Lunch Online is one of mine and it no longer works - we did it three
years ago as an experiment but it failed to take off because the
sandwich bars involved all insisted on a 10 minimum order. That meant
that you had to order at least two or three lunches at a time, which our
logs and feedback indicated was stopping most people from placing
orders, although the level of interest was extremely high. The sandwich
shops were all recruited because they already offered a fax delivery
service, and that was where the min order amount came from.
Unfortunately, it proved to be too high for almost all of our users so
we stopped the service after a few months - the best laid plans...
