I recently observed a number of small businesses offering delivery services through the network of “TWO AnyONE” with the numbers 21212. I haven’t tried that though. The other day, I saw this “Mang Inasal, Pa-deliver na!” ad banner atop a public jeepney enroute Buendia. I was reminded of an email encouraging me to try this out.
And so I did, over last Sunday.
October 10, 2010 – 1:30pm, I called-up 733-1111 and ordered from Mang Inasal. It was the usual fast food hotline greeting and order placement inquiries. I timed it consciously since it was my first with Mang Inasal delivery.
By 1:54pm, it came! With 24 minutes, I should say that it was a good delivery time.
I had quite high expectations actually because I had it delievered in my Makati residence. I know of many Mang Inasal branches nearby and being a Sunday, there was virtually no traffic.
On another note, I think Mang Inasal should incorporate, if not yet, validation call backs to verify the orders and contact numbers given by customers. The ‘order’ guy asked for my cellphone number (since I don’t have a landline in my Makati residence). I was actually waiting for a verification call back first but delivery immedaitely came.
Nonetheless, congratulations Mang Inasal! It was a good delivery job. No wonder Mang Inasal restaurant franchise inquiries abound.
