As one of the top providers of delivery maps for pizza franchises, restaurants, and delivery companies, MarketMAPS knows how important it is to get your deliveries right.  We’ve worked closely with all types of delivery businesses and over the years we’ve come up with a few tips to help you improve your deliveries.  For pizza restaurants and pizza enthusiasts, MarketMAPS shares our tips for improving your pizza deliveries. 

Plan the Route, Know the Route.  Planning deliveries and knowing the route ahead of time will cut down on travel and get the pizzas to customers faster.  Also, planning some alternative routes doesn’t hurt.  Construction and accidents can cause huge traffic delays, and having an alternative route planned out will minimize late deliveries.  Have a map of your service area clearly displayed in your shop so all employees know which neighborhoods are served and which aren’t.

Only Deliver to Safe Areas.  You don’t want to send your drivers into a crime-ridden neighborhood.  If you’ve had problems in the past with certain addresses or neighborhoods, mark them on your delivery maps.  Many pizza restaurants mark a “no deliveries after sunset” section of their map if they’ve had trouble with robberies.  Only deliver to lobbies and the fronts of well-lit houses.


Obey Traffic Laws.  It may seem obvious, but if you don’t implore your drivers to follow all traffic laws, it could cost you customers.  Cops know your drivers are in a rush, but getting pulled over for running a red light or speeding will cause your deliveries to be even later.  Design routes that avoid areas of heavy traffic.  This will help your pizzas get delivered quicker, and your drivers feel more at ease.

No Unscheduled Stops.  Have your drivers eat and fuel their cars before their shifts.  As soon as they clock in, it’s pizza delivery time.

MarketMAPS has been helping businesses plan and improve their delivery routes for over 25 years.  We publish the most accurate wall maps, map books, and digital maps covering any area in the USA and worldwide.  We can even create a custom map of your area, displaying the details and locations important to you.
