Favor is now available in 14 cities nationwide and in Canada.
For the launch, the company is offering its first time customers in D.C. free delivery using the promo code “District.” The company employs errand runners which will fetch anything from “burritos to iPhone chargers, in under an hour.” Favor has apps for both iPhone and Android smartphones.
“With the city’s rapidly expanding tech industry and thriving cultural scene, we know that residents keep a busy schedule — and we look forward to helping make their lives that little bit easier,” Jag Bath, Chief Executive Officer and President of Favor, said in a news release.
Favor, founded in 2013, has received $16.9 million in venture funding to date. With its latest investment of $13 million received in March, the company is continuing its expansion into new cities.
