Business Spotlight: LASH Delivery App

“Hey John, you drank the last beer! Whose going to go get more?” And so the conversation begins. Back and forth about who is leaving the party to grab more alcohol. Well, as the modern saying goes, “There’s an app for that!”

Yep, if you happen to live in south Frisco or Dallas then there is now an app to help you end those low alcohol party woes. LASH Delivery is an alcohol delivery app that is quickly expanding across all of DFW and currently serves southern Colin county and all of Dallas county.

This local company only launched a few months ago and is already making casual party planners lives easier. The fully TACB compliant company partners with local alcohol stores in the area the to pick up and deliver your favorite alcohol to your door or your party. Orders over $30 even have free delivery.

LASH Delivery Home

As a new start-up ourselves, we at love meeting interesting entrepreneurs with different business ideas. This writer also happens to be a fan of casual drinks with friends so when I heard about this startup I knew they were worth checking into.

I reached out to them and mentioned I’d love to meet. Since they currently don’t delivery to my residence we set up a delivery at another location. I was thrilled with the whole experience.

First, I download the app which is available on iOS and Androids. It was was a beautiful design and immediately made me thirsty. Hey, it’s five o’clock somewhere right?

Then I went through and checked the different sections. Depending on where you plan on having it delivered it shows different sections. As you can only sell wine and beer in Frisco that is all that it will show for the area, but we actually met outside of Frisco so it showed the “Spirits” section as well. That happens to be my favorite so I added a few different options to the cart. If you’re wondering I went the Bacardi, 360 Double Chocolate Vodka, and American Born Tea Moonshine.

LASH Delivery Beer

Each selection has a picture of the bottle on a white background, the price, and the size. The price is pretty much the same as you’d pay at a store. LASH Delivery makes their profit from the marketing budget of the local alcohol store they partner with for the area. This makes the service a simple and cheap option for party planners.

After selecting my alcohol of choice I set a time for delivery. When you place your order you can either order immediately and it comes in 30 to 90 minutes or you can schedule a two hour window up to a week in advance. Due to state laws LASH currently delivers Monday-Saturday from 1 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Personally, I think the legislature would be wise to make an exception for companies like this to expand their hours as they must certainly help keep the roads safer.

I met with Neha Nayyar, the companies brand representative as I was receiving my order. The driver didn’t actually know this was for an article at first. The delivery person arrived around 1:30 in the LASH-mobile and after checking my ID and having me sign off handed me my order in a custom LASH reusable bag. I thought the bag was a fantastic marketing touch and I certainly think about the company whenever I use it for other groceries.

The alcohol was all wrapped in a protective cover and the whole experience would have taken two minutes (had I not asked for a picture with the vehicle).

According to Neha the average order is about $40-$50 and there are currently 3 drivers though they hope to expand across Texas over time. They are focused on reaching people that plan dinner parties and are using social media, radio promotions, and digital media to get the word out. I expect they also get a lot of word of mouth marketing as well. I know that I’ve been telling friends about them since trying the service.

I highly encourage readers to give them a try and for those interested in doing so they did give me a code for our readers. When you check out on the app and use the code: “KeepItReal” without the quotation marks you’ll receive $5. That’s like a free six pack.

So go ahead and support a creative local business and give LASH delivery a try.
