In 5 Months, Shuttle Customers saved 35,000 units of disposable cutlery

In 5 Months, the #ShuttleSaves initiative has saved 35,000 units of disposable cutlery

My name is Florian, I’m the CTO at Shuttle and I work at our office 5 days a week. During the winter our team orders food to the office so we can eat together. At the office, we have plates and cutlery we eat lunch with and wash afterwards. Each time I saw our food arrive with wooden chopsticks, plastic knives, or forks and spoons; it made me feel a little bit guilty about my delivery experience because I knew I wasn’t using the cutlery. After a month or so, our drawers became full of disposable utensils, so we began throwing the unused ones in the trash.

In the summer of 2018,  our team started thinking a little bit more about taking care of the Earth; we thought, “What if we could give Shuttle customers the option to opt-out of plastic cutlery?” We already knew some customers would be interested because we received a few requests asking for an option to receive less disposable packaging. The requests were very few, approximately about one every two months, so we really didn’t think that it would be a very popular option. During one of our weekly team meetings I brought up the initiative, #ShuttleSaves; and to my surprise, everyone on our C-Level team agreed that the initiative was something we should do as a company.
Our development team immediately started working on the “No Cutlery” option in the app and on the website. We had to make sure that our customer service team would see the customer’s choice, and that the option would display properly on the restaurant dashboard to easily inform them when they prepare the order. The #ShuttleSaves initiative that allowed customers the “No Cutlery” option was quietly launched in September 2018. To my surprise, our customers began using the new feature immediately. By the first month, 4% of all orders chose the “No Cutlery” option. Then it went up to 7% in November, 12% in December, and by January 2019 it was at an all-time high of 22%.

I can tell you from my own experience; it can absolutely ruin your whole delivery experience when you really need the cutlery and you don’t get it. (Have you tried to eat a bowl of Pho without cutlery? I don’t advise you try)

 

This month, (February 2019) we read an announcement from the Korean government about plans to reduce plastic cutlery and containers for delivery companies. It’s nice to see the Korean government taking the issue seriously and we were happy to see that we were ahead of the curve! At present, Shuttle is the ONLY Korea based delivery company that has began tackling the problem with cutlery waste; we hope that others in our industry address the issue before the government has to step in with bulky and rigid regulations. As we can see from the #ShuttleSaves initiative, our customers care about the issue and are willing are willing to take a proactive steps towards creating less waste as long as it’s good for the environment.

Shuttle’s team believes that if we give people the choice to do something for the environment, they will use it! Delivery sometimes uses a lot of unnecessary plastic materials; we’d like to give a big and sincere THANK YOU to those of you who chose the “No Cutlery” option, you are all helping preserve the planet we live on.

An Intern’s Day At Shuttle Delivery By SFS Student Geo Sanghyuk Yoo

tellafriendtemplate

A collective which strives for revenue, not people: that is the most common perception one has towards a corporation or a business. I too, as a mere student that hasn’t experienced much of this vast industry, had the same shades on when viewing companies. However, that stereotypical lens was shattered into pieces when I experienced the business environment within a small start-up company named Shuttle Delivery. To be quite frank, nothing that occured was anything close to what I expected–a complete shock in terms of my 15 year lifetime. Even though I had many experiences with collaborative work within school, the cooperative environment I encountered at a workplace like Shuttle was completely different. It felt as if every contributor of the company was upheld with utmost respect and was given fair credit for everything they accomplished. Instead of focusing on how to gain the most profit, the whole company strives towards building relationships, both internally and externally. I could see that everybody was extremely passionate about their job, each doing their part to accomplish a greater goal.

access-adult-bluetooth-210647

One sector that really spoke to me was the customer service team in the company. Overflowing with calls every single second, I could see the intensity within the room as everyone rushed to keep things organized. What really surprised me is that even though they were in such an overwhelming and intense situation, they always kept their composure and kindness. The way they treat their customers with individualized care was fascinating, and I could proudly say that I would be very happy with the service even if I was a customer myself.

 

Just to provide a bit of insight as in what the internal atmosphere of this company actually feels like, I’ve interviewed the head of the customer service department.

 

Question #1: How long have you worked in Shuttle and how was your experience so far?

 

I have been in Shuttle for 2 years now. The work is sometimes stressful when issues pop out, but it’s usually very manageable.

design-desk-display-313690

Question #2: What do you think is different about the Shuttle community compared to other companies?

