How to start your own food delivery business

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, many people lost their jobs. Despite the negativity, if you have the spirit of entrepreneurship, you can use this time to start your own business.

Regardless of the pandemic, there are still many people ordering food from outside. Healthy and sanitary food is at high demand now. So if you are interested in starting your own food business, read on for tips given by Hannaan Jatu, a self-made food entrepreneur.

The key to starting a food business is to be a good cook. Learn and practice your favourite dishes until they are delicious. Your food must be tasty and healthy to get the customer interested. No one will order food from a place where they didn’t like the food. So, practice is key. Do not serve items that you have not perfected.

Masking a menu is important. There is no need to serve every food item you can cook on every single day. You can change your items and make specials for each day.


Never underestimate the power of virtual presence. Have a brand name and image in mind and then spread it using the internet. Using social media pages is one of the best ways to reach a newer audience.

Having a business plan beforehand is crucial. Figure out your target customers and the price range. Are you going to serve super luxury food items or fast food that anyone can afford? It is important to know before starting the business.

Plan out how you will handle your deliveries. Using services like Swiggy Genie and Dunzo can help you take care of local deliveries easily without worry. The advantage is that they will take care of packing as well. They use microwaveable plastic containers approved by the state government. These boxes are reusable; hence people might keep them, so try adding your branding to the boxes to promote it.
