Economics students’ business idea delivers
The wheels never stop spinning for Economics students Fez and Sal Rismani. That’s because the entrepreneurial brothers continue to take their delivery business, Daily Delivery, down new roads. Daily Delivery’s logistics platform connects businesses with nearby delivery specialists that provide on-demand customer delivery from stores and services that don’t have drivers, or that typically fall short of drivers.
From a successful pitch on CBC-TV’S “Dragon’s Den,” through SFU’s Coast Capital Savings Venture Connection, and on to a pilot project with Walmart’s e-commerce division, Daily Delivery has grown from serving ‘mom and pop’ shops to serving online ordering platforms such as Just-Eat.ca, Food.ee and YellowPagesDine.
“Pivoting to become a business-to-business, outsourced delivery platform, Daily’s mission has evolved,” says Fez, who is pursuing an honours degree in Economics. “It has become a turnkey solution that empowers partnered retailers to offer an Amazon-like experience to their customers, who can now choose when and where to receive their delivery, track it in real-time, and communicate with the delivery specialists.”