 

I have to say that the working environment here is much more free than other places. Also, it’s really nice as I can say my opinions freely towards the development of the company.

 

Question #3: What is the most interesting experience you’ve had whilst being part of the team?

 

I would say that the most interesting experience I had was just spending time with everyone while having dinner after work. After a stressful day, having good food with good people will always be remembered.

 

In my opinion, Shuttle is like a David in the bible–a small powerhouse which has the potential to compete against colossal opponents. With gigantic companies such as FoodFly or 배달의 민족 monopolizing the market, it’s hard for small start-up businesses like Shuttle to survive in this industry. However, after experiencing the exceptional internal atmosphere of the company, I could see how maybe, just maybe, this small business can be a gamechanger. Encompassing family-like characteristics that none of the gigantic corporations can ever imagine, the Shuttle team’s sense of unification and cooperation is amazing, and that directly shows towards the end consumer as well.

An Intern’s Day At Shuttle Delivery By SFS Student Elias Kim

screen-shot-2018-05-04-at-11-07-46-pm

As the school year comes to a close we see school’s start offering new opportunities to their students. One of these opportunities is for two Seoul Foreign School students to spend a week here at shuttle. During our time here we will be taking a look at the different parts of the business, from the customer service, to the sales, and marketing teams.

business-chairs-company-7070

Yesterday, we got a chance to call some of Shuttle’s partner restaurants and ask them a few questions. Not many of them spoke fluent english so it was more difficult for me as I can’t speak Korean. Nevertheless I managed to get a few answers out of the polite restaurant employees. Most of the questions I asked were either about the restaurants, or later on their relationship with shuttle. I wanted to know more about this as a highschool student going into their junior year without much of an idea of what they want to go into in the future I wanted to know most about what being a business entails and what helps to make a business successful. I wouldn’t consider myself the most qualified person to talk about this as someone who has next to no experience with the business world but being able to glean the information I could was really beneficial for me. It helped me think about what kind of person I want to be in the future and, if I was to go into business, what kind of business I would want to run.

business-career-close-up-221164

The first set of calls I made was to restaurants in the Yeonhui-dong area. Most of the restaurants either didn’t pick up, had managers who were absent, or couldn’t speak english so I could only awkwardly thank them for their time and move on. As a Korean person growing up in Korea without speaking Korean I had faced these kinds of problems before, but it was painfully visible when I didn’t know how to ask if the restaurants had an english speaker that I was struggling. I was however able get a few answers from Delhi India at the start, and this helped me stay motivated for the rest of the time I called in the Yeonhui-dong area. The first thing I had wanted to know was about the people and the restaurant themselves. It was interesting to learn more about the people running the restaurants rather than just focusing on the food. Aside from those I started to want to learn more about shuttle itself and how it had affected the businesses of those it partnered with. There was a wide difference. For Delhi India shuttle seemed to have helped them gain more customers and exposure. While for Beth’s Poutine, a restaurant in the second round of calls to Itaewon, didn’t seem to have noticed any real difference in their sales from before and after they partnered with shuttle. Another interesting difference I noticed was that with larger chain companies like Halal Guys the answers given were much shorter and were relatively vague in comparison to the smaller diner like restaurants. The answers the managers were able to give were also very different. At Delhi India the manager was able to answer all the questions regarding major decisions in the restaurant like the location and genre of food. At Halal Guys the manager position was just another rung on the ladder. The person in the position had been promoted to it 4 months prior. It was interesting to see the differences between the two extremes and it helped me have a clearer view on what’s more important in a job that I would want in the future. A steady stable income with the reassurance of a franchise behind your back. Or the relative freedom that comes with starting and managing your own restaurant.

April showers bring…LONGER Shuttle operating hours!

screen-shot-2018-03-28-at-7-35-25-pm

Hello to all you lovely Seoulites and congrats on making it through a very cold Seoul winter. Thank you for supporting us and helping us blow past previous order records; obviously, we wouldn’t be able to keep growing if it weren’t for you guys. With every order we aim to up our game and strive to give ya’ll the easiest & best possible delivery experience.

