food. What you do is come to an agreement with the restaurants you plan to include
in the service. You compile all their menus into a booklet. Then you distribute
the booklets to the homes and offices in your service area. When customers call
you to make an order, you will in turn call the restaurants and relay the1 order.
You or your staff will then pick up the food from the restaurants and deliver
it to the customer. You will of course include a mark-up for providing the service.

in a car or van - you don't want to get stuck in a jam. For a bigger profit
margin, you could try negotiating with the restaurants to give you a special
price, minus the service charges and the hidden costs. After all, you ARE helping
them get business!
