Tips for Writing a Better Food Delivery Driver Resume

1. Focus on relevant driving experience

Your prior food delivery work should take up the bulk of information on your resume, even if it’s less recent or lengthy than your other experiences. Try to center your resume on your relevant delivery experience and pare back details on any unrelated jobs in your work history. If you’ve held related positions in other industries or work settings, try to focus your description on the general skills you gained (such as efficiency or customer service) that can help you excel as a delivery driver.

Example:

Delivery Driver, Domino’s Pizza, Minneapolis, MN | June 2021 to Present

  • Quickly and accurately deliver pizza orders to customers in a suburban region comprising five towns
  • Take phone orders, and fold pizza and storage boxes during pauses in deliveries
  • Ranked #3 on a 14-person team for productivity during weekend shifts and #5 overall

 

Server, TGI Fridays, Minneapolis, MN | August 2020 to June 2021

  • Gained and demonstrated strong customer service skills at this casual dining restaurant

 

2. Show your key achievement areas

Try to describe how you’ve excelled on your delivery team. There are plenty of ways you might have stood out from other drivers – maybe you ranked high for attendance, efficiency, customer satisfaction, or another key metric. Include your specific rankings if those figures are available.

Examples:

  • High-ranked on team for average delivery time and total deliveries completed per shift
  • Maintained perfect attendance record all four years

 

3. Point to the big picture

Mention any broad changes or improvements you’ve helped bring about at your restaurant or facility. Has the delivery region expanded, or has the restaurant seen higher online ratings from customers? Including this type of content is a great way to round out your job descriptions.

Example:

  • Helped franchise location rank in region’s top 10% for customer satisfaction

How to Align Your Food Delivery Driver Resume With the Job Description

What types of cuisine have you delivered, and to what kinds of communities (urban, suburban, rural)? Keep these details in mind when looking over job postings. Then when you find a posting that interests you, use your resume profile to call out any overlapping experience you have.

For instance, say the job you’re applying for is at a Thai restaurant, and your background includes two years’ experience at a Thai restaurant in another city. In that case, your resume profile could say, “Food Delivery Driver with five years’ experience, including two years at a popular Thai restaurant.” This approach helps the hiring manager see you have relevant background and can quickly get up to speed in their service environment.
