By partnering with 20 local restaurants and receiving outstanding support from the community, he said, Sewell was able to grow his idea into a company that partnered with more than 125 area restaurants and averaged 350 deliveries a day in under a year.
“I turned a for-profit model into a public utility,” Sewell said, highlighting the importance of local relationships in the community.
…Now, Sewell wants to take his business another step. With the basic business-to-consumer delivery model in place at CHOMP, he feels he can expand to the retail sector. He focused on three areas that the company hopes to test: grocery-store delivery for such local establishments as John’s and New Pioneer Co-Op, business-to-business delivery for such items as office supplies, and an on-call resident delivery service for the new Rise apartment building.
