Remember Kozmo.com? During the dotcom bubble you could order a candy bar from their website, and for about what you’d pay at Plaid Pantry they’d deliver it to your door via orange scooter, or sometimes bicycle. I can’t imagine how that business model failed! 😉
It’s been a long wait, but the idea has returned to Portland, but with a Portland-style twist: all deliveries are by bicycle.
Hunger Squad begins offering its service today. There’s a $10 minimum order, and currently they only deliver to the downtown area.
