Welcome to the Drive Yello blog.

Thanks for joining us. There’s a lot going on at Yello that we’re so excited to share with you.
As of today, there are over 2,000 quality drivers partnered with Yello.
Yello couldn’t function without our amazing drivers who value reliable food delivery as much as we do. By driving for Yello, drivers are able to make their own hours by picking up shifts when and where it’s convenient for them. They are also able to foster relationships with restaurants and grow their own personal delivery business. It’s a network that benefits everyone, and it’s been a pleasure to see the Yello community thriving. We’re always looking for more people to drive with Yello, so don’t hesitate to spread the word!
Last week alone, Yello drivers made over 1,300 deliveries.
Not to mention the 20,000+ deliveries Yello has provided since we started in December. Every day, we see more happy customers, active drivers, and growing restaurants. Our deliveries are fast and efficient because of our bundling algorithm that helps restaurants group delivery orders together based on cooking time, time of the order, driver proximity, and destination proximity to the store.
We’ve got some sweet rides.
Two weeks ago, we added the first two vehicles to our official Yello fleet. We have a scooter and electric bike to loan out to drivers that want to pick up shifts for busy downtown restaurants but don’t necessarily have the means to do so. These yellow bikes are pretty cool if we do say so ourselves, so hopefully we’ll get more out on the road soon. In their spare time, our tech team drafts up designs for flying Yello cars, so you can look forward to that as well.
We’re growing up and getting ready to move away from home.
Three weeks ago, Yello launched in Melbourne, and we’re looking to open an office there soon. Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 3.12.19 PMKnown for its rich dining culture and love of food, Melbourne seemed like the obvious choice for our expansion after developing a strong presence in Sydney. Recently, CEO Steve Fanale and COO Johnny Timbs visited California as well to gain some insight into breaking into U.S. markets. After talking to advisors, potential clients, and partners, Steve and Johnny now have a clearer understanding of what our U.S. strategy could be. We’re hoping to make that expansion a reality sooner than we initially believed we could.
As if a premium food delivery service wasn’t enough, we now have the best blog on the internet as well!
Check back with us soon to meet the team, learn why Yello is the best company to drive for, get updates about our new partner businesses, and more!

We'd love to hear from you.
