Students offered complimentary food distribution
THE SANTA CLARA
January 16, 2014
In honor of the three-year anniversary of Bronco Delivery, Bronco Student Services is joining hands with Bon Appetit to provide one night of free Bronco Delivery to Santa Clara today from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.
“The service has grown tremendously since its start three years ago,” said Arthur Gallanter, co-owner of Bronco Student Services. “Last year, Bronco Delivery averaged over 200 orders delivered per night and expanded to every residence hall as well as off campus.”
Gallanter said that when he and his co-partner Anthony Prieto first founded Bronco Delivery, the system provided a completely different customer experience than it does now. Deliveries were made only to a few dorms on campus via bikes.
“As each quarter passed, we improved the service and made it more efficient,” said Gallanter. “The experience students have now is much better. We use an electric cart, deliver to all dorms and even off campus.”
The service continues to expand and upgrade to this day.
“When I order Bronco Delivery, I know that it will be at my room in 45 minutes or less,” said sophomore Dominique Terry.. “Walking to Benson (Memorial Center) from Casa Italiana takes ages. With the option to pay for food with meal points, I believe subscribing to Bronco Delivery is a no-brainer. I look forward to Thursday’s free-delivery day.”
As of fall 2013, Bronco Delivery made the switch from delivery fees to a $39-quarterly subscription to help frequent buyers save money. Bronco Delivery currently has over 200 subscribers.
Gallanter thinks providing free delivery for one night to celebrate Bronco Student Service’s work is a perfect way to thank the very loyal student-customer base in addition to providing other students with the opportunity to experience the convenience and benefits of Bronco Delivery.
“I have been considering getting a subscription for Bronco Delivery, and I am excited to try it out on Thursday in order to see if this is something I want to invest in for the rest of the quarter,” said sophomore Haley Harmon.
Gallanter believes the food delivery system has certainly provided a convenient service at Santa Clara and hopes students will take the opportunity to purchase a discounted subscription at the price of $29.
