Matt Quatrani of East Greenville readies for a food delivery from Pizza Como in Pennsburg. Quatrani has started a delivery service which brings restaurant orders straight to your home or business.
With time being a precious commodity for most these days, an East Greenville man has made it his business to save customers both time and mileage with a takeout delivery service catered to the community.
During his time at Temple University, Matt Quatrani got to experience the popularity of takeout both as a delivery driver for a pizza shop and a consumer. So, once he came home and found it hard to find a job with his degree, he said starting his own delivery service just made sense.
“We have so many good places to eat in the valley but hardly anyone delivers,” he said. “I thought it would be awesome if places like Pizza Como, Valley Café and Joy Inn Chinese Restaurant would.
“Our main goal at Delivery Boy is to make it easy for busy families and office workers to get great food delivered at a fair price. People are busier now more than ever. So instead of having to pick up food, you can have it delivered right to your door.”
The concept is not a new one, Quatrani explained. While it is very popular in larger areas like Philadelphia, he thought it would be a perfect thing to help out the busy people of the Upper Perkiomen Valley.
This is how the service works. First, a customer calls Delivery Boy to place their order from one of the business’s participating eateries. Then, a driver goes to the location, picks up the order and delivers it hot to the customer’s door.
The simple and speedy service costs $5. Drivers work for tips, so they are appreciated, Quatrani said.
Delivery Boy operates within a five-mile radius of the Pennsburg Square (Routes 29 and 663) and accepts all major credit cards.
“This service is valuable for anyone and everyone,” Quatrani said, explaining he really sees an advantage for people who need to get things done in a hurry but have a million other things to do.
“Getting good food delivered every once in a while on a busy weeknight can be a real lifesaver for a busy mom,” he noted. “We bring your favorite restaurants right to your living room.”
Delivery Boy is currently working on partnerships with other area venues, but Quatrani said they began with their current offerings because they are some of the best restaurants in town and want more people to be able to experience their food.
Quatrani is building an online ordering system for added convenience on his website, www.updeliveryboy.com. The menus for each of the service’s partners are now on Delivery Boy’s Facebook page. Customers can call (484) 801-0001 to order.
Hours of operation are 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. and 4 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 8 a.m. until 9 p.m. Sunday.
