OrangeCrate is one of the largest independent restaurant delivery services in the United States. We offer a unique business opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs to operate a Restaurant Delivery Service independently under a license from us and be a part of the respected OrangeCrate brand.
If you have a track record of success other delivery or ride share companies such as Lyft, GrubHub, Amazon, etc., or if you have restaurant related experience, OrangeCrate wants to invest in you. Under our business model, we train you to be successful as well as provide all of the backend office and support needs - recruiting drivers, payroll, insurance, dispatchers, national restaurant partnerships, payables and the funding of food purchases. You partner with drivers, ensure deliveries are made and build restaurant relationships, and then we share the profits according to our commission structure. We each assume different risks but share the rewards.
OrangeCrate makes a considerable investment into each independent operator, providing them with the potential to earn significantly more than a typical restaurant employee or delivery driver, while sparing them from the tens of thousands of investment dollars it would take to start up your own restaurant delivery service.
Ask any of our independent operators what their first impression of the OrangeCrate opportunity was and they’ll tell you it sounded too good to be true. There must be a catch.
They’ll go on to tell you there is no catch, and their decision to become an independent operator of an OrangeCrate location was the best career move they’ve ever made. The only regret most of them have is they didn’t do it sooner.
The forecast for delivery is very strong in 2019 and beyond
50 percent of dinners purchased from restaurants these days are consumed at home, and this number is only expected to grow. As Bonnie Riggs, analyst for NPD Group’s Commercial Foodservice division sums it up: “The most popular place to eat out this year will be our home.”
What makes this number even more interesting is that besides the delivery segment, no growth is forecasted across the restaurant industry. This means that restaurants, and chains in particular, need to quickly react to these user trends and step up their delivery efforts.
Speed and convenience are the two major driving forces behind this shift in consumer behavior, and technology is the enabler making it happen. Digital ordering has posted rapid growth in the last five years, with recent data revealing that it represents 53 percent of all delivery orders, up from 33 percent in 2013.
While historically pizza and Asian food were the main choices for take out, the range of cuisine alternatives has expanded to virtually any type of food – the growth in food delivery is too big for restaurants to miss and the demand for convenience and choice is bigger than ever. For restaurants that don’t want to build their own fleet of drivers, OrangeCrate makes it easier for any restaurant to get some skin in the game – even if they have to sacrifice some of their profit margins.
The new reality for the industry is that delivery is no longer an additional service, but a major (if not the biggest) source of revenue growth.
