June 9, 2016 – Drizly, the technology company transforming the way consumers buy alcohol online across the U.S. and Canada, today announced the extension of its partnership with ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, Florida's largest wine and spirits retailer, to bring on-demand alcohol delivery to South Florida. Legal-age consumers in downtown Ft. Lauderdale and Coral Springs will now be able to use the Drizly mobile app or website to shop and order from thousands of ABC's alcohol beverage products with delivery in less than one hour.
By simply downloading the free Drizly mobile app on iOS and Android devices or by visiting Drizly.com, consumers can receive convenient alcohol delivery directly from one of the two ABC store partners in Broward County. Once downloaded, consumers will find a shopping experience that is informative, customized and fun. The virtual shelves are populated with the same large selection of beer, wine and spirits found in ABC stores.
“The success we've seen in Tampa has far exceeded our expectations and our partnership with ABC is truly the reason why Drizly took off in the market," said Nick Rellas, co-founder and CEO of Drizly. “Given the success, we're looking forward to expanding our partnership with ABC into South Florida and hope we can bring a unique experience to consumers in this area."
Last November, Drizly and ABC Fine Wine & Spirits introduced, for the first time ever, on-demand alcohol delivery to the Tampa market. The combination of the technology savvy residents and the young professional population made Tampa a strong market for both partners. Top selling items remain in line with other top Drizly markets, with Tito's Handmade Vodka, Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc, Mark West Pinot Noir and Coors Light being among the top sellers.
"At ABC we're constantly working to improve the shopping experience for our customers around the state. Partnering with Drizly in the Tampa and St. Pete markets gave us the opportunity to deliver the exceptional quality and pricing people expect directly to their doorsteps. Now, we're excited to bring that same convenience to our customers in South Florida," said ABC Fine Wine & Spirits CEO Charles Bailes, III.
As a special welcome to new users in downtown Ft. Lauderdale and Coral Springs, Drizly is offering $10 off all first-time orders ($20 min. purchase) with the promo code DRIZLYABC.
