Online Grocery Business Helps "Lazy" Students
Published January 9th, 2014
GAINESVILLE- A North Central Florida based delivery company is bringing the grocery store... To the dormitory.
In the middle of classes and studying, many students say they don't have the time to go shopping for day to day essentials.
Lazy delivery started in November and since has made more than 500 trips.
The idea came from a group of students who say they understand what it's like trying to juggle classes and getting groceries without proper transportation.
Lazy Delivery CFO, Marc Cherbel says he was one of those students, "I actually found it very frustrating that I couldn't go when I wanted to pick up the items that I needed."
For a delivery fee of 7 to 10 dollars, anyone in Gainesville city limits can place an order of up to 10 items at grocery stores throughout the city.
Cherbel says they hope to release a smartphone app for their business sometime early next week.
