GoPuff's on-demand delivery service is now available in Lincoln.

A fast-growing, on-demand delivery service is now in Lincoln.

GoPuff, which offers daily delivery of more than 2,000 food, consumer and household items, said it started operating Tuesday in the capital city.

The Philadelphia-based startup stocks the items in a central warehouse in each city in which it operates and offers deliveries through an app for a flat $1.95 fee per order.

The app is available for both Apple and Android devices and can be downloaded through the respective app stores.

GoPuff offers many of the same products you could buy in a grocery or convenience store, including packaged foods, beverages, toiletries, over-the-counter medicines and even pet products.

Deliveries will be available in Lincoln from noon-4:30 a.m. seven days a week, the company said in a news release.

According to a map on the goPuff website, deliveries are available only to part of the city, basically an area bounded by Superior Street, 70th Street, Pioneers Boulevard and Interstate 80/U.S. 77.

To celebrate its entry into Lincoln, the company is offering all customers who sign up for an account and place their first order of at least $9 by Feb. 3 a complimentary pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.

“GoPuff’s mission is to create more time in the day for our customer by consistently redefining the very meaning of convenience to provide a high-quality experience at an exceptional value,” Rafael Ilishayev, goPuff co-founder, said in the news release. “We’re thrilled to bring our experience to Lincoln and deliver the moments that matter most to this vibrant community.”

Ilishayev and fellow Drexel University student Yakir Gola founded the company in 2013. It now operates in 60 cities, including Omaha.
