History and Current Business Model

The first Doorstep Delivery was established February 29, 2008 by William Moore and Andrew Brown. They joined partners with Tom Colangelo, who started one of the first restaurant marketing and delivery services in Gainesville, Florida. This service, called Gatorfood.com, was established in 1999 and grew to over $2 million in sales in the first 3 years. The owners have successfully setup and established successful branches all over the United States.

The company in Gainesville was first named GatorFood.com and expanded to Capital City Food in Tallahassee with Daniel Sinor in 2006.  Both Tom Colangelo and Daniel Sinor created a profitable company within 3 months with Capital City Food in Tallahassee in 2006.

With the merger, the names of all locations were changed to Doorstep Delivery in 2011 and the official website became www.DoorstepDelivery.com.  The business model changed into a franchise model as well, with all locations being renamed to Doorstep Delivery in 2011.
