Postmates Brings On-Demand 'Anything' Delivery To Honolulu

The On-Demand Originator is Bringing the Best of the City to Residents' Doors in Minutes; New Honolulu Customers Enjoy $100 in Free Delivery Credit

HONOLULU and SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Postmates, the only on-demand platform that can deliver anything from anywhere, today announced its launch in Honolulu, its first market in Hawai'i. As of today, people in Honolulu can download the Postmates iOS or Android app and begin ordering from local restaurants and merchants -- and have all their favorites delivered to their door in minutes. From fast food to trending eateries, to runs for Starbucks coffee, sushi, malasadas or a last-minute drugstore item, Postmates helps you get whatever you need, whenever you need it.

Former Miss Hawaii, Emily Wo, receives a Postmates delivery. With Postmates, Honolulu residents can order anything from anywhere for just $3.99. From fast food to trending eateries, to runs for Starbucks coffee, sushi, malasadas or a last-minute drugstore item, Postmates helps you get whatever you need, whenever you need it.

To celebrate the launch, Postmates is hosting a series of promotions, including $100 in free delivery credit for new Honolulu customers, a partnership with former Miss Hawai'i, Emma Wo, to highlight her favorite foodie spots (now available on Postmates), and a roving truck delivering Aoki's shave ice so fast it "won't melt." Postmates is also teaming up with Alaska Airlines and Virgin America for a #vacationdelivered offer to "postmate" six mainland visitors to Hawai'i.

"We are excited to be launching in Honolulu as the first large-scale on-demand 'anything' company to land in Hawai'i," said Bastian Lehmann, co-founder & CEO, Postmates. "Unlike other on-demand services, Postmates sees the cities we operate in as our warehouses. We bring the best of your city to your door, by making every merchant and restaurant accessible through the Postmates app. We're thrilled to help deliver the best of paradise in minutes -- to Honolulu residents and visitors alike."

Postmates supports local businesses. Working with local partners on the mainland, Postmates has helped small businesses better compete against retail goliaths. Typically, local merchants see 4X revenue growth after joining the Postmates platform -- as it allows them to expand their reach to new customers.

To order, visit Postmates.com or download the Postmates app on iOS or Android. New customers in Honolulu can enjoy $100 in free delivery credit through December 14, 2017. Postmates average delivery time is 35 minutes or less, and delivery fees are $3.99. Postmates also offers a subscription service, Postmates Unlimited, which is free delivery from all merchants, when you spend $20 or more, for $9.99 per month. Postmates initial service will include all of Honolulu (including Mānoa and the Univ. of Hawai'i campus), Kaneohe and Kailua.

To celebrate bringing the best of Honolulu to you, Postmates teamed up with former Miss Hawai'i, Emma Wo, to highlight her favorite foodie spots, now available on Postmates (insert link).* Postmates is also delivering free Aoki's Shave Ice -- so fast, it won't melt -- around Honolulu from November 20-24 by food truck. The Postmates Shave Ice Truck will stop by the Main Public Library, the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, and Kaka'ako, then will wrap up the week at the "Eat the Street" food truck festival. Open up the Postmates app to see where the truck is, or follow us on Instagram and check out Instagram Stories for ice cold updates.

In addition to bringing on-demand delivery to residents, Postmates can help visitors enjoy the best the islands have to offer without leaving the beach -- from forgotten sunscreen to trying out a Mānoa restaurant without leaving Waikīkīi. Postmates is teaming up with Alaska Airlines and Virgin America to "postmate" six lucky winners from the mainland to Hawai'i. Winners will receive direct round-trip flights to Honolulu, three nights in a hotel and $500 in Postmates credits. California residents can order food delivery from any merchant in the Hawaiian or Poke collection on our app to enter. More on the #VacationDelivered offer and official rules here.

Postmates has the largest on-demand delivery fleet in the U.S. of more than 100,000 Postmates, who operate in more than 250 cities and provide access to over 250,000 merchants. Postmates is the largest on-demand delivery app in Los Angeles -- the largest consumer market in the U.S. The business now completes 2.5 million deliveries a month and is on track to sell $1 Billion in goods on the platform in 2017. As the originators of on-demand 'anything,' Postmates gives customers access to merchants that were previously inaccessible online.
