Hello, Toronto!

Been so long, readers! How have you all been? Yes, we’ve been missing in action here for quite some time now. However, if you’ve been following us on our Social Media, you would know how busy we’ve been. So much has happened in the past few months that we’ll just stick to giving you a quick brief of what’s cooking at Team Daily Headquarters.

Yeah, Headquarters. Our Vancouver office is now our Head Office as we enter newer markets.

Exploring new waters and venturing into new territories is our plan of action for this year. We spent Winter 2016 planning our moves and now, with Spring, we’ve sprung into action.

To start our journey out of our home city, we decided on Toronto as the first stop. It took us some intense manpower, a great deal of planning, a whole lot of emails and a couple of tedious weeks to settle in. Now that we have settled in, we are beginning to replicate our Vancouver operations in Tdot.

The highlight of our Toronto move? Walmart!

How convenient is it to shop for your groceries while sitting in the comfort of your house? Super convenient, we say. Walmart heard you and have launched their Grocery Home Delivery services. Before you get too happy, it’s only in Toronto for now.
Being their delivery partner, we help fulfill numerous delivery orders throughout the day. So, just with the click of a button or tap on the app, you’ll have all your groceries delivered to your door steps in no time.
Here are some behind the scenes pictures of us going about our daily tasks with Walmart.

Apart from Walmart, we are also in talks with various other partners to make sure that the Bowtie Squad becomes recognizable in Toronto.

So, if you are a restaurant or store looking to partner with us, sign-up now on http://dailydelivery.ca/merchants.php

And, if you are a Delivery Specialist, get started with us on http://dailydelivery.ca/drivers.php

Let’s all join forces to make the Toronto chapter of Team Daily a success!

Wait, before we sign-off, here’s a BIG, WARM, HEARTFELT Thank You to everyone who has been supporting and encouraging us so far. Yes, we are talking about you, you and you, too.
Without you all, there’s no Team in Team Daily.

That’s all folks, we’ll now get back to planning some more awesomeness. Until next time 🙂

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!)

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 😉

It is DD time for Dragon’s Den!

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 😉
