Have you ever been stuck at the office, typing away at the computer, too busy to answer that grating rumble from your stomach? Don’t have enough time to go eat? Have the food delivered to you with the food delivery service, delivery.com! Launched in the Liberty County area in July, delivery.com works to deliver food to people from Midway to Long County, including Fort Stewart.
Once Hinesville Takeout before merging, the local delivery.com branch is owned by Hinesville native and military veteran Gavin Perryman, who especially wanted to integrate local businesses into the food service industry. The 18 drivers employed in the area are locally hired as well, Perryman stating that he has numerous employees to maintain better delivery times. Perryman also said that on an average week, delivery.com brings in about $16,000 and receives about 500 delivery requests, though they are currently in a slow season.
Delivery.com operates from 8 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. from Sunday-Thursday and 8 a.m. to 10:45 p.m. Friday-Saturday. Described as being focused on local restaurants like Izola’s Country Cooking, BBQ Heaven and Chopsticks Café, they also work with larger businesses such as McDonald’s and McAlister’s Deli. “We are what allow mom and pop shops to compete,” said Perryman, comparing delivery services like Uber Eats and DoorDash to Wal-Mart.
Customers can order through the delivery.com website or through the recommended app which can be downloaded through the Apple App Store or through Google Play. There is a $10 minimum for orders, and first time users are required to pay with credit card or PayPal. This is to prevent credit card fraud and protect the business from responding to false orders.
Aside from restaurant deliveries, Perryman stated that he is looking into expand his business to laundry and groceries. Perryman believes that these services will be highly appealing to soldiers, especially single soldiers who need clean uniforms but don’t always have the time to go and have them cleaned. But for now, delivery.com only offers food delivery.
It is important to note that despite its website’s claim, deliver.com does not deliver alcohol to its Georgia customers. It is illegal to do so in Georgia, along with delivering cigarettes, according to Perryman, so this aspect of the service isn’t available. This doesn’t take away from delivery.com’s appeal, however. In fact, Perryman prides his business on customer satisfaction and personally calls disgruntled customers himself. “We are what Uber [Eats] aspires to be,” Perryman laughed.
For a limited time, first time users of delivery.com will be able to get $10 off of their first order of $15 or more by using the code “ORDERNOW”.
