Online food business is the trend these days. Months of being stuck at home may more often than not result in ordering food online. While this may sound exciting at first, days of doing so will eventually tire our palates out. With this in mind, Xpress Eats, a food online delivery in Davao budded. We offer authentic Filipino home cooked meals you deserve. Too tired to cook a quick lunch? No worries! We have you covered.
We started in the midst of a pandemic and have been striving since then. Here are a few tips from experts all over the world that we kept by heart when we started our humble food online business:
Always start with a concrete and comprehensive business plan. What makes you unique? What is your story? Choose your niche, what elevates you from the others? Establish the market you want, the concept you’ll stick to, the budget you’ll adhere to, and the business structure. This is a core step in the early stages of planning. Before we offered our services to you, we made sure to sit down and figure all these out. The goal was simple: your safety is our utmost priority.
Conduct a diligent market research. It is important to check out all the other businesses like yours. The food industry can be quite competitive. So make sure to give yourself time and an opportunity to pick the brains of local business people in the food industry and see what works and what doesn’t. Through doing this, we at Xpress Eats were able to know more about our clients and what they need at these times. Fast work environment and an intimate party, we were quick to address each.
Make a list of everything you need to establish. It’s clear that your starting a food business checklist will vary based on your concept, size, and of course menu. The point of using a list like this is, to consider every aspect of opening a food and beverage business. It’s not a step that should be taken lightly, but with the right planning, you’ll have the tools you need to be successful. This list will be important even through the years because you will always go back to it. There are some really hard days. But whenever we go back to the list we made and the feedback you have given us, it makes us want to do and be better in our service.
Promote the business as much as you can. Tap into your group of friends and other business owners. According to Erin Fuller, executive director of the National Association of Women Business Owners, this was how she was able to get her first client. According to Stephen Hall, author of From Kitchen to Market, hand out free samples of your food at local fairs and farmer markets. Also consider social media platforms. This is the reason why as you may already know, Xpress Eats is religiously updating our accounts. We want you to know that whenever things can be quite overwhelming, we are here to reach out.
