GoPuff, the on-demand, food-delivery service that expanded to the Main Line last year, is about to boost its local presence with a warehouse in West Chester, writes Jordan McBride for Main Line Today.
GoPuff provides snacks, drinks, and a number of other items to customers all through the night. It was originally launched five years ago in Center City by Drexel University alums Yakir Gola and Rafael Ilishayev.
The service is popular with students, in part because the company owns all of its inventory, reducing both the cost and delivery time. However, unlike a lot of its competitors, the company does not just offer food delivery.
“At this point, delivery services are a dime a dozen,” said Jake Levin, GoPuff’s marketing director. “The problem that we’re solving is that there’s really no other delivery service bringing you the daily essentials that you might need right to your door.”
The company is popular enough that it is planning a huge expansion across the state, with 10 new warehouses expected to be constructed over the next three years in cities and towns where the demand warrants it. One of these will soon be opening in West Chester.
