Uber-owned Drizly and Gopuff have joined forces to offer on-demand alcohol delivery to customers of legal drinking age. The partnership will give Drizly access to Gopuff’s inventory of beer, wine, and spirits, as well as expanding the number of stores available on the platform.
This collaboration comes after Gopuff’s recent inclusion in the Uber Eats app and is yet another step in the company’s plan to provide a seamless shopping experience for customers. According to Daniel Folkman, Gopuff’s Senior Vice President of Business, “Gopuff continues to drive the future of commerce by leveraging our network and infrastructure to innovate, improve and streamline the shopping experience wherever consumers make purchases online – on Gopuff, third-party platforms, social media, and beyond.”
The expansion of Drizly’s network of partners to offer convenient delivery options for drinks is an excellent move towards making alcohol more accessible. Blaine Grinna, Drizly’s Senior Director of Retail Ops, states that “Drizly’s infrastructure for alcohol e-commerce coupled with Gopuff’s network of commerce locations will extend the ease of on-demand delivery of beer, wine and spirits nationwide and help even more customers of legal drinking age shop the best drinks for the moment.”
This partnership between two industry giants not only benefits their respective companies but also expands the reach of alcohol delivery to more customers across the United States. According to reports, Gopuff Liquor & More, BevMo!, and Liquor Barn stores are now available on Drizly’s marketplace in 26 states, including Florida, Texas, New York, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, and more. The addition of nearly 20 new BevMo! stores to its platform marks notable expansions into Arizona and Washington, while increasing the network of Liquor Barn stores available for rapid delivery across Kentucky.
Drizly’s commitment to becoming the go-to shopping destination for all beverage alcohol occasions is evident in their continuous efforts to improve the shopping experience for their customers. As the alcohol e-commerce pioneer, Drizly offers one of the widest selections of adult beverages at a great value. “As we continue to build the best shopping experience for beverage alcohol, teaming up with Gopuff is our next step in offering consumers convenient delivery options for drinks,” says Grinna.
This partnership between Drizly and Gopuff highlights the importance of innovation and collaboration in the food tech industry. As the market continues to evolve and customer needs change, companies must adapt to meet their demands. With this partnership, both companies have shown their willingness to embrace new ideas and cater to the evolving needs of their customers.
In conclusion, the partnership between Drizly and Gopuff marks a significant milestone in the food tech industry. The incorporation of alcohol delivery into Drizly’s services expands their reach and offers more convenience to their customers.
