One World Café has been a mainstay at Main and University since it opened as a one-room coffee shop in the early ‘90s. For the last 25 years, it’s been a cultural and culinary hotspot for an eclectic mix of Peorians—presenting globally inspired flavors in an approachable way. Well known for its diverse menu and colorful atmosphere, it’s a great place to entertain clients or work remotely.
While the popular restaurant has long fulfilled carryout orders—and more recently added delivery through the likes of Grubhub and DoorDash—these dimensions of the business took on added significance during the COVID-19 lockdown. Faced with this existential threat, One World stepped up its game, taking its carryout service to new heights during the pandemic.
