BROMSGROVE residents with pet peeves about places which do great food but do not deliver can now make the most of a takeaway taxi service.
Takeawaytaxi was born when founder Milon Miah realised not everyone could go out and buy a meal easily.
Milon said he came up with the idea after he ruptured his knee and soon realised how difficult it was to carry a cup of tea from the kitchen to the living room when he could only hop.
Milon, who was living alone, said he eventually resorted to crawling along the floor even though he was only 30 years old.
“After nearly a week of crawling around and going crazy with boredom, I eventually ran out of supplies, but I had a problem – how was I going to get out for food in this condition?”
This was when the idea came to him for Takeawaytaxi which he launched in Ipswich in 2010 and branched out into Bromsgrove in May.
He said he also thought it would be good for parents with small children, when even a quick trip to the chip shop was quite a feat.
“Many people do not own a car, or they have children who take a little management before they are ready to face the world of cars and streets and noise.
“Others might be incapacitated, disabled or just plain frail and everybody has to get out for something, so why not offer a service that fills those needs?
“Takeawaytaxi helps them with that at a small cost.”
So far the company has had great feedback and has been proving popular. They are even looking to employ a second driver.
