Twins drop out of university to create delivery service for Black-owned businesses

- David Cabello and Aaron Cabello, a set of twins have become know for their determination and resilience

- The two dropped out of university to start their own delivery company, Black Mobile

- Black Mobile is reported as Philadelphia’s first Black-owned delivery service with focus on Black businesses

David and Aaron Cabello, are not just brothers, they are twins who have collaborated to create what many outlets are reporting as Philadelphia’s first Black-owned delivery service.

However, David struggled in school and was kicked out of three schools and even became a college dropout in his third semester.

Despite the challenges he faced, even in his adult life, David, braved the odds to start his own business, a delivery business, Black Mobile, with his brother Aaron as co-founder.

The twins partnered to start a company with focus on promoting Black-owned eateries and restaurants and to give them an opportunity to expand their customer base and remain active online.

David and Aaron launched their start-up company, Black Mobile, on February 22, 2019, and the business has been partnering with customers looking to have their meals delivered.

''At one point, the company was delivering for more than 20 businesses and even made its way to the top 7 percent of internet traffic for new Philadelphia businesses,'' quoted David in an interview.

That success happened in a city with only 2.5 percent of businesses that are Black-owned, according to a Pew Charitable Trusts report released in April 2019.

David got into the state’s Shippensburg University and while he spent most of his academic year on probation, he was able to turn his grades around the next year.

By his third semester, David had earned A’s and B’s on his progress report, but he didn’t stay at the school long enough to receive final grades. However, David dropped out that same semester.

His twin, Aaron, a long-time believer in his brother’s vision, did the same.

The two wanted to establish something on their own that could benefit them and their community.

David and Aaron have been able to raise over $15,000 funds already on Kickstarter, and they’re preparing to open 30 positions for a relaunch of their service in September 2019.
