Distribution
A food delivery service that finds you at the same times, every day, based on your phone's GPS location. Wherever you are, if it's time for your meal, the delivery guy will just show up with something you like.
Why?
  • Maximum convenience for people who can't be bothered with food. Have all your food needs taken care of without having to think, plan, buy, order, prepare, clean the dishes. All you need to do is eat and discard the biodegradable packaging + utensils.
  • People who are semi-independent (disabled, mental illness, borderline senile, etc) could really use a solution like this.
How it works
You pay a fixed monthly amount and get all your meals taken care of, regardless of where you are.
Depending on your eating habits and diet, the service will prepare food and deliver it to you at the same time every day. Regardless of whether you eat 2 or 5 meals per day, the service will deliver. It will find you based on your GPS location. The only condition is that you are within the coverage radius (for example your town). If you go out of town, the service will pause your monthly plan until you get back in range.
You can schedule your meals in advance if you wish. Ideally though, you would just provide a list of foods grouped by categories (breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon snack, etc.). That way, the delivery service will make sure the foods are diverse and not repetitive. You can update your lists via an app at any time.

Great idea.
I'm thinking about what other products would be convenient to receive at scheduled times. The first thing that comes to mind is medicine. Perhaps pharmacies, especially in smaller communities could be able to send a delivery person with every scheduled dose a person is meant to take. I just don't know what restrictions there would be on transporting prescribed medication.

Diet consultation and health monitoring

The service could also include a diet consultation. This is for those who are not able to find time to cook and shop and are not bodybuilders, sportsmen, etc. Upon payment, you get a call from the company asking for your food habits, allergies, and your morphometric measurements. They then prescribe a diet that they think might help you become healthier. You try that for a few days. If you see positive changes, you continue with that. If not, they change your diet until they perfect it.

Deep learning prediction algorithm that schedules food delivery when you're hungry

a deep learning algorithm tries to guess the optimal time you need food by your side. It depends on several factors like
  • what time you usually get hungry
  • what time you wake up
  • how much sleep you got
  • manual reporting when the algorithm fails to guess correctly
  • how physically active you were
  • etc
It would be great if the algorithm had available data from a fitness and sleep tracker device that you wear all the time.
With a solution like this, food delivery would appear exactly when and where you need it.

Personal preferences

Some people like diverse food, others prefer to eat the same meals over and over again. Depending on how much time you want to invest to fine-tune the preferences you could provide hundreds of examples of what you like to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner.
Via the app you could rate each meal on a scale from 1 to 10. If the service is confident they can make it so that any meal rated 1-3 is free. Then they have an internal quality control department that investigates every bad rating.
The service can identify other people who closely match your preferences and sometimes surprise you with novelty meals from their top picks.
You would configure how often you want to be surprised and how often you want the service to bring food from your approved list.

What happens if the delivery person comes when you are busy?

As part of the signup process, people would be asked for their preference as to how they want the delivery person to handle the most frequently encountered problematic situations. For example, what to do if:
  • You're in a meeting
  • You don't answer the phone/door for 10 minutes
  • You're playing sports
  • etc

People could wear Oura/Fitbit type devices that send feedback data to the food delivery company. The meals could be personalized based on how active a person is and how they are feeling that day.

This would be great for dates. You can sit with your date on a park bench and ask her if she wants something to eat just before the scheduled food arrives. She'll be impressed by the efficiency and your effort.

I could see something like this being extremely popular among people like bodybuilders who put great value on meeting exact nutritional science.
You would be able to specify exactly what your nutritional goals are and the company would make sure that your needs are covered by your meals.

Spook Louw it would also be popular among people who live alone. Also people who have a busy schedule - too busy to prepare food or even do shopping

One delivery per day or as many as there are meals? One delivery per day wouldn't work though? Because the food could go bad if you're out in the city and it could be hard to carry the meals for later with you.
While three or five deliveries per day would negatively impact the environment and traffic jams substantially if the service got popular. Maybe drone delivery could be the solution?

Miloš Stanković as many deliveries as people eat meals. With electric bikes, cars, and solar power it could actually be better for the environment. It takes less energy to prepare food in bulk and distribute it to multiple people rather than preparing food on multiple energy-intensive stoves (when everyone cooks for themselves). Stoves are wasteful. The wasted energy adds up. In contrast, electric-powered transportation is made as efficient as possible to maximize range.
