Food CouriersOctober 25th, 2012
Say hello to Bristol’s newest restaurant food ordering and delivery platform – and one with a green focus.
After a successful pre-launch trial in August 2012, the new online platform that facilitates the delivery of food from fine dining restaurant has now fully launched in Bristol. FoodCouriers.com aims to provide gourmet meals to Bristol’s hungry diners – and from restaurants that do not normally offer such a service.
“We’re very excited to have finally launched the platform”, says FoodCouriers founder Dotun Olowoporoku, Many people in Bristol enjoy takeaway and home-delivered food as an alternative to cooking or eating out, but there seems to be a gap in the market. Were aiming to open up opportunities for Bristols top restaurants to offer home delivery to their customers. FoodCouriers will take care of customer orders and delivery, leaving the restaurants to do what they do best: cook great food.
Bristolians can already order food for delivery – either online or over the phone – from Old India, The Burger Joint, Kathmandu, Obento, Warren’s Gourmet Burger Company, Rupsha, The Lanes, Pho Hanoi, Myristica, Salvatore Kitchen, Creole Brasserie and Filini Italian Restaurant at the Radisson Blu.
FoodCouriers also intends to spice up the food served at corporate meetings and events in Bristol. The platform will provide business event organisers with access to hundreds of online menus from some of Bristols finest restaurants which can be conveniently ordered to be delivered at the time they set.
Providing great food to Bristol’s residents and offices is not the only thing on Dotun’s agenda. “We aim to create jobs…and we have! Since we started, we’ve hired 16 delivery drivers and riders, 3 customer service advisors and 2 account managers – and we certainly see this number growing in the future.”
Unlike many other delivery companies, FoodCouriers pride themselves on their environmental ethics, aiming to complete as many deliveries as possible using sustainable modes of transport. “Most orders within a two mile radius of the restaurants will be delivered by either bike or electric bike”, says Dotun. “Thanks to a grant from the Local Sustainable Transport Fund through Bristol City Council, we are able to buy our first electric bikes to revolutionise the way in which we deliver to our customers.”
