You’ll also receive all the support you need when starting a franchise with One Delivery, including marketing material to promote your business within your local community.
How it works
It couldn't be easier or quicker for customers to order their favourite foods to be delivered straight to their door. They log onto the One Delivery website, place their order, then sit back and wait for their food. The seamless service also allows them to track the location of their food, so they know when to expect it.
The process is pretty straightforward for participating restaurants too. They receive a real-time update when an order is placed and then can print it out at the tap of a button to give to kitchen staff. When the order is nearly ready the restaurant notifies a driver that collection is needed. When the driver arrives, specialist equipment is used to keep the food fresh and hot while it's on its way to the customer's address.
As a franchisee, your profit comes from a margin placed on the food of approximately 20% as delivery is free. This is a great franchise opportunity that benefits local restaurants, the customer and you.
There are over 65 franchisees that have already invested in this delivery franchise. There are many reasons that franchisees have given for choosing One Delivery. Here are just a few:
The demand is out there
Jeremy from Nottingham become a franchisee in August 2014. He was understandably nervous when he first invested as there was no guarantee that his business was going to take off. However, thanks to the massive demand for a fast and reliable delivery service, Jeremy is doing between 20 and 30 deliveries every night. And with no signs of demand slowing down, Jeremy couldn’t be happier that he decided to take a risk on One Delivery.
It’s a simple concept
Dean started his franchise in Cardiff in May 2014 as he wanted to earn a bit of extra cash. But thanks to the simple concept and straightforward business model, Dean has quickly grown his franchise and now manages a team of delivery drivers. Fulfilling hundreds of deliveries every month, Dean has been able to leave his salaried job to become a full-time franchisee.
Support is on hand whenever it’s needed
Tom began his journey as a One Delivery franchisee in June 2015 in Southend. Having never owned a business before, Tom was concerned that he wouldn't have the necessary skills and experience to make his franchise a success. Tom needn't have worried though. The support and advice that he's received from One Delivery have been first class, and Tom is excited about the developments and marketing activity that the business is investing in to raise awareness of the brand even more. This level of support and advertising are elements of a business that Tom would have missed out on if he'd decided to open an independent venture.
Starting a franchise with One Delivery is much more affordable than you’d think. In fact, you could be your own boss in return for a franchise fee of just £995.00.
The management fee is £75 per month plus a 5% - 12% fee on credit card orders. The remainder is yours to keep and, based on other franchisees, you’re likely to turn a profit by month three.
And the future looks bright. The average person in the UK spends a whopping £110 or more every month on takeaways. With the average order value for One Delivery customers at £23.00, you can make between £8 and £9 for every delivery.
This has led to many franchisees achieving a turnover of £35,000 plus in their first year. In fact, this is just a fraction of what can be earned by dedicated and hardworking franchisees. Some One Delivery franchisees have reported that they're expecting to turnover more than £100,000 in their first year of trading.
The UK restaurant food delivery sector is now valued at over £5bn and growing so now is the time for you to sink your teeth into this food delivery franchise.
