Own A Delivery Service
Own A Delivery Service
Delivering Restaurant Food & Catered Meals

Our Mission:


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.

What does it cost?

We value independent operators who are willing to dedicate whatever time it takes to run an efficient location. This is not a business for absentee owners. It’s important to talk to us because even if you only have a little capital to invest, what we really care about is your drive, determination and ability to learn. Then, the startup cost is nothing.

Which Territories Are Available?

OrangeCrate is a company that is aggressively expanding throughout the United States. You can find us in Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Utah. We are open to any of the 50 states with a city that has a population of at least 15,000 people.



From 2015 to 2017, we developed the original location in Ramona, CA and then tested duplication of our efforts in three additional cities outside of California.

Once those were successful, we increased the size of our test to include more new locations for OrangeCrate.




In 2018, we opened an additional 36 locations, constantly fine-tuning our process, our growth continuing to accelerate, as operators opened additional locations in nearby cities. That’s something we encourage all of our operators to do, to grow their markets and expand into new locations, fully funded by us as we did their first location.




By the end of this year, we’ll be in more than 400 locations across the country. That’s a lot of opportunity for the right partners with OrangeCrate!

partnering with drivers

Your delivery business can’t work unless you partner with drivers. We teach you how to recruit, how to retain, and how to ensure that every order gets delivered in a timely manner.

We provide two independent US-based dispatch teams to make sure all orders that come through your location are handled with professionalism. If a customer has a question, we have someone to answer their calls and make sure they are treated well.

national partners

We have national restaurant partnership agreements with many of the top restaurants in the country. When you start up a new location, we’ll tap into that network to give you a headstart.

selling delivery to restaurants

Knowing how to sell our marketing and delivery services to local restaurants is the key to success. We’ll walk you through every step of getting a new restaurant on-board, from contract to equipment to menu building. It’s all part of what we do.
