DELIVERY SERVICES OPPORTUNITY
The Beginning Phase (No Cost): The Beginning phase of the delivery services business requires minimal financial investment. Entrepreneurs can start by utilising their own means to make deliveries on foot, establishing a foundation of commitment to the enterprise. The U Can Company plays a pivotal role in supporting these individuals by providing mentorship, resources, and access to The U Can Company Fusion application, which offers valuable guidance and support.
By granting funds to entrepreneurs in subsequent phases, organisations contribute to the creation of sustainable livelihoods and economic activities within communities. This phase not only demonstrates the entrepreneur’s dedication but also has a positive impact on the community by providing convenient and reliable delivery services.
Starter Pack Phase (R15,000): In the Starter Pack phase, entrepreneurs can elevate their delivery services business by investing in essential resources and equipment. This may include acquiring bicycles, motorcycles, or small vehicles to expand their delivery capabilities. Entrepreneurs can also allocate funds towards branding, marketing, and operational expenses. The U Can Company continues to provide support through mentorship and the Fusion application, empowering entrepreneurs to navigate this phase successfully. This phase enables entrepreneurs to enhance their service quality, expand their customer base, and generate income for themselves and their employees. Additionally, it contributes to the overall economic development of the community by offering efficient delivery options and creating job opportunities.
Micro Friendchise Phase (R49,950): In the Micro Friendchise phase, entrepreneurs have the opportunity to explore micro commercialisation of their delivery services business. They can expand their operations by opening multiple delivery service centres, employing additional staff, and increasing service offerings such as express or specialised deliveries. Entrepreneurs may also consider selling franchise opportunities to others who wish to start a delivery business under their established brand. The U Can Company provides comprehensive support in terms of training, marketing strategies, and operational guidance to ensure the success of these micro friendchise ventures. This phase not only generates income and employment opportunities for the entrepreneur but also stimulates economic growth within the community.
Boza Phase (R250,000): The Boza phase marks the final stage of the delivery services business growth journey. Entrepreneurs in this phase make significant investments to achieve full commercialisation and expand their delivery services beyond geographical boundaries. With the support of The U Can Company, entrepreneurs receive strategic guidance on scaling their operations, implementing advanced logistics systems, and leveraging technology for efficient service. This phase allows entrepreneurs to attract a larger customer base, cater to a broader range of delivery needs, and generate substantial revenue. The impact of the Boza phase extends beyond the entrepreneur’s success and contributes to the community by providing reliable and widespread delivery services, creating employment opportunities, and fostering economic development.
