On Friday, December 16, Up in Your Business with Kerry McCoy will feature guest Ryan Herget from Chef Shuttle. Ryan Herget, started his path as an entrepreneur as a teenager at the age of 15 he saw his first opportunity, when he started a power washing business. Herget secured a $1,000 loan from his parents, got a hardship driver’s license and bought the necessary equipment from Sears to begin his small business. He immediately hit the ground running by distributing 2,000 flyers across town and going door-to-door to promote his new business. In the first summer alone, Herget sold $20,000, and he doubled the company’s profit within the first two years and quadrupled it over the third. In the winter months, he diversified this business by hauling junk for $100 an hour. He sold the business for an impressive profit.

While attending the University of Mississippi in Oxford, Herget, in true entrepreneur spirit, saw another opportunity. His concept was simple, poor college students could opt-in to receive local bar and restaurant drink specials via text message. This business was called the Daily Quench. To keep up with the overwhelming success of his new venture he partnered with local restaurants to sell his Daily Quench cards. Before returning home to Little Rock, he sold this business. At the age of 23 he had started and sold two highly successful businesses.

Today, Herget is the founder of Chef Shuttle. It’s mission…. to deliver a variety of products in a timely fashion. This Restaurant delivery service has expanded to more than 42 cities across Arkansas and Tennessee.

To date, it has partnered with more than 425 restaurants and 225 delivery drivers. Always thinking Herget continues to implement innovative partnerships from boat delivery on Lake Hamilton to flowers.
Chef Shuttle's strong growth history is making a good case for moving its current business model towards that of a national franchise.
