Now, every morning, the chefs at Teaism prepare salty oat cookies and sandwiches and load them into a Honda Element owned by Zipcar so they can be delivered to the restaurant's two other District locations before noon. Brown figures the shared-car service saves her a couple of hundred dollars a month on gas and parking.
