There are so many companies jumping on the quick delivery service trend. Last month, we announced that Amazon Prime will now deliver alcohol to your door within an hour.
But what about groceries? Sometimes you really can't stand anymore take-out, and just need someone to bring you everything you need to cook your favorite home-cooked meal.
The grocery delivery service that used to require you to order your groceries a day in advance, has launched FoodKick, which promises to deliver cooking ingredients, prepared meals, and alcohol in as little as an hour from their new app.
Because it's a new service, FoodKick will only be delivering to some neighborhoods in Brooklyn and in Queens' Long Island City.
However, FreshDirect has plans to expand their FoodKick service to the rest of the city, and potentially to the rest of the country.
For the first 30 days, the company will offer free deliveries through FoodKick, but will then charge $3.99 for deliveries within two hours or longer, and $5.99 for deliveries within an hour of the order.
The prices on FoodKick will be similar to those on their main FreshDirect site, but will also include meals like made-to-order sushi by an on-site sushi chef, and croissants from Mille-Feuille.
They will also suggest bundles for things like tacos, where you will be prompted to pick your rice, beans, protein, and wraps, or even cocktail mixes (though, the alcohol is sold separately).
