The company, founded in April 2021, is a snack delivery service active during the evening/night hours when supermarkets are closed. They offer 30 minutes delivery with no minimum order amount and 2 euros delivery fee, with a product pricing really close to supermarket prices.
They are currently active in Den Bosch with more than 500 fulfilled orders from about 200 different customers. They are planning to use Den Bosch as a testsite for their activities and expand in the future to student cities all around the Netherlands. One of their goals is to reach 10 orders per day by January 2022.
With a team of 3 members they are working on this project. They are doing everything themselves from deliveries to business development. As the company grows they are planning to hire more drivers to deliver the products.
Clients can purchase the snacks through direct messages on their Instagram or the website of the company, which in the near future will be converted to an app.
The snacks are currently bought at suppliers that offer bulk discounts like Makro, Kruidvat, and Action. The plan is to reach a volume large enough to be able to close deals directly with producers (Mars, Coca-Cola, etc…) to increase the margin while keeping competitive pricing. The start-up aims for having a 45% margin with closed deals; the current margin is at 30%. Although they do not have a minimum order amount, the average order is now around 11 euros per order. A returning customer rate of 90% indicates a sustainable business model. Its volume is bound to grow more when more effective marketing methods will be put in place.
Currently, practices to increase customer loyalty are active, such as free samples and personal promo codes; a close relationship to the customer is essential to the development, giving a solid customer base and revenue to begin with.
