As winter begins to settle in to the western edge, Dickinson residents will have a new choice in fast food delivery. All of them.
Former Dickinson State University baseball player Logan Capp has started a third-party concierge service for fast food restaurants in Dickinson.
“There are a lot of opportunities out here,” he said. “What a better place than one of the fastest growing places in the country (to start a business like this)?”
Most of his clients so far have been DSU students, but he delivers to anywhere in Dickinson, and is even in talks to do mass deliveries to smaller cities like Belfield.
He got the idea as a carless college student craving late night burgers and thought “if only.”
“If only” became Oct. 3, when his business began.
Orders are placed through his website. Money for the order, along with the delivery fee, goes into a PayPal account which is then used to purchase the food.
Capp tries to keep delivery time to no more than 40 minutes, and has even delivered a pizza in less than 10 minutes.
“The latest order I did was a Taco Bell run,” he said. “I was pretty much a (designated driver). … It was Taco Bell, one in the morning, delivered. And they’re just like, this is crazy.”
Taco Bell General Manager Ramona Clark was unaware of Capp’s services, but thought the idea was great.
“It gets other people to try our food,” she said.
He has a limited number of restaurants he delivers from now, but is working on getting more, and possibly expanding to other services, like groceries.
He has been working with his twin brother, Adam Capp, who lives in their hometown of Federal Way, Wash., to help promote the business.
Logan Capp works full time, Tuesday through Saturday, and is available for delivery for supper those days. On Sundays and Monday he delivers all day. He is looking to hire more drivers to expand delivery hours.
“People are usually doing homework or watching football on Sundays” so they’re more likely to order in, he said.
The website, along with the logo, is self-designed. He hopes to create an Android and iPhone app, as well.
“So many people think it’s a scam or something,” Logan Capp said. “They don’t really know about it.”
