Universal Delivery Solutions, Inc. (PINK: DTSL)

Universal Delivery Solutions was founded in 2010 to provide a unique delivery solution for select businesses. We focus on chain operations that can benefit from One-Number Ordering customer delivery services, but who are unable to find a qualified partner.

A division of Delivery Technology, Universal Delivery Solutions Inc, the leader in delivery management technology, has completed participation at one of the largest restaurant franchisee conventions, held July 22-25, 2010. Its UDS division attended the convention by invitation of the leading franchisor, and was able to showcase its large corporate catering and event management delivery technology platform to many of the thousands of convention attendees, and a range of other potential partners in the industry and associated industries.

“This was our first opportunity to interact face-to-face on a large scale with franchisees from all across American, Canadian, European, Middle Eastern and Asian markets,” said Ryan Coblin, CEO. “We could shake their hands, explain the opportunities our solutions offer, answer their questions and sign them up for follow-up contacts.”

Over the three-day event the company was successful in signing up franchisees that own thousands of locations, and multiple-territory development agents who represent thousands more. These signed prospects will be contacted by the franchisor and UDS to offer them optional programs to expand their customer base, increase sales and build new profits for their restaurants. Qualified franchisees are enrolled in the optional programs, and then UDS proprietary software is implemented at their unit, so orders may be received from the UDS Call Center and Online Ordering technology.

The UDS Division is already planning for a larger role in next year's convention, due to the volume of responses expressed by this year's attendees, and the warm welcome that was received within the vendor community. While currently in expansion of its in-house sales and marketing department, UDS is expecting to implement up to 1,500 locations before the end of 2010, and many more in 2011.
