About this project
LavaBox came from 4 mates having a lads night in wanting different takeaways but at the same time, it just wasn’t happening..
2 weeks later I (Steve) had thought about it non stop and told the others I was going to try it, an all inclusive delivery service. The others all laughed and said it wasn’t a thing, they were happy to help out but secure in the safety of their day jobs – so I decided to give it a go!!
6 months later I believe LavaBox was the first company in the UK to deliver its customers various food and drink orders in 1 drop.
As we hit a peak in demand and leased a shop my family suffered an unexpected loss who was a big supporting factor in the idea, my grandma was the person who gave me the deposit money to lease the shop we could operate from and when she passed I had to take time out and close up.
As this happened my circumstances changed resulting in spending a while homeless and you can’t run a business without a living space!
I’m back on my feet, ready to go.
Since then the another business model arrived doing half the job but gaining twice the momentum so I want LavaBox to be what it was designed to be, the best delivery service in the food business – this is like Deliveroo’s model but ambitious and efficient.
I will add a clip, once I have got comfortable with the idea; cameras aren’t my thing..
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges with this project are only scaling to compete with competition, the 1 rival it has is already a national company but LavaBox is established, respected and has a loyal user base.
Plus, I promised my grandma I would make this work, I owe her that!
