5 Delivery Services You Should Be Using

On Monday nights you’re strict with yourself. It is the start of the week and you have Napoleonic motivation; every email has been responded to and all reports are sent out. You probably even made a nutritious veggie stir-fry for dinner and scrolled through all your Instagram stories. As the week drags on and the workload piles up, you begin to wonder how you ever survived with just two hands. It’s times like these where living in a city pays off because delivery services are sprouting up left and right to accommodate the ever increasing pace of modern lifestyles.

We rounded up our favorite local delivery services in an attempt to take some weight off your shoulders. Adding these helpful companies into your weekly routine is guaranteed to lower your workload and add temptation to your diet. Here are the five delivery services we can’t believe you’re living without.

Caviar | Food Delivery From Your Favorite Restaurants

In the past, Domino’s and Pizza Hut were the best/only choices in the way of speedy food delivery. Now that Caviar moved into town, delivery options just got a huge upgrade. Caviar partners with independent restaurants to offer quick and quality home delivery. You can feast on your favorite local fare without moving from the couch! What sets Caviar apart from other food delivery services is the amount of care and intention they put into ensuring that your food gets to you as hot, crisp, creamy, or cold as it was when it left the restaurant.

Craving an extra lazy Saturday? Caviar yourself cold-pressed juice from Liquidology for breakfast, sandwiches from Block Butcher Bar for lunch and a Hot Italian pie for dinner. And then send some our way!Alina Tyulyu - 7.28 - Caviar - Alina-5 Alina Tyulyu - 7.10 - Hot Italian-Cookies - Alina-16
