Sights Set on National ExpansionKev Williams
It is a very exciting time here at Zoom 1hr Delivery! We have reached big moment in our journey where our ambition to be a national on-demand delivery solution is firmly within our grasp. We are ready to shake up the marketplace and compete with major food delivery players on a national level.
On a roll
In 2020 we achieved an annual turnover of £665,000 with an order growth rate of 108% from 2019. We are on track to hit £2.5m turnover this year. Over 70,000 people have downloaded our app and we have already made over 200,000 deliveries, with an average delivery time of 24 minutes.
And we are proud of those amazing stats.
Our Co-founder, Dave Hamlet has used his extensive experience in the food and beverage industry to secure a partnership with heavy weight brand, Co-op, with others in the pipeline.
Winning the contract to become the third national last-mile delivery partner for Co-op created an opportunity to expand our own services across Wales and bordering English counties last year.
Plans for 2021
In the three years that Zoom 1hr has been operating, it has remained completely bootstrapped, but we are now opening up the business to investment opportunities to help the business mobilise in new areas, develop our online technology and payment management, expand our team and move into new premises. We want to create a great place to work.
2021 sees our sights set on expanding further across England, Scotland and Wales, and partnering with thousands of British businesses.
Why Zoom 1hr is different
We believe major food delivery players have left huge swathes of the population outside major cities underserved. Serving rural areas and towns, and working closely with businesses in those areas, is absolutely fundamental to what we do.
Zoom 1hr has carved out a place in a rapidly growing marketplace by targeting these underserved areas and by covering a larger radius for delivery. We believe these areas are the places where delivery solutions are needed more than ever.
We are also proud to be looking after our team of drivers. Zoom 1hr recognises their ‘worker’ status and offer paid holiday and other benefits required by current law.
We are leading the pack by being the first app to offer delivery of more than just food. We are empowering independent retailers with a solution to deliver groceries, shoes, homeware, flowers and more, in less than an hour.
Consumers want retail in a faster, more efficient way now and we can provide just that. Online shopping is here to stay and waiting a week or more for a purchase just isn’t going to cut it in 2021.
Bring it on!
We are on a mission to become the UK’s hyperlocal, last mile delivery service and we are incredibly excited to see our national rollout vision come to life this year!
