The first DoorstepDelivery.com® was established February 29, 2008 by William Moore and Andrew Brown. They soon joined partners with industry veterans Daniel Sinor and Tom Colangelo, who started the first Restaurant Marketing & Delivery Service, Gatorfood.com, in 1999. The four owners have setup and established successful branches all over the country.
DoorstepDelivery.com® works with a team of professional “mobile waiters” are revolutionizing the way people eat, allowing the convenience of having your favorite restaurants delivered directly to your home, office, or event or making placing pick-up orders quick & easy. Until recently, people who wanted food delivered other than the traditional Chinese or Pizza have had to pick up themselves. For occasions where people needed to feed a large group, the options were limited unless you wanted to pay a huge premium to have a professional catering service handle it. Doorstep Delivery now allows people to get what they want (select from their favorite restaurants), where they want (home, office, hotel, event, beach, hospital …), when they want (order now or place for future delivery), and how they want it (delivered, picked-up, dine-in).
DoorstepDelivery.com® has taken a concept, created a system, tested that system, improved upon that system, then tested that system and improved upon it some more. DoorstepDelivery.com® knows that to be the best, involves the ability to adapt, change, and listen to our customers. It is only recently with breakthroughs and affordability of technology involved in the Restaurant Marketing & Delivery Service industry that this type of business has been able to thrive and offer everything previous companies have failed to deliver. Our motto is “Craving? Get it Delivered!” and we will continue to deliver on our promise for as long as we exist!

Then in 2006, he took that system to Tallahassee, FL where he started his second restaurant delivery service, CapitalCityFood.com.
After the instant success of CapitalCityFood.com and consulting for over 40 other similar businesses within the industry, he knew it was the right time to franchise the concept.

Daniel succeeded in learning every aspect of the business and excelled quickly. It was then that Tom Colangelo proposed a new business opportunity for Daniel and CapitalCityFood was born in Tallahassee, FL. Tom and Daniel were able to make CapitalCityFood a profitable business within 3 months of its opening.
