One click away from restaurant delivery service

MILLEDGEVILLE — Having graduated from Georgia College with a bachelor’s degree in business administration just last summer, 25-year-old Kenny Donovan and his best friend joined their creative minds to develop a unique restaurant delivery service serving the Milledgeville-Baldwin County area. After three months of planning, preparing and networking, the young entrepreneur officially launched KNG Delivery in mid-August.

“Even though the job market is tough, I wanted to start my own business. My best friend from birth, Stephen Garapola, helped me to come up with the business idea. We ended up stumbling on the idea of delivery ... and after evolving over time, I figured Milledgeville doesn’t have a restaurant delivery service. I got in touch with Bulldawg Food in Athens since they do really well business. The guy mentored me and took me through the whole process, who I needed to get in touch with, and what I needed to do to make this a working business.”

Using restaurant delivery software, locals can log onto the KNG website, browse through the various available restaurant menus, customize and place an order, pay via credit card, and have it delivered in an insulated hot bag within 30 to 60 minutes to a place of residence or business in Baldwin County with a 31061 zip code.

“The software handles all orders and sends a fax or e-mail to the restaurant. We internally process the credit orders and dispatch coordinates with the driver for pick-up and delivery. The standard delivery fee is $4.99; this applies to deliveries within a six to seven mile radius of downtown Milledgeville. Deliveries to the outskirts of Milledgeville will have an extra fuel charge for the driver. Students can get a discount of $3.99 for delivery, but they have to follow instructions on the Facebook page to get the discount,” Donovan said. “Orders can be placed in the future as well. You can schedule your delivery in the morning from home and have it delivered to your office later in the day. We accept cash, card and business or company checks, but we don’t take personal checks.”
