I'm Ben Wilson, a Riverside resident since 1973, and a Class of '94 UNF graduate. As an avid commuter cyclist who served for over 12 years with a leading supermarket chain, I have combined my professional skill & personal passion in an effort to serve our community and benefit the environment in which we reside, all while doing what I love most; riding my bike!
In March 2013, Community Couriers of Jacksonville was launched as a sustainability based grocery shopping and restaurant delivery service created just for the urban core.
Our vision is simple and we hope to accomplish the following:
• Serve our neighbors in the community which we reside by offering an affordable, time-saving grocery shopping service, and a “no minimum order ” restaurant delivery service.
• Help other local small business to grow and thrive by allowing them to offer their customers the convenience of delivery without the overhead of an additional employee, or the expense of a delivery vehicle.
• Benefit the environment by offering this service without adding to the pollution, traffic, and parking issues that would be compounded by putting yet another delivery vehicle on the road.
• Earn an honest wage while riding bikes!
Community Couriers of Jacksonville strives to grow and expand, ultimately creating eco-friendly jobs in our community for others who share the same passion.
Community Couriers of Jacksonville will apply all One Spark funding towards the legal counsel & professional fees required to grow & expand, and take on additional couriers. We also seek funding for public relations, promotions, & advertising, as well as a professionally created website and mobile app.
Project Showcase Proposal
Our Creator Booth will display our main delivery cycle, accompanied by it's 5 foot, 300lb capacity trailer with signage. We will talk to anyone who will listen to us about our project, and answer any questions there may be. We will give away misc. promotional materials and also hold contests and/or drawings for t-shirts & water bottles, etc. We will also have a Power Point Presentation looping in the background.
