One such job I did like was bicycle delivery. But, it was in the Lincoln Park/Lakeview area. And I hated the commute. So, last week, I decided to try my own hand - in my own neighborhood. I made some fliers and went around to the local restaurants, diners and fast food places to offer my new service.
Interestingly enough, two businesses I've wrote about on here a few times, and not all that favorably, decided to give me a shot.
Well, I noticed couple people liked my service enough to Yelp me this week for one of these two spots.
Dan A. said: "I ordered on GrubHub and the food arrived super fast and extremely hot. The delivery guy on the bike was super friendly and made my night. Awesome Job! Thanks Again!
Matt T. said: "The owner is real nice guy and delivery with GrubHub is super fast. So that is a plus." Reviews on Yelp.It bothers me none that the restaurant got the credit on Yelp. After all, it was their great food. And, it's our neighborhood business. I was pleased that my ability to get their food delivered quickly enhanced the buyers satisfaction to look favorably on one of our businesses - and comment about it on a popular and influential review website, like Yelp.
BLOGNOTES: Shameless plug. All you restaurant owners. Are you looking for super fast, super friendly food delivery bikers - who will deliver your food to your customers as hot as it came off the grill? Look no further than right here - in Rogers Park.
Plus, it's an eco-friendly way to have your food delivered. No car. No pollution. No double parking on those narrow streets - pissing off your neighbors who may be trying to get their car out while food is being delivered. I'm reducing the carbon footprint and not hindering anything to our parking problems in the neighborhood, one delivery at a time.
And readers, call Chuckie's, Grill Inn or Morse Gyros - or if you don't like the phone ordering thing - order on Grubhub. Ask for the bike delivery guy. Maybe Mr. Broken Heart will show up quicker than quick, with piping hot food, a smile on his face, bringing you the best food Morse Avenue has to offer.
I even deliver North of Howard!
