Pretty much all of the takeaways are going to need additional drivers at the same time. They all have the same busy periods. Lets say for example: - You have 100 drivers on your books, giving them full time work as you say - 50 takeaways need 2 drivers each at weekend when they're busy. No problem, at weekends, all your drivers are working! - Those 50 takeaways only need 1 driver each during the week. Perfect! They just hire one from you and they save money on a full time wage. That's 50 of your drivers working - You are now sat on 50 drivers who are NOT working, but you are paying them a full time wage. How do you pay for that full time wage? - One option might be to find an extra 50 takeaways to send those drivers to during the week. Perfect! All 100 drivers are now out working during the week. - Come weekend again, and you now have 100 takeaway customers, who all want 2 delivery drivers. You need 200 drivers on your books...and you only have 100! I am struggling to see how the maths add up.
