MIAMI, FLORIDA (July 8, 2020) – Gopuff, a company delivering everyday essentials in minutes, has launched its fourth Miami-area facility just three months after making its debut in the city this April. To celebrate rapid expansion in the area, Gopuff is offering an unprecedented deal: free delivery for the rest of the year! The company also announced partnerships with some of Miami’s favorite local brands.
Not only can Miami customers now order thousands of everyday essentials like home cleaning products, personal care items, OTC medications, food, drinks & more, for delivery in minutes (and with no delivery fee!), but they can also order from and support local businesses via Gopuff. Today, Gopuff launched Miami-based Panther Coffee Roasters and Vegan Schmegan Bakery on its platform so customers can have some of their favorite local brands’ products delivered in minutes.
“We first entered the state of Florida just last year with our Tallahassee launch in February 2019 and quickly expanded to several cities within the state. Having launched to great reception in five other Floridian cities, we’ve been eager to launch in the state’s most populous city: Miami,” said Rafael Ilishayev, Gopuff co-founder and co-CEO. “We are so excited to be delivering in Miami to bring residents and visitors ultrafast access to everyday essentials and look forward to continued growth in this great city.”
Gopuff now operates in four Miami locations, including Fort Lauderdale, Wynwood, Miami Gardens and Miami North. Additionally, Gopuff operates over 15 facilities in the state of Florida in areas such as Orlando, Jacksonville, Pensacola, Tampa and Tallahassee. Local Florida businesses interested in having their own products listed on Gopuff can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gopuff also recently made a donation with the Miami Baptist Hospital System, part of Gopuff’s Health Care Support Initiative. Through this initiative, Gopuff has committed $1 million in orders to hospital employees across the country working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis. Gopuff partnered with the Miami Heat and Baptist Health South Florida to hold a Hospital Worker Appreciation Rally at Doctors Hospital in Coral Gables. Gopuff’s team, along with the Miami HEAT’s Burnie and the Miami HEAT Dancers passed out thousands of care packages filled with snacks, water, cleaning supplies & more to employees of Doctors Hospital working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis.
