Drizly is an Internet-based alcohol delivery service in several American cities and in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Known as the "Uber for liquor," Drizly lets users order a variety of beer, wine, and spirits directly to their location through a mobile app. Drizly was founded by Nick Rellas and Justin Robinson, two Boston College graduates, in 2012 when they encountered the question of why almost anything was available through an app — except for beer. They realized the alcohol business had not changed its ways since Prohibition ended, and they began to figure out how to integrate technology into the industry. The company launched its service in the greater Boston area in 2013, then expanded to New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Drizly, which currently employs about 60 people in its Boston office, plans to increase its number of employees to 80 by the end of 2016. Drizly is available in 18 U.S. markets: Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Hoboken/Jersey City, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New Orleans, New York City, Portland, Providence, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa and Washington D.C. In February 2016, it expanded to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada through a partnership with Liquor Stores N.A. (LSNA), one of North America’s biggest liquor retailers and the parent company of Liquor Depot.
