“My grandparents founded Spec’s over 50 years ago on a promise to always do best for our shoppers, and Drizly makes it easy and convenient for shoppers today to enjoy all that Spec’s has to offer,” said Lisa Rydman, 3rd generation family at Spec’s. “As the leader in online alcohol e-commerce, Drizly was the natural fit to bring our vast inventory right to our customers’ fingertips and provide them with the convenience of delivery right to their homes and offices.”

“Spec’s is synonymous with the best in alcohol retail in Texas and we are honored to partner with them to bring the convenience of alcohol delivery in under 60 minutes to even more consumers throughout the state,” said Blaine Grinna, Director of Retailer Development at Drizly. “This partnership further proves that the time for retailers to get into alcohol e-commerce is now. We’re thrilled to be working with Spec’s to expand their customer base and take our already strong presence in the state to the next level.”
