What do geekmom’s do when it’s too hot to cook? We order food online. No, it’s not what you think. We don’t always order pizza, we order Chinese, Indian, Italian, and more!
I first tried foodler.com, but they didn’t have anything in my area. Then I tried eat24hours.com and this company had at least 20 restaurants near my location. I suppose many of these places would deliver any way, but why not try it?
What I want is a food delivery service where I order online and the person drives out to get it. Then I can order whatever I want, whenever I want. What foodler.com and eat24hours.com should do is get restaurants to advertise on their site and then pay people in their area that can jump on the go to pick it up for others. Of course, that is going to be difficult when covering so many cities, but I’m sure in this economy that people are willing to do stranger things to make money.
After almost15 years of the www’s existence and over almost 40 years of the Internet’s presence, you would think the online ordering problem would have been eliminated. I guess we can always dream.
I know I get quite a few small business owners reading my blog, why not make your own food ordering place in your area. I’d blog about you here so that people know about you. I’d tweet your name out and make sure you were able to get lots of press. You could offer $5.00 trips on fiverr.com while building your business and eventually take orders over paypal and hire others to do the driving for you.
Small business. What a concept!