 

April Showers bring…LONGER hours! Yep, you read that correctly; starting April 2nd we will start service at 11:00 AM and accept orders through midnight. We will NO LONGER be having a lunch break during the weekdays between 3:00 and 4:30 PM, we’ll remain open all day. Previously our hours of operation were from 11:30 AM to 9:30 PM with a break between 3:00 – 4:30 PM, so this gives you guys four and a half more hours to get food delivered directly to your doorstep. We’ve had many customers request longer delivery hours because they work late, we hope this helps you guys out! We’ll test the new hours for one month, then re-evaluate how popular staying open past 9:30 is; if popular we will keep the extended hours. Please keep in mind that many of our partner restaurants close between 9:00 – 10:00 PM, but don’t worry, we’ll do our best to curate a selection ample enough to satisfy your late night Crave-ings!

 

We really want to add more features to help make our service more convenient and satisfying for our Shuttle Family. So if you guys ever have any suggestions or feedback please let us know and we will do our very best to get those sorted as quickly as possible. Thanks so much for choosing Shuttle as your delivery service, we really appreciate all the support we get from you guys. Next time you feel we’ve completed a five star “worthy” delivery it would be AMAZING if you could rate us on the App Store, Google Play, or Facebook. As a small business we need all the SEO help we can get and positive reviews definitely help us with potential new customers.

 

More Delivery Options will be Available in Gangnam!

gangnam-style-cartoon

Coming soon! Shuttle plans to add at least 60 new options for it’s Gangnam customers.  

 

Right now there are only about 14 delivery options in Gangnam on the Shuttle Delivery service.  We want this number to grow to about 75 in the next couple months and eventually reach 150 options. We want customers in Gangnam to feel like they are getting just as many choices as the Itaewon customers have gotten used to having.  

gangnam_station_fast-above-view

We understand that our service is probably not well known to the folks living in Gangnam because they are not seeing that many restaurants that interest them. We know in order to get them to spread the word to their friends and colleagues; we must give them something worth talking about. There needs to be a clear sign of dedication to their needs and concerns.  The way to exhibit that dedication is by showing the community of Gangnam that we are more present, and with an intention to grow further in that region.  

homepage-burger

Many of the restaurants we plan to add, include local burger favorites like Gilbert Burgers, and Firebell. Also local pizza go-tos like Brick Oven Pizza and The Booth will be targeted. Cherished Gangnam darlings like Bad Farmers, Pick-a-bagel, Jihal Guys, Holee Chow will be aimed for as well. Last but not least we totally intend to gather international chains like California Pizza Kitchen, Subway, and Quiznos. We really want to offer something for everyone’s taste so this will hopefully be a more comprehensive solution for the Gangnam community to help with their delivery needs.   

pepperoni_pizza

This will hopefully show the entire Seoul community about our commitment to growing and improving.  We hope this jumpstarts us to eventually take over more areas in Seoul and eventually all over Korea. This will be a very important chapter in the story of our existence in the Korean food delivery ecosystem.  We hope you guys will support us on our newest venture and we will do our best to make your support worthwhile.

 

First Day of Summer

Today marks the official start to the summer of 2017, so congratulations, we have made it to another season! The official term to describe today as the beginning of summer is the summer solstice. The summer solstice typically occurs around the 21st of June in the northern hemisphere and is the time when the sun reaches its highest point of the year at the Tropic of Cancer, resulting in the longest day of the year. It’s a phenomenon which causes us to receive our largest amount of sunlight in one day.

heat-advisory

Even though summer only officially started today on June 21st, it was already starting to feel a lot like summer all around the peninsula. We were already getting warnings from the local media about a week before summer solstice regarding the avoidance of going outside if not absolutely necessary. Which is one of the many reasons that Shuttle Delivery was invented! The summer sun tends to make us more lethargic and so we should conserve our energy and have our food delivered to us.  Especially since the summer heat is much better enjoyed indoors with AC 🙂

summertimebbqtime

Summer is still one of our favorite times of year though. Not so much for the heat, which we truly hate, due to us spending most of our time on bikes buzzing about; but just the slower pace that everyone else takes and a much more fun attitude that everyone seems to share. There is also a lot of great food to enjoy in summer like  some creamy refreshing gelato delivered from our partner Zucca’s Gelato. The American summer classic, grilled burgers, are covered by ordering from spots like Left Coast, Bombs Burgers, Gilbert’s, I Am a Burger, and The Hike.  Plus we have so many BBQ joints! BBQ is also a summer mainstay and we have great options for delivery like Big Boy BBQ, Craftworks Taphouse, Manimal Smokehouse, and Rusty’s Smokehouse .

We look forward to seeing more of you guys this summer while you enjoy vacations and well deserved rests indoors. Cheers to seeing how summer 2017 plays out!
