Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

A reader asked:

Why is the pizza the only food you can get delivered? What’s the history of pizza delivery?

According to PizzaDelivery.com, in 1889, King Umberto and Queen Margherita had the privilege of getting the first known pizza delivered by Raffaele Esposito, the most famous Pizzaaiolo (pizza chef) in Naples, Italy. In honor of the Queen, Raffaele made the pizza into the colors of the Italian flag: red tomatoes, green basil, and white mozzarella cheese. This later would become the basis for our American Neapolitan pizza.

Pizza delivery really took off after World War II when many soldiers returning from Italy brought back an appetite for the tasty dish. Because pizzas are easily transported in paper boxes, they were the perfect food to be delivered.

Dominos Pizza has been delivering pizza since their founding in 1960.

Companies like the Dine-in Delivery business opportunity have expanded the concept and offer delivery from many different local restaurants.
