With a few taps of the finger, the consumer’s beverages of choice are delivered in 20-40 minutes.
“Our rapid American expansion brings us to the nation’s capital, where consumers who order through Drizly will appreciate the speed and convenience we’ve become known for across the United States,” said Nick Rellas, co-founder and CEO ofDrizly. “We are especially pleased to launch in D.C. with the explicit blessing of local regulators, and the best network of retail partners in that city.”
“More than one customer has said, ‘If Sherry’s doesn’t carry it, they don’t make it!’ And this why we chose Drizly,” said Ryan Wegman, director of wine & outreach for Sherry’s Wine & Spirits. “They have the stern-to-stem infrastructure necessary to carry our hefty inventory to customers in under 40 min. When you have 900+ craft beers & growlers, 1k+ whiskies & spirits, 2k wines, and the list goes on, you can’t cut corners on technology or support. We were approached by many of their competitors but Drizly was clearly up to the task from the starting gate thanks to their current investments and foresight.”
