Swamped at work but have an overwhelming craving for Sonic cheese sticks? Or maybe you ran out of time to prepare that five-course lobster meal you had planned to impress the in-laws. The solution? Takeout Express.

Takeout Express will deliver everything, except alcohol, from any restaurant from downtown to west Little Rock, including fast-food eateries, said co-owner Monica Kabi.

Takeout Express is not limited to certain restaurants within this area because it is not under any contracts, but it does assess a $5 or 15 percent delivery charge, whichever is greater, on all orders. And though multiple restaurants may be requested on the same order, the $5 or 15 percent charge applies to reach restaurant.

Full restaurant menus are available online, Kabi said. And the drivers check to ensure the order is correct and well-stocked with napkins, utensils and condiments.

Although Kabi estimates most orders will take about 45 minutes to fulfill, delivery times will vary depending on weather conditions and the restaurants themselves.

Drivers pay restaurants in advance and collect payment from the customer upon delivery, Kabi said.

Kabi and co-owner Shelly Peas both are from larger metropolitan areas where restaurant delivery is not uncommon. Having tired of pizza and Chinese food, the pair developed Takeout Express about seven weeks ago.

Takeout Express currently employs nine and has plans to open six locations by December. The first expansion will come in June in North Little Rock, and a second one will be in Saline County. It is currently located in west Little Rock off Rodney Parham.
