On-Demand Delivery Companies See Uptick During Nor’easter

Delivery generic

A nor'easter Tuesday forced speed restrictions, SEPTA detours and other travel cancellations throughout the Philadelphia region, perhaps deterring many travelers though some drivers still took to the roads. The city's food-and-grocery delivery services saw upticks in orders from Philadelphians who opted to stay at home rather than travel to their destinations.

What was to be the season's biggest storm ended up bringing more rain and ice to Greater Philadelphia instead of the predicted foot or more of snow. That didn't stop officials from closing schools nor city residents from staying at home instead of braving the storm.

That turned out to be a boon for home-delivery services like goPuff, Caviar and Grubhub.
