Best local food delivery service: Delivery Express

Over the last month or so, takeaways and food delivery services have been working hard to try and safely feed the hungry mouths of the locals. Make your next purchased meal a breeze by ordering from Christchurch’s very own Delivery Express and in the process support local. We caught up with founder of the company Himanshu Sharma to discuss the latest in the food delivery service.



Has Delivery Express seen an increase in local restaurants signing up since the virus?
Yes, we have doubled the number of restaurants compared to pre-Covid days and above all restaurants are satisfied with services.

What type of food can customers order from you?
Customers can order a variety of cuisines ranging from Thai, Indian, Mexican, fast food, burgers, street food, Chinese, Afghani, vegan, healthy, French crepes etc.

How are you getting the meals to the customers?
Delivery Express has created a one of a kind local ecosystem with #supportlocal as its core value, we feel proud about the fact that an iconic local company like Gold Band Taxis is among our delivery partners, getting hot food delivered to hungry locals quickly.

We’re encouraging everyone to #supportlocal. How is Delivery Express supporting local?
In various ways – No setup charges for restaurants, restaurants keep more money with them compared to any other service. And we do not mark up the food prices of restaurants.

Is there anything exciting coming up for the company?
Same day liquor delivery is in pipeline and would be available soon for our customers!


Food app takes big bite: Delivery Express

One year ago, tech entrepreneur Himanshu Sharma wanted to order food for delivery from his regular favourite restaurant via a delivery service app, for a social gathering. However, he was stunned to see there was nearly a 30 percent price mark-up for the delivery compared to in-store menu prices, which left Sharma feeling ripped off.



Then came the idea. Sharma began to develop a platform for those who liked eating food at home, but who didn’t want to pay more than they had to for that luxury. One year later, his tech start-up Delivery Express now has close to 50 restaurants and cafés signed up with meals the same price as in-store. Customers can save up to 30 percent on each order by not paying any hidden delivery charges.

When Sharma went to his first restaurant owner to showcase the advantages of Delivery Express, which he believes is the “next generation of food ordering/delivery ecosystem”, they recognised the idea and the thinking behind it as too good to miss.

Some of the top Korean and Indian restaurants of Christchurch are exclusive with Delivery Express and another top 10-20 are expected to join soon. Delivery Express allows you to place your next order for some of Christchurch’s most delectable delights with no fuss, delivered quickly to your doorstep.

Customers are notified in-app as the order progresses from ‘order confirmed’ to ‘delivered’. Whether you require a home delivery, takeaway, or are simply wanting to book a table, Delivery Express is your new food app of choice.
