The range of income for the first year will depend on the size of buildings and companies you deliver to. The larger they are, the easier it will be for you to build a regular client base. One of the perks in a delivery service business is that you won’t have to have a storefront location and that will keep your overhead costs down.
You will need to set up an email and fax ordering processes. You might even add local pizza and sandwich shops to your resources, until you have a large enough client base to support your business. This is one business where you’ll want to hire a delivery person as soon as possible. Look for a semi-retired individual. They will prove to be more reliable.
Your clients will mostly consist of small to large size businesses. Your focus should be directed towards a small radius that you would be able to cover easily. Then expand slowly enough so that you can pace your growth.
Your marketing plan will have to include flyers at businesses, emails and faxes. You’ll want to create menus that are easy enough to process the orders. Fewer choices in the beginning will make it easier for you.
