When it comes to snacking, the market is convoluted with options. With people becoming more and more dependent and brand-loyal with marketing trends for diet and preference of store and delivery. GoPuff is a convenient delivery service available in nearly one hundred cities. Revolutionizing the on-demand snacking game, goPuff can deliver snacks in less than 30 minutes. Leading a new era of fine affordable chocolates, “Simply Chocolate” makes its splash in an international market.
goPuff is a revolutionary app that was developed to solve the need for twenty-four-seven service and delivery. It has made its name as America’s fastest-growing snack delivery service. With nearly one hundred different cities and nearly three thousand products on the website, it is no wonder it has claimed its fame.
In no more than 3 minutes, a goPuff account can be created and an order placed to service areas from simply going onto their website and browsing through their variety of useful and tasty products. goPuff currently features a selection of over 3000 products from pain relief medication and even cleaning supplies.
The app was developed by twenty-year-old college students, Rafael Illishayev and Yakir Gola. The pair had their business idea while they were business students studying at Drexel University in Philadelphia. They wanted to create a service that helps spend less time going to and from the store and more time for studying and socializing with peers. They spent day and night developing the app and eventually delivering their own goodies around campus in their Plymouth Voyager and needless-to-say, the business expanded.
GoPuff has central warehouse facilities where the goodies are distributed directly from warehouse to consumer. With 24-hour service options seven days a week, in the bigger markets, goPuff is a convenient and easy way to get snacks delivered at any time. Most markets behold noon to 4:30 am time window that makes it ideal for late-night sweet cravings.
Gola commented, “Rafael and I started the business with a small selection of convenience products and, after immediate interest on campus, we realized that the convenience store industry needed to be turned on its head. People no longer considered the convenience store to be convenient, and we felt we had found a way to revolutionize that space.
Half a decade later, the duo has goPuff in 90 markets and nearly 1000 employees. goPuff is unlike any other on-demand delivery service, there are no surge fees and a flat service fee of a humble $1.95. Average delivery takes around thirty minutes to receive to your doorstep.
Studying for an exam at two-in-the-morning or even an on-set delivery for LaLa Anthony, the star of the “Chi.” GoPuff makes anything accessible in a convenient way and eradicates the need for a third-party-pickup. With goPuff’s “Back to School” tour encouraging students to spend more time studying and with friends than making trips to and from stores for essentials and pick-me-ups. The goPuff app boasts a mascot that is a pufferfish.
