8 Food Delivery Business Success Stories [2022]
Start A Food Delivery Business

Starting a food delivery business is the perfect way to combine your passion for cooking with your desire to make money. You'll get to create delicious new dishes, and then you'll get to deliver them directly to the people who are going to enjoy them. It's a win-win!

In the present day's busy lifestyles and schedules, cooking is no longer a priority to many. People like to order-in food from their nearest restaurants or food joints and enjoy a meal in the comfort of their homes.

The food delivery business is like a courier service through which the restaurants deliver food to their customers.

If you have a truck, you can offer retail food delivery services to restaurants within your locality. Customers make orders through a restaurant or grocer’s website, and the owners contact you to make the delivery.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a food delivery business:

My name is Cameron and I am the name and co-founder behind Cameron’s Seafood. We catch, cook, chill, pack, and ship Maryland Crabs and crab cakes to your doorstep (to all 50 states) on a date you choose. Our food is made daily and shipped fresh, not frozen in less than 24 hours.

Case Study

Hello! My name is Lyla and I am the founder and owner Full Belly Fare, Handcrafted Dinners Delivered, in Portland, Oregon. We offer an array of delicious food products, with a menu that emphasizes organic ingredients, changes weekly, is customizable to nearly any special diet and is hand-delivered to customers’ homes or places of business once per week.

When Full Belly Fare opened in 2014, we made deliveries to an average of 10 households per week. Now we average 35 or 50 households per week, and we’ve also expanded our menu beyond a few weekly meals to include a wide array of “pantry” items that are available every week and make our customers’ lives even easier!

3. Spork Bytes ($3M/year)

Tim Taylor (from Portland, Oregon, USA) started Spork Bytes over 8 years ago.

Revenue
$250K / month
Team
2 founders / 7 employees
Location
Portland, Oregon, USA

Case Study

It’s lunchtime at the office. Everyone is hungry and anxious for a break from the workday. The team walks into the kitchen only to find it’s pizza for lunch. Again. Or maybe instead of pizza it’s a bland boxed-lunch style sandwich. Either way, these types of mundane meals repeat themselves in offices on a daily basis.

Our initial funding came in the form of a $15,000 loan from friends and family. We were able to pay that off in the first year and Spork Bytes has been profitable since then. Annual revenue was $2 Million in 2018 and we’re on pace to exceed $3 Million in 2019 thanks to an average growth rate of 50 percent over the last three years.

4. Send Eats ($4.62M/year)

Chris Koerner (from Dallas, TX, USA) started Send Eats almost 3 years ago.

Revenue
$385K / month
Team
2 founders / 8 employees

Case Study

My name is Chris Koerner and I run Send Eats with my co-founder Kirk Salisbury. Send Eats does lightning-fast order fulfillment for eCommerce brands. Our customers are primarily Shopify store owners that would rather spend time growing and marketing their business as opposed to packing boxes all day.

This business was started by accident in late 2019 when a friend asked for help selling his product online. I helped him as a favor, but when COVID-19 hit I saw that eCommerce would quickly be playing a much bigger role in our lives than it had previously. Throughout 2020 we went from packing dozens of orders per month to tens of thousands of orders per month.
