Busselton entrepreneurs Andy Reynolds and Steven Zhang have teamed up to create a food delivery service bringing restaurant meals to your door.

Mr Reynolds came up with the idea when his friends started Margaret River Munchies and thought the concept fitted the South West lifestyle well because of the distance involved in travelling.

“After a hard day at work a lot of people go home and have a drink, then cannot go out to get food,” he said.

“I toiled with the idea for ages then met Steven through my other business, I threw the idea at him and we both thought we would give it a crack.”

Mr Zhang has been living in the region for two years after immigrating from China, he was keen to run his own business one day and jumped on the idea.

“I have always wanted to start my own business and was lucky enough to meet Andy,” he said.

Mr Zhang created the website Busselton Food Runners and the pair have taken on three restaurants in Busselton so would be diners could order meals from Al Forno, Thai Lemongrass and soon The Esplanade.

Since they started the service, Mr Reynolds said orders had picked up each week and they were expecting it to boom over the summer when holidaymakers peaked.

“It is the calm before the storm, over Christmas and Easter the town grows massively,” he said.
