You want it? He’ll bring it.
D and J’s delivers food from anywhere

D and J’s Delivery’s, created by Michael Bianchini, will pick up food from any restaurant and bring it to your door.
“People don’t always have time to do all they need to do in a day,” Bianchini said. “They have children and jobs. Or they are elderly, maybe incapacitated, and can’t leave the house, or someone at work who can’t leave to get a cup of coffee. Dunkin’ Donuts doesn’t deliver. You call me, tell me what you want, and I’ll deliver it. And with winter on the way, no one wants to go out in the snow.”
Bianchini was a Manchester taxi driver for 10 years before he moved to Virginia, where he worked at Wal-Mart. Then he transferred with the company back to the Manchester area. After a time, his entrepreneurial spirit started to rebel.
“It is a monster company. There is a rule book, a chain of command, and a way to do things. When I drove a taxi, the only people I had to answer to were the public,” he said.
D and J’s Delivery began service at the end of the summer. The business’s name has a bittersweet origin. The J comes from Bianchini’s daughter, Julianna, and the D is from his son, Dominic, who was killed by a drunk driver. “If my girlfriend and I have any more children, I guess I’ll have to change the name,” he said.
Bianchini is the delivery service for Thousand Crane and Koi Japan. Besides take-out food, he will also deliver items from places such as Wal-Mart, Rite-Aid and Lowe’s.
“I’ll deliver pretty much anything,” he said. “It’s illegal for me to transport people, and I’m still looking into whether or not I can transport alcohol.”
For now, the business is cash only. The charge is $6 for deliveries close to downtown Manchester, and $8 to $9 the father out Bianchini has to drive.
Bianchini envisions big things for his business down the road, but for now has just one part-time person to help with deliveries. Otherwise he does all the work, seven days a week. “You are whatever you believe you are. You make it happen. It’s up to you,” he said.
