Hey Patrick, what is Drizly and how does it work?
Drizly is a mobile lifestyle app that is the fastest, most responsible way for smartphone users to get beer, wine and liquor delivered to their doorstep. Consumers of legal drinking age simply download the app to their smartphone and with a few taps of the finger; the consumer’s favorite beer, wine or liquor is on its way, in under an hour. Delivery drivers then authenticate and validate IDs using Drizly technology.
App available for iOS and Android as well as on the web at www.drizly.com.
How’d you guys come up with the idea?
Drizly began in 2012 when two friends – co-founders Nick Rellas and Justin Robinson –were curious why they couldn’t get beer delivered when nearly everything else had become so readily available through technology. That casual curiosity quickly evolved into a fascination (or obsession, as some would call it) on why technology hadn’t been able to integrate into regulated industries like alcohol. Before long, the two Boston College graduates started down a path to figure out a way to legally work within the system to make alcohol delivery a reality. In 2013, Drizly was born.
How long has Drizly been in Seattle? Is it Catching on?
Drizly launched in Seattle in early November 2014. In the 5 months we have been in Seattle, we have seen tremendous growth month over month. Seattle is one of the fastest growing markets for Drizly.
What are some of the top selling items? Does it vary by market.
Top selling items vary market to market. In Seattle, popular Drizly items include: Elysian Space Dust IPA, Absolut Vodka, and Bulleit Rye Whiskey.
Your logo looks awesome on our bikes! What do you think makes Freewheel a good fit for a Drizly promotion?
Freewheel is a great fit for Drizly. It’s young, fun, engaging and local; all of which are characteristics that Drizly aims to align with. Freewheel is just about as “Seattle” as it gets, and we love it!
Any chance folks reading this can score some sort of Drizly discount?
Absolutely. We’ve created the promo “FREEWHEELBLOG” for readers interested in testing out Drizly. They will get their first delivery for free and delivered within the hour!
