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 🙂

You Were Fantastic, 2015!

Full of surprises, Fantastic and Fabulous! These three words sum up 2015 for Team Daily. As a startup, each day is a different adventure and we have thoroughly enjoyed the last 365 days.

Every day, it is the trust of our Customers, hard work of our Delivery Specialists and the backing of our Internal Team that keeps us going.

Before we begin to talk about the remarkable things that Team Daily did in 2015, we would like to thank everyone for their support. Going by the things we have planned for 2016, be assured, you will only be proud of us.

Our year began with some press coverage. Being one of the first times, we were ecstatic. Thank you Business in Vancouver and 24Hrs Vancouver for making our year start on a  news-tastic note. Both these articles spoke about Team Daily, our business model and scooters. You would have seen our scooters throughout Downtown. But, have you spotted our Smart? You should have in the past year. Smart was one of the firsts to join Team Daily in 2015.

As we were working on serving more clients and engaging with more customers, we happened to audition for Dragons’ Den.
What happened after the auditions, you have seen it and lived it with us. From preparing to packing to pitching, Dragons’ Den definitely kept us on our feet throughout the year. Thank you Michelle & Joe for believing in Team Daily.

Yes, we were pitching and were pitching about how we are growing by leaps and bounds. Our move to the new office highlights our growth. Spacious and colorful, our new office is helping our team work and connect better. Talking about the Team, from developers to dispatchers and interns, we on-boarded new team members and cannot be more happy to have all of them around.

When you have such supporting people around, celebrating your first time on National Television turns out be even better. This is exactly what happened with us when we hosted our Dragons’ Den Viewing Party at the Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar. We would like to thank everyone who attended it and cheered for us. Your belief in us makes us want to achieve more every single day.

Being on National Television has it’s perks. Not only do people recognize our ‘Stache Brothers’ more, articles about Team Daily in different publications are making us humble. Thank you SFU, BCTIA, Financial Post, and BetaKit for writing about the essence of Team Daily.

The true essence of Team Daily is serving our vast array of clients. 2015 has been lucky for us since we partnered up with many stores throughout the year. From Chocolate stores to Boutiques to Florists and Catering Services, we now work with the best names in Vancouver. Naming few of them would be unfair so here is thanking all of you for trusting the Bow-tie Squad. Your experience with Team Daily will only get better with time.

If it is Team Daily, it is about the Community. This year, too, we were involved with different community initiatives. We were proud partners of this year’s edition of TEDxSFU. We would like to applaud their organizing committee for making the event a success this year again.

Another initiative that got us involved with the community was the Startup’s Care run for the Vancouver Food Bank. We are grateful for this opportunity, Startup’s Care.

While we are busy serving partners in Vancouver, we are also thinking about the partners in Toronto, Montreal and Seattle. 2016 will see us working with more partners, serving more customers and expanding our army of Delivery Specialists.

Since our year started on a terrific note, thanks to Dragons’ Den, we ended it on a shoot-tacular note. (Spoiler Alert) Some more airtime on National Television? Sure!

All in all, 2015 was an amazing year for us. Going by our strategies, 2016 is going to the Real Game!

Hope it is the same with all of you.

As we like to say, here is wishing you all A Happy, Rocking & Delicious New Year! 🙂

Hello Seattle, Toronto and Montreal!

This Summer has really been very busy for your Team Daily. In just the last post, we were talking about the highlights of our Summer and now we are back again with some major announcement.

But hey, hold on, this is just a part of the many more exciting announcements that we will be making in the coming few weeks.

And if you have read our last blogpost, you would know that we have a big surprise for you and this is just Part 1 of it.

Although the title screams it out loud and clear, let’s still make it official, Team Daily has a finalized list of the next three markets it would be launching next… Seattle, Toronto and Montreal.
C’mon, make some noise for the Bowtie Squad *drum rolls*

The whole team has been working day in and day out to get everything in place so that our new customers also experience nothing but the best.

From partners to customer groups, from prices to promotional material, from delivery specialists to bowtie designs, we have been carefully analyzing and planning for each of these elements.

In the first leg of our launch, we will be launching Downtown Toronto, Downtown Seattle, and Downtown Montreal.  Now you would be wondering why Seattle, Toronto and Montreal?

Seattle because we love our neighbours. Aside from some of our existing partners, it is closer in proximity to Vancouver, similar weather conditions (Rain, WE LOVE U) it will be easier for us to test waters before we look into entering other markets.

If we are to capture the National market, no better place than Toronto. Having a strong base in Vancouver and Toronto will be the beginning of us seizing the on-demand delivery scene of Canada.

Moving into Montreal is only going to help us establish ourselves better in the East Coast along with Toronto.

This year has been very eventful and the next year is going to be phenomenal since – you got that right – we will be launching in more cities. We are looking to gain a strong foothold in the National Market and also moving into other markets across the board. More cities mean covering more neighbourhoods which results in more convenience for everyone.

While looking to capture new markets, we are opening up another round of investment to strengthen our presence in the current market. So, BIG things are on the way… so be prepared to experience Daily’s magic in the coming year.

To the awesome folks in Seattle, Toronto and Montreal –

And on that note, See You Soon Seattle, Toronto and Montreal folks!

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!

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 😉

 

With Soccer vs Hockey this weekend, we can’t pick our favorite!

For the love of sports in Vancouver, here at Daily Delivery we thought it would be extremely appropriate to discuss both soccer and hockey in our lovely city.

With the Whitecaps home opener under the belt and the Canucks still in battle for playoffs, we are dying of excitement already!

Some people (if not most) looooove hockey, and some (if not most) looooove soccer. But what happens when you are not really into either of these games and are stuck watching them with your friends?!
Don’t worry! We have you covered 😉

For Soccer –

  • Cheer for the Captain Morales! He scored the highest number of goals for Whitecaps last season.
  • Cheer for Mattocks! He was the second highest goal scorer for Whitecaps in the last season.
  • Praise our Goalkeeper Ousted. Games would be so boring without goalkeepers, right?
  • Say that you miss Camilo in the team.
  • Use words like ‘Midfielder’, ‘Defender’, ‘Shots on Goals’, ‘Offsides’ to sound more into the game.
  • Lastly, just loook at those well-built players and get inspired!

For Hockey –

Did we say hockey? Ice hockey! We meant CANUCKS!
Just say, “GO, CANUCKS, GO!”
Glue yourself to the screen and go with the flow. (Love for Canucks should be running in your blood, eh!)

Most importantly, every game is better when enjoyed with your friends and some drinks. Enjoy the entertainment cause “It’s not just sports, it’s entertainment”!

p.s. -hope you get over the ‘games hangover’ soon 😉
