Define the term "Social Enterprise"? (per Wikipedia) 

social enterprise is an organization that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in financial, social and environmental well-being. This may include maximizing social impact alongside profits for co-owners.

Social enterprises have businessenvironmental and social goals. As a result, their social goals are embedded in their objective, which differentiates them from other organisations and companies. A social enterprise's main purpose is to promote, encourage, and make social change. Social enterprises are businesses created to further a social purpose in a financially sustainable way. Social enterprises can provide income generation opportunities that meet the basic needs of people who live in poverty. They are sustainable, and earned income from sales is reinvested in their mission. They do not depend on philanthropy and can sustain themselves over the long term. Attempting a comprehensive definition, social enterprises are market-oriented entities that aim to create social value while making a profit to sustain their activities. They uniquely combine financial goals with a mission for social impact. Their models can be expanded or replicated to other communities to generate more impact.

A social enterprise can be more sustainable than a nonprofit organisation that may solely rely on grant money, donations or government policies alone.

Do your drivers work for tips?
Yes, all our drivers gladly accept gratuities for their services. Think of them as your waiter that incur cost to deliver your meal (gas/car maintenance, tolls, etc.), so we recommend 10% to 15% for caterings. Tips are added at check out.

Does the delivery fee count as my tip?

Our drivers work for tips and the delivery fee is not a tip. When you go to checkout, you will be asked if you'd like to add a pre-tip. If you aren't sure how much to tip, our software can automatically calculate a 15%, 20%, or a 25% tip for your convenience. 

What if I have an issue with my order?
Our goal is total satisfaction.  We will work with the restaurant to get it right.  If there is something missing or incorrect with your order, we will try to remedy it the best we can, whether by sending a driver back to you or refunding part of your money.  Our cancelation policy is based on the restaurants policy for the most part.  We will do our best to work out a solution that is fair for both the customer and restaurant.  

If I’m refunded some money or I cancel my order, why do I still see a charge on my bank account?
We do not finalize payments until the end of the day. When you place an order, the funds are captured as a pending transaction to ensure they will be available when it's time to charge you. The pending charge will drop off of your statement, or the charge will be corrected, at the end of the night.
