Initial Questions

Eatzy helps you launch and operate your own Restaurant Delivery Service (RDS). Third-party RDS businesses help restaurants grow by delivering the restaurant's food to hungry customers. Restaurants get extra sales without needing extra space or employees.

Eatzy enables you to own your own RDS, building your network of restaurants and drivers. We provide all the technology needed to operate - websites, online ordering, dispatching, delivery apps, etc. And we provide a full suite of support services to enable you to operate your business without investing in office space and hiring a bunch of employees. You pay only for the services you use, as you use them.

Eatzy is a technology platform built just for restaurant delivery since 1998.

We handle all the software configuration of your zones and fees and everything else.
After you sign up a restaurant, we do all the data entry and build the menu, making it quick and easy for you and the restaurant to start working together.
Eatzy provides dispatching and customer service. When orders come in, they are sent to the restaurant and assigned to a driver. The dispatchers make sure that everything is going according to plan. With our predictive alerts, they contact the driver or the restaurant if any step of the process is delayed and take steps to prevent a small problem from turning into a big for the customer.
All the routine work is managed by Eatzy. You don't need to sit and watch for orders to come in, making sure everything is going ok. You don't need to hire staff to manage customer service and run the business.
You spend your time where it matters, growing your driver network and building your relationships with restaurant owners.
You contract Eatzy to provide support services for your business.
You enter into agreements with restaurants under the terms you set. You work with DDN to contract the drivers you need, and you contract Eatzy for the technology and services to run your daily operations.
Delivery Driver Network or DDN is a driver services company. They help independent contractor delivery drivers find work and operate profitably.
You can use DDN to connect your restaurants to drivers.
DDN will provide recruitment, screening and on-boarding; driver apps and scheduling; driver insurance and payment processing.
You can choose to work (or not) with any individual driver from DDN.
And you can set the standards by which they operate with your restaurants and customers.
The most important work that is done by the local owner involves building personal relationships with restaurant owners and with drivers.
You identify the individual restaurants that you want to work with, offer your services, negotiate terms, and then make sure that the restaurant is happy once we're underway.
On the driver side, you help them make money by structuring your fees and zones to balance their needs with those of the restaurants and customers. You make sure drivers know how to provide the level of customer service that leads to the best tips and highest income.  Guide drivers to work in the areas and times of day when delivery is most in demand.
DDN takes care of most of the routine work of hiring drivers.
They do the initial advertising and recruitment and then provide prescreening and gather the necessary documents from drivers. They do phone interviews and answer questions.
DDN handles orientation and on-boarding, getting drivers in the system and ready to work.
Once drivers are ready, they are connected to you. You choose the best path after that - meet them in person, chat on the phone about expectations, or just get them on the schedule ASAP.
After you approve a driver, DDN provides insurance and handles the payouts to drivers are working. You don't need to spend time on the daily or weekly tasks involved in contracting and paying drivers.
No. Eatzy provides dispatching services.
When orders are received, they are sent to the restaurant for preparation and assigned to a driver for delivery. The timing of all tasks is predicted and controlled by our system, and the progress is monitored by dispatchers. If any step of the process looks to be delayed, then the dispatchers will take the necessary actions to prevent it from turning into a problem for the customer.
If there is any more significant problem with your restaurants or drivers, you will be alerted, but all routine order processing is handled without any time or oversight needed from you.
It's really up to you.
When talking to restaurant owners about signing up with you, the afternoon is generally best (the slow time after the lunch rush, before dinner gets started). Some restaurant owners will be available in the morning as well, but there really are not that many hours during the week that are available for your restaurant conversations.
Conveniently, your drivers are working during the hours that are busiest for restaurants, so that can be a good time to contact or meet with drivers, however you see fit.  
Wherever you want.
Look for an area with several independent, locally-owned restaurants nearby. The services we offer are particularly in demand there. The more popular the restaurants, the better, of course.
Chain restaurants are also great for delivery, but the sales process for them can take a long time. Fortunately, through our partnerships you can work seamlessly with many popular chains almost immediately. Any area that has a combination of these chains and independent restaurants presents a great opportunity to launch your delivery service.
No office is needed.
Drivers check in and check out remotely. Customer service and dispatching is provided by Eatzy. There is no other staffing that would require an office.
There are no particular times when you need to be available.
The daily operations are covered by Eatzy, so there are no hours that you need to work to manage the regular operations of the business.
You can set your own schedule for contacting your drivers and restaurants.
Your income is based on the contracts you sign with restaurants and on the order volume that your drivers deliver.
If you contract with restaurants at 20% and pay Eatzy 10%, your income is 10% of the orders delivered. If the average order is $40.00, you make $4.00 per order.
The number of orders you deliver daily will depend on the number of restaurants you sign, the popularity of those restaurants and the area your are in. If you work with 20 restaurants, and they deliver an average of 3 orders per day, then you would be making $4 per order times 60 orders, or $240 in a day.
The driver costs are generally covered by the delivery fee charged to the customer, and the costs of operating the daily business are covered by the 10% to Eatzy, so that difference in percentage is your income.
Typically you will not have any employees.
Your drivers are independent contractors and you do not need to hire any dispatchers or customer service personnel since Eatzy provides those services for you.
You can, but it's not common, especially when starting out.
Contact us and we'll work with you to move you through each of the steps as quickly as possible. You can be in business in just a couple of weeks. See more here.
