People aren't going to do your work for you. It's best if you make your own start and then come to us when you come against a stumbling block :/

Be careful for what you ask and publish on forums. Another user recently applied for a thread to be deleted because the code (which was all his) he published could not then be used in his coursework (plagiarism rules). Threads, once replied to will not, if I understand it correctly, be deleted from Daniweb.

If you have no idea of how or where to begin on this simple assignment - ask yourself if you're taking the right course.

Some ideas of main elements:

1. Products list (e.g. catalogue-like system)
2. Orders (selectable from catalogue with quantity/price/running total/basket)
3. Payments and accounts if applicable (or pay delivery guy)
4. Confirmations (pages/emails)
5. Queue displays (fast food side)
6. Delivery guy assignment
7. Production/Delivery Completion confirmation

The above will be form and database driven.
Your DB design will be the key element to building a successful site.
Checkout some existing sites and gauge how they transfer data; how data is collated and how data items relate to one another.
MS Access has examples of product/order systems and there are plenty of online systems (varying in complexity).
