his father owned restaurants, Tito immigrated to the United States in 2000. For 12 years, he immersed himself in the hospitality scene of Vail, Colorado, working for hotels, high-end restaurants, golf courses and for celebrity chef Kelly Liken, of Top Chef and Iron Chef fame. Vail is also where Tito met his future wife; she was from South Florida, so the couple moved here in 2012. It was in Delray Beach that Tito was recruited as one of Delivery Dudes’ first restaurant employees, where he began as a driver, moving up the ladder to sales and management. These days, as vice president of sales, Tito heads up the restaurant division. Where the company made its most recent mark is at the Delray Beach Market; users take advantage of Delivery Dudes’ first-of-its-kind technology to order from as many vendors as they would like during a single transaction, with a choice of delivery or pickup. Developed by Delray Beach-based Menin (Bodega Taqueria y Tequila) and managed by Clique Hospitality (which has partnered with MGM Resorts International, Cosmopolitan Las Vegas and Montage Resorts), Delray Beach Market sprawls over 150,000 square feet, housing eateries such as Alpine 210, Surry Co. Smoke House, Tekka Bar, Salvo’s Pizzeria, Dad’s Favorite Burgers & Pies, Ferdo’s Grill, Tip to Tail, Roots and Incredibowl.
