Thanks to modern technology, we can now order a variety of goods and services, right on the spot.
About 907 Delivery
This company has a unique model wherein all of the drivers are part owners of the company. When asked whether anyone inquiring employment could just enter the company as a contracted driver, Dean Bradshaw – co-owner and co-founder of 907 Delivery – explained that the matter would have to be discussed with all of the owners. Their collective goal is to reach 70% capacity before they would be ready to expand ownership, and they appear to be well on their way.
A new, up and coming enterprise, 907 Delivery has been in business about a year and a half. Before that, 907 was known as “Essential Delivery” and have been rebranding and expanding since. The company’s co-owner boasts hundreds of deliveries per day. 907 Delivery offers more than just food and coffee – a range of goods and services are available for delivery. Services offered through 907 include:
- Gourmet food.
- Car battery jump.
- Prescription medication.
907 Delivery Areas
907 Delivery is true to its name – a delivery service in the 907, and surrounding, area code. It is an incredibly convenient service to the people of Anchorage, AK and neighboring zip codes. As a traveller, this is especially helpful in getting my needs met while visiting this beautiful city.
Although this company is based in Alaska, they are always looking to expand. Bradshaw stated that they’re currently in talks of moving into Fairbanks and Kenai, AK, and eventually into the contiguous 48 states. As of right now, cities in Alaska serviced by 907 Delivery include:
- Eagle River.
907 Delivery Times
Due to their structure, this company takes pride in their quality of service. Every driver represents the brand and is invested in its success. 907 strives to provide a convenient service for its customers and vendors. They try to make certain guarantees when it comes to important factors like added fees and delivery times. The standard quote time for deliveries is 60 minutes, however, their actual goal is to deliver between 30-45 minutes.
A range of factors must be considered when estimating delivery times. Some of 907’s vendors are gourmet restaurants that can take up to 90 minutes even for a pickup order, during peak times. Delivery times are determined by an average, and one of the advantages of 907 is that their owners make sure they are intimately familiar with the area and its businesses.
907 Delivery Fees
Another way they attempt to set themselves apart from the competition is by offering better incentives – in terms of fees – to their vendors. One of their aims is to support local business. This is a major reason why 907 Delivery charges the vendor a fraction of the percentage of some competitors.
Customers are subject to the following fees by 907, currently or in the future:
Currently, the only fees incurred by the customer are delivery and gratuity fees. Gratuity is based on a percentage of the sale, while the delivery fees range anywhere from $8-$20, depending on the area and the business. Some featured and regular businesses actually offer free delivery specials. 907 is considering applying service fees to customers in the future, varying by vendor.
The company is at the beginning of a promising incline to the top of their industry. The most immediate expansion site in the lower 48 is set on Las Vegas, which is a hub for today’s small business enterprises. As a small, tight-knit group, their current process is to have one of 907 Delivery’s current owners explore a market and arrange the expansion. Whichever owner so shall choose will run that market.
907 Delivery is wide open for success. The market is undeniably fertile and the service undeniably valuable.
