I adore a good NYC startup business, don’t you? I was delighted to recently find out about MaxDelivery, founded by New Yorker Chris Siragusa, a service that brings you everything you need, when you need it (as in one hour or less!), by (drum roll please!) speedy bicycles!
Now, some of you skeptics may be thinking, “yeah, but isn’t that kind of the same thing as Amazon Prime Now?” Nope, it sure isn’t! Here’s why: In addition to being able to order household staples that you may have ran out of but need NOW (think diapers for you parents, olive oil for you aspiring chefs, wine for the hostess running behind schedule, and toilet paper and coffee for everyone else!), you can also order Best of NY products that certainly can’t be found on Amazon Prime Now (trust me, as an Amazon junkie, I’ve looked!)
On my most recently MaxDelivery order I got lots of NYC treats delivered…sunshine infused cupcakes from Sugar Sweet Sunshine (cause it was #TreatYosSelf Tuesday, of course!), hazelnut spread from Fika (the perfect topping for breakfast toast!), and coffee from Stone Street Coffee (cause new mom!;-) Yay for supporting local startups AND small businesses!
Also, unlike Amazon Prime Now, all deliveries are made via bike and there’s a reusable bag program in place to limit waste, which helps our good city to further reduce its carbon footprint (and I’m sure you remembered what I have to say on that topic…so important!)
MaxDelivery is currently serving Manhattan residents located between Wall Street to 90th Street, and all summer long you can get your goodies delivered for free with the coupon code SUMMERTIME. I predict a lot more cupcakes in my future!
