“Takeout Taxi was just a vision in 2011, when we were home one night and hungry for something different. You can only eat so much pizza! We quickly came to realize we couldn’t get our favorite restaurant delivered. “I am sorry sir, we don’t offer delivery.” We then thought, why don’t WE offer delivery? What would it take?
After some research, we decided to just go for it. Let’s put ourselves out there and see what we can come up with.
We started our business in 2012 with 4 restaurants and 3 drivers. In the past 6 years, we have obtained over 15 contracts and are staffing 15 drivers.
We decided to branch out and obtain a liquor delivery license from the Alcohol & Gaming Commission of Ontario. This has proven to be successful with over 5,000 total alcohol deliveries and we have continued to grow from there.
We continued to think, how else can we help? Lets leave our options open and develop a company that can deliver anything… except people.
We have delivered many odds and ends including pet food, car parts and tools, DVDs and CDs, phone chargers, a letter or card, flowers, a celebratory bottle of wine, fuel and much more! As long as it can fit in our vehicles, we can do it!
The best part about this job, is meeting new people and building relationships with regular and new customers, as well as, restaurant owners and entrepreneurs alike.
If you have any ideas on how we can help you, or others like you, please don’t hesitate to send us your ideas! We are just people helping people.”
