Lightbulb Interpreting the Goals & Ambitions thread somewhat widely, but... - July 17th 2013, 02:29 PM

I figured it fits under the 'anything else you want to achieve' umbrella.

A home delivery dessert service. Specializing in Tim Tams, Ice Cream, and Chocolate.

I can't actually believe its not more widely available. I mean sure, plenty of takeaway places have dessert, but they're not particularly decent, and sometimes you want icecream and chocolate at 2am but are in your pajamas, dammit.

I think there might be a few things like it in the UK but there doesn't seem to be anything like it here in Aus. I was thinking you'd probably be able to fund it with something like kickstarter.

Thoughts?

I like the idea

I'm not sure what ones there are here other than the regular takeaways with desserts (but as long as it's not a chain store the desserts are pretty damn good). I do know that there's a chain in the US that deliver cookies up until 3am.

I think it'd be pretty neat to have this and you'd probably have a lot of people supporting the idea if you put it on kickstarter so good luck with that and I hope it goes well

I'd really like that idea. When I'm older I totally would want to order random desserts at 2 AM just because I can. Maybe if something is started over there more places in the U.S. would.

That sounds like a very interesting idea! I would defiantly be one of those people who order Ice Cream at 2:00AM! The only problem(s) I see out of it (as far as if it were to be in the U.S), is the gas prices (you would have to charge atleast a $2 delivery charge - which would be like 40% of the actual order cost, & the problem of the Ice Cream melting, getting destroyed, or other similar issues.

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

Yeah, gas prices aren't cheap here either, so they'd definitely factor in to the equation. There would have to be all sorts of arrangements, such as packaging, marketing, most profitable hours of delivery - and as you mentioned, method of delivery. It would be kinda cool to have scooters with a little freezer on the back like the opposite of Dominos, but probably more efficient to have a very small truck.

Then you'd have to consider what sort of arrangements you'd want to make with manufacturing. I think in the beginning for a small business it would need to be arrangements with other small businesses to supply the icecream and desserts, so you can act as the go between, until you've made enough profit to offer your own products.

Yeah. While your idea is surly great - it would just take alot of thought, organization, communication, & dedication!
