Hey Ric,

No doubt there will be challenges whenever you intend to launch a business- online or otherwise.For starters,do you have all the necessary 'equipment' in place?-this means cars or bikes for delivery,the latter are definitely cheaper but that in itself depends upon several factors such as order amount,intended destination and so on.Another thing,how will the customers contact you-email,telephone,social media?These are some of the things that need to be in place to ensure EFFICIENCY-if there's something you'll need, it is efficiency.Speaking of which,you say multiple restaurants-location will be key to ensure customer orders are not delayed.Should have the radius you want to serve in mind by now...
Another aspect regards issues like branding-know several ways you can attract clientele-competition matters too-see what the competitors are doing and figure out a way to differentiate your service delivery.Price cannot be overlooked as well.Are you up to the task of offering the best prices while still able to meet your bottom line?Can economies of scale work?Can you offer free dispatch?Hope these will help you jog the mind a little on what you could have probably overlooked.

The Friendly Team at;

I think the time lag between placing an online order and fulfilling it in real time will be crucial for meeting hot food in time for say, lunch.
