Austin Startup, Favor, Expands to Dallas

Austin-based delivery app startup, Favor, announced their launch in Dallas earlier this week.

“We launched last summer in Austin, and things have been moving super fast — we have over 400 runners now that serve the Austin area, and are so excited to be in Boston and Dallas now,” says Zac Maurais, Cofounder and CMO of Favor.

Zac started Favor with his best friend from highschool, Ben Doherty. Since their launch in Austin last year, “Favor brought local businesses over $3M in additional sales revenue. In moving to Dallas, Favor brings nearly instantaneous delivery of anything to anyone in downtown Dallas,” according to a recent public release.

Favor’s service connects customers with “runners” that deliver “from store to doorstep.” Using the Favor iPhone or Android app, their algorithm finds the best driver for the job and customers can pay and rate the service through the app.

“We expect our deep network in Austin to have a network effect on growth in Dallas,” said Favor CEO and Co-founder Ben Doherty. “Our expansion into Dallas shows that Favor is continuing to thrive in the competitive delivery market and willing to blaze the trail into new cities.”

Favor’s business hours for Dallas will be from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., with deliveries available for the SMU, University Park, downtown and Highland Park neighborhoods. Check out the specific delivery area here on the website!

favor“With Favor hitting Dallas, anyone in the delivery area will now be able to get their favorite foods delivered from long-time Dallas favorites, especially those that don’t currently offer delivery: a tasty burger from Hopdoddy, treats from Smallcakes, or the shaved ribeye sammich from Uncle Uber’s. All these and more can now arrive at your door, hot from the kitchen.”

And if you’re a first time user, using the code “FavorTX” will waive the delivery fee! Simply head to the App Store or Play Store to download and signup, or visit http://bit.ly/tryfavor!

Welcome to Dallas, Favor!
