Daily Delivery on Dragons’ Den, Again!

Don’t we all just love Dragons’ Den? We do!
Don’t you all love Team Daily? If you are reading this blog, chances are that you do!

How about having Team Daily on Dragons’ Den again? Oh, not a repeat of the old segment but an entirely new segment? Sure, you would say.

Alright, alright, we did listen to you and so did CBC. Since our Stache Boys received a lot of love (read deals) in the Den, they decided to bring us back to your screens this year. This year? This week. Oh, this Wednesday, actually.

Now that we have pitched to the dragons and secured a deal, what are we doing in the Den this week? Read on to find out.

Some time during the sleepy winter months of 2015, we were asked by Dragons’ Den to film a follow-up segment. Just about a month into our first-ever television appearance, we were asked to prep-up for the second one already. We were excited. All the more happier since the filming was to take place in our office and our entire team was going to be a part of it.

From getting the haircuts right to keeping the stache stiff, the boys were preparing to show the camera a day in the life of Team Daily. Not a whole day but the busiest and the most important part of the day.

An early start to the day and seeing the filming equipment around, we were a little goofy.

Lights, Camera, Mics, Director, Dragon, we felt as if we were being a part of the next big blockbuster.

We did carry on normally with our daily activities but just had some extra guests and cameras watching us this time around.

Did we do anything special? We officially welcomed Michele to Team Daily. Got her to see the action at the Rabbit Hole first hand and made her a part of the action, too. Without giving out the details, let’s just say that our very dear partners Thierry and De Beers were involved.

The hustle bustle, the laughter, the activity and the red all over made us feel like Christmas had come in early.
After a whole day of filming, we were tired but thrilled to show everyone what Team Daily is usually up to when not talking to you.

See you all on CBC this Wednesday! Do tell us how we did especially the team members since the Stache bros are used to the limelight now 😉

It’s Showtime!

If you know us, you would know that tonight’s The Night.

We are airing tonight on Dragons’ Den’s Premiere episode. Yes, Dragons’ Den and the Premiere episode. We are way too excited than we actually should be.

Now, whatever goes on in the Den, you will be able to catch it on TV. But, what about the things that happened while we were filming? What do you expect to see on the Den? This question and that question. Hold on!

We are here to update you.

Let’s get started from the beginning.
(After all, what is a story without an awesome start?)

A few months back, we were busy sharing our preparations with you. Didn’t we prepare oh-so-perfectly for the Den?
To jog your memory, some pictures of us preparing for the show.

The boys really worked hard

The Team working hard.

It’s all about the numbers, you see!

After planning, preparing and practicing, we finally met with the Dragons.

When Daily Delivery met with the Dragons, this is what happened.

How sharp do they look?

We are here to pitch and pitch with confidence. Oh, pitching to the Dragons involves a lot of fun (if you know what we mean!)

All eyes on Us.

But did we impress the Dragons? You will have to find out on tonight’s episode.

Finally, being the soft souls that we are, we are again going to be thanking all the amazing folks who have helped us and are continuously helping us to reach greater heights.

Here is a BIG THANK YOU going out to you, you, yes, you, too!

In short, a BIG THANK YOU to All Our Investors, Our Customers, Our Partners, Our Delivery Specialists, Our Internal Team and Our Well-wishers 🙂
You all inspire us day in and day out to better and better.

p.s. Do not forget to watch us getting grilled by the Dragons tonight 😉

Planning, Packing, Pitching! It is THAT time already

*Thinking to self* Yeah, the pitch went well. Joe is oh-so impressed with our Signature bow-ties! And the ladies, they are just bowled over by our charm!

“…and for that reason, I am out!” No, do not say no. Oh %&$@! This is not happening, this is not happening!

*Phone rings*

OH! That was a nightmare *wipes sweat off forehead*

You read that right, these are the nightmares our Boys have been having from the past couple of days. But if our preps are anything to go by, this is exactly what will NOT happen when we appear on The Den in a couple of days time!

Having seen our preparations already (You did not?! Time to check that blog, too!), we now present to you what are we packing for the Den.

Numbers? Check!

Numbers

Extra Bag? What?! We will get paid by cheque, right?

MoneyBag

Bow-tie Swag? Check!

All the other things? Check!

Gearing up for Toronto weather? Check!

We clearly are very well-prepared for the Toronto weather! 😉

Our Hearts for the Dragon’s? CHECK!

We Are Ready! Bring It On, We Say!

Be prepared to be thrilled, Dragons! 😉

 

Behind the Scenes at Daily’s Den for Dragon’s Den

Spring is here and Summer is near but these are not the seasons we are concerned with right now!

The only season we are concerned with is the Season 10 of CBC’s Dragon’s Den (You knew this was coming, didn’t you?! 😉 )

We are sure that by now you know that we have been preparing and counting days to the D-day (get it?!)

Since Team Daily is all about team-building, group-work and the community, we thought it would just be right for us to give you guys a sneak-peek into our preparations.

Caution – The below preps are not your regular run-of-the-mill preps

Let us get started with the, hhmm, looks?!

Workout (Yes, they workout and how! Pumping hard to face the Dragons, you see!)

Do stripes look better or should we choose plain shirts?! (We will have LOTS of ladies, erm, people watching us on National TV!)

20150414_122801

Blazer? Hoodie? This one or that one? (Colors do have an effect on your psychology!)

20150414_123423

The BOW-TIES!! Our hearts belong to the bowties.

This or That?!  (Our Boys will put their best bow-ties forward!)

We are sure that by now you all know that we have been selected for CBC’s Dragon’s Den! (Whaaaat?! You did not know it?! Well, now you do so smile! 🙂 )

Since we are soo excited about this, we decided to share our excitement with you and talk more about being chosen to face THE Dragons.

Just like all of you, we are also avid followers of the Dragon’s Den. Having watched numerous episodes and most of their seasons, we thought it would be fun auditioning for it. So, one fine afternoon when we learnt that Dragon’s Den will be auditioning in Vancouver, we leapt with joy, literally. Yeaa, that was one thing off of our bucket-list!

Prior to the auditions, we were sitting and wondering about what really sets us apart from the many other businesses that have been on the show! Then we realized how Daily Delivery or Team Daily (as we like to call ourselves) is more than just another business. Our love for the community, food, saving time and engaging with others helped us conceive Daily Delivery. We are just as passionate about the local community and our service, as an author would be for writing!
With each passing day, our ideas, plans and actions are all geared towards making the lives of all of us easier and simpler in these stressful times (Yes, we totally get the looming deadlines!)

During auditions, it was our love for what we do that helped us to get selected for Dragon’s Den. Now, we will show the entire country how a business can be successful by having your heart in the right place (Credit has to be given to our Founders for being soo charming, erm…..hardworking! 😉 )

Without getting emotional, (c’mon, it is just a TV show that we got selected for!) we would like to thank our phenomenal Internal Team (We love you, guys!), our team of fantastic Delivery Specialists (You have made Team Daily what it is today!), our amazing Customers (You are the reason we exist!) and our super-supportive Partners (You all rock!).

Congratulations all! *sending some virtual hugs*

With this, it is now time to get back to business and plan how to tame those Dragons 😉
