Donut Delivery From Hotel Room October 29, 2017 by Ben Share44 Pin +1 Tweet ShareShares 44 I know… [READ PART ONE FIRST: https://learnhotdogs.com/single-mom-starting-hot-dog-cart/] I took way too long to get to the creamy filling on these donuts but I had to give you the back story. Carol in a go-getter. Carol is a bad-azz! I'm sure you've heard me on the radio show… I'm a tad long winded. [PART TWO] Carol read the Instant Vendor course twice. She said she took down notes and came up with a plan. Her first day was rough. Over $50 in the red (negative). But it was money well spent and I'll tell you why… Carol took my info, just one of the many things in the course, she put her own spin on things and began. She made a handwritten flyer that said something like… Donuts Delivered Fresh baked every morning. We deliver 7 days a week. Call xxx.xxx.xxxx She made copies. She then went to Krispy Kreme and bought 3 dozen donuts. She asked and received a handful of the single wax paper bags that say: KRISPY KREME She placed one donut in each bag and delivered them to local businesses with a copy of her flyer. Within a couple hours she was out about $50 in gas, donuts and fliers. Before she'd finished delivering, she had received 2 requests for deliveries the next day. By the end of the day she had four. The next day she delivered her new customers first. She bought extras and repeated deliveries to the same businesses as she'd done the previous day. Giving them each a free donut and another flyer. By the end of the second day, Carol had 16 customers for her third day. By the end of day three, Carol had 21 customers and one big customer who wanted 10 dozen every Friday and another office complex that wanted 4 dozen each day. The following week she was getting requests for coffee. She called me and I told her about Dunkin's Box O' Joe. And it's why she's now hired another long term resident at the motel to help. Carol averages 31 deliveries a day. She's averaging after gas expenses about $5.00 per delivery. She has to make multiple trips back and forth to both Dunkin and to Krispy Kreme. She discovered a need and she's filled it. And with one $5.00 course, some awesome go getter'ness and a donut… she's very soon going to have her own Big Dog Cart. To your awesome potential, Ben “better than average” Wilson P.S. I know, I know… I could have said hey there is a lady named Carol and she's selling donuts to local business to raise money for her cart. But that just doesn't hit you in the feels like this does.
