Drizly, a popular alcohol delivery app operating in 40 areas throughout the United States and Canada, is making the rounds in Arizona. The app works by either ordering alcohol servers to deliver products to the recipient or placing it on reserve at a store. Drizly’s service charge is $5 and retailers partnered with the app can scan a photo ID to make sure the person is of legal drinking age.
Drizly gives opportunities for people to not wait in line at a bar and in addition to drinks, the app serves cocktail recipes, ice mixers and professional tips for mixing ingredients at home. The app also allows customers to shop for alcohol by category and filling them in on trends in the alcohol industry.
Within the Phoenix metro area, the app covers “Glendale, Peoria, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Gilbert, and Chandler,” per Brewbound. And the list of retailers partnered with the app includes ‘Lucky’s Liquor, Gary’s Liquor and Chandler Liquors.”
Drizly is an innovative way to order alcohol and like all apps there are bound to be customers. The delivery app has already taken in $35 million. The app falls under the category of food and drink, but what makes Drizly unique is one of the founders is Phoenix native Justin Robinson. He was exited to bring Drizly to the Phoenix metro area. Robinson, who is also senior vice president of new business says, “Phoenix is my hometown so bringing Drizly and all of its benefits here marks a very special milestone. I can’t wait for friends, and friends of friends, to discover how cost effective, transparent, rewarding and convenient Drizly makes shopping for alcohol. And, for Phoenix retailers to discover the wealth of data, inventory management tools and customer service benefits that Drizly offers.”
