FetchMe, an Auburn-Opelika based delivery service, is offering local residents the opportunity to have products delivered to them with little to no hassle.
The service, founded in 2016 by Auburn University graduate Harrison Evola, was started in response to him seeing that there was a missing piece to most food delivery options’ service models. Evola said he believes his company stands out from others because of the wide array of products it delivers.
“It delivers not only restaurant foods, but groceries, coffee and snacks. Customers can have anything delivered to them except for alcohol and tobacco. We have an on-demand option as well so if a customer wants a restaurant that is not on our list they can still request that as well,” Evola said.
The company already delivers meals from 63 area restaurants.
Currently, Evola said he is in the midst of an expansion to Opelika, with plans to expand to other universities and towns in the near future.
Evola said his company’s main goal is to serve their customers in the safest, quickest, most enjoyable way possible.
FetchMe has more than 30 drivers, and are always hiring.
The delivery fee starts at $2.49 per order,and extra distance charges will be applied at $0.50/mile for orders two to four miles from the restaurant and then $1/mile after four miles with a maximum of 15 miles. Grocery delivery starts at $4.49 and has the same extra distance charges.
FetchMe is open seven days a week from 9-11 a.m. for breakfast, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. for lunch and 4-11 p.m. for dinner. They also have a late-night option on Fridays and Saturdays from 11 p.m. – midnight.
