INDIANPOLIS, Ind. - Drizly, the technology company powering fast, convenient beer, wine and liquor delivery across the United States, and Big Red Liquors, the largest Indianapolis-area package liquor retailer, today have announced a strategic partnership to bring responsible alcohol delivery to consumers in the Indianapolis area.
Indianapolis becomes the 8th major metropolitan market served by Drizly, joining Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, New York and Washington D.C. Areas in Indianapolis where Drizly is now available to consumers include Broad Ripple, Brownsburg, Downtown, Fishers, Fletcher Place, Fountain Square, Geist, Irvington and Meridian-Kessler. Additional areas will be announced as they become available.
With a proprietary Forensic ID Verification technology, Drizly will offer Indianapolis consumers of legal drinking age Big Red’s extensive inventory of products right from the Drizly smartphone app or Drizly.com, all delivered conveniently to your door.
So whether you are watching the big game with friends, hosting a dinner party, or planning office happy hour, Drizly takes the trip to the store out of the equation with a convenient, safe and reliable solution for ordering beer, wine and liquor.
"Leading retailers across the U.S., like Big Red, are embracing cutting edge technologies to answer their customer's desire for convenient alcohol delivery, if it can be done responsibly,” said Nick Rellas, co-founder and CEO of Drizly. "Big Red is particularly focused on doing delivery the right and responsible way, and with Drizly's proprietary ID verification technology we were uniquely positioned to help them provide added convenience to their loyal customers."
DRIZLY: AS CONVENIENT AS ORDERING PIZZA
To use Drizly, consumers simply download the free app to their smartphone (iPhone and Android) or log on to www.Drizly.com, confirm they are of legal drinking age, and are then given access to thousands of products from Big Red's inventory, all at the same price as in the store. With a few taps of the finger, the consumer's beverages of choice are selected, paid for via credit card, and delivered conveniently to your door.
Before products are handed to the consumer, the Big Red delivery driver confirms the age of those accepting the order using Drizly's propriety ID verification technology. If the consumer is not of age, or appears inebriated, the delivery driver does not complete the purchase.
"Adding the convenience of smartphone and Web ordering, and fast delivery, to the Big Red experience is something we are thrilled to offer to our loyal customers," said Don Rix, President of Big Red Liquors. "But more importantly, Drizly's proprietary technology enables us to meet growing consumer demand in a way that is safe and responsible."
