Our Mission:

Empower.

OrangeCrate is one of the largest independent restaurant delivery services in the United States. We offer a unique business opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs, skilled food service veterans and Uber/Lyft drivers to operate a Restaurant Delivery Service independently under a license from us and be a part of the respected OrangeCrate brand. Imagine the benefits of being in business for yourself with the advantage of the OrangeCrate name and distinctive business model behind you!

If you have a track record of success making other delivery companies, restaurants or ride share services money, OrangeCrate wants to invest in you. Under our business model, we train you to be successful in this market as well as provide all of the backend office and support needs - recruiting drivers, payroll, insurance, dispatchers, national restaurant partnerships, payables and funding food purchases. You partner with drivers 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 FOH 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.

But 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.

Why becoming an independent operator is an incredible deal

Founded in 2015, OrangeCrate is a unique and simple business. Our company works with many national partners like Applebees, IHOP, Hooters and local restaurant owners to bring delivery from their restaurants to our marketing customers.

Ask your average independent contractor delivery driver or FOH manager what they earn in a typical year and the answers range from $25,000 to $40,000. That sounds great until you ask OrangeCrate independent operators what they make in a typical year. And we encourage candidates to do just that. You can call and talk to multiple independent operators and learn from them firsthand how the OrangeCrate opportunity has provided them with a path to financial freedom. There is truly no limit to what an independent operator can earn. For anyone who is motivated to achieve financial success, OrangeCrate offers an amazing opportunity to be your own boss and experience uncapped earning potential - not merely a fixed salary.

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.

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.

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.

LOCATIONS in 2017

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.

 

40

LOCATIONS in 2018

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.

 
 

400+

LOCATIONS IN 2019

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!

Our System

OrangeCrate is dedicated to getting you up and running with your own location in the quickest amount of time. We provide a training manual, a group forum with other owners and one-on-one coaching. You can be up and running within 21 days on average.

 

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.
 

dispatching orders

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.
