Drinks delivery app gets $1.1m to expand

An on-demand alcohol delivery app has secured US$1.1 million from private investors to expand its service into more US cities.

Thirstie allows users to search a database of alcohol and order it instantly, with the closest liquor merchant delivering it within an hour. The app also offers users appropriate serving suggestions and cocktail recipes. So far more than 100 retailers have partnered with the app.

It has already launched in major US cities including Los Angeles, Miami, New York City and Austin in Texas, with the additional funding set to allow it to launch in even more cities.

Devaraj Southworth, CEO and co-founder of Thirstie, said: “By launching with $100K, we’ve demonstrated that we are a top player and ready to “hold our own” in the same conversation with competitors who have been aggressively spending investors’ capital before proving their model. Our objective from day one has been capital conservation. Now, with this new round of capital and our strategy fully validated, it’s go-time.”

Thirstie is available to download on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
