The Palo Alto-based Fluc, or Food Lovers United Company, takes hundreds of local restaurants and delivers food to people in under 45 minutes for a flat rate charge of $6. The startup, founded about a year ago, just launched its services in Redwood City and, with a 250-signature petition complete, Fluc will be coming to Burlingame soon. When Fluc launches in a city, its residents can order from any restaurant in the city.
The local angle is interesting too
Bryce Nelson, a 16-year-old living in Burlingame, put together the petition to bring Fluc to Burlingame after hearing rave reviews from friends living in Menlo Park and Palo Alto who used the service.
“I finally got to try it out for myself when I was at a friend’s house in Palo Alto, and it was absolutely amazing — a Fluc driver brought me a sandwich from CREAM, just like a delivery guy would do for pizza,” he wrote in an email.
So, six bucks is six bucks, but if the teens have the dough, then Fluc should deliver the goods. I just noticed a new prepared-dinner delivery business on California called Dinner-Licious. It's probably been there for months, but new to me.
