Welcome to the team!
Along with opening a new location comes a great deal of responsibility, but it’s probably more simple than you’d imagine! Before getting your first order, you’ll need to get a few things out of the way first, but these simple steps should make the start up process a breeze! We have an abundance of material that will help you with all of these tasks along the way, but for right now we will focus on getting that first order.
1. Sign Up As a Driver
First things first, lets get you ready to deliver. Follow the link below to sign up as a driver and order your driver bag and credit card. Once delivered, you’ll receive you credentials and download links for all the required apps a driver needs to deliver. Driver Logic, When I Work, and Jobble. This will also get you familiar with how signing up works which you’ll want to explain to potential drivers during interviews. If the interview goes well, you’ll send them to this exact link.
2. Build your city
We’ve got this part covered, just submit your start up form below! We’ll set up the location zoning, the hours of operation, delivery fee structure, restaurant profiles, driver profiles, your administrative account, etc. The location will be set up to a “cookie cutter” standard that typically works well in most locations, but keep in mind that you can work alongside your district manager to adjust this set up to better fit your location’s needs. For now, here’s how we will start out:
3. Get the tools you need
You’ll need a couple programs to assist you in handling the day to day operations of an OrangeCrate location. Thankfully, we can hook you up! Submit the form below to request your various account credentials! We’ve also added a brief description of each.
4. Choose your restaurants
You’ll need to choose the restaurants you’d like to have available to your customers before starting out. It’s important to be sure that the restaurant does offer take-out, and has a reasonable customer rating. If customers haven’t been happy when visiting the restaurant, they probably won’t enjoy it being delivered either. There is no limit on the number of restaurants you can add, but we suggest to include at least 2 restaurants for each cuisine type. Watch the video find out exactly what information we will need for each restaurant, and how you can obtain that info! Once completed please send your list to Wayne@myorangecrate.com
5. Choose a launch date
Once the restaurants, social media (advertising outlets), and scheduling software have been set up, you’re actually ready to receive your first order, and how you go about starting out is 100% your decision. If you’re ready to deliver yourself then go ahead and get started on spreading the word, and be sure to be available for orders! If you’re planning on having other drivers available to fill your schedule first, then let us know what day you plan to open, publish the shifts for that first week, and we will begin recruiting drivers for you. Keep in mind that bringing drivers on board can be a lengthy process so try to give us some time. We can never ensure that enough drivers will sign up but we will do our best!
The only thing left to do now is to monitor your schedule to ensure that either you or another driver is available at all times. Advertise on Facebook by using the material and tips we supply you with, and reach out to some restaurants to get them on board with what we’re doing. We will supply material to help with this as well. If you can keep these things in order, you’ll have an abundance of orders being delivered in no time! The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to operating an OrangeCrate location, so set a goal now for how many orders you plan to have completed within a month. The info you’ll find here will helpo, and so will your district manager!
