Los Angeles Tech Startup Saucey Releases An On-Demand Alcohol Delivery App
Saucey launches Thursday May 8th to be the premier alcohol delivery app for the iPhone.
LOS ANGELES, May 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Mobile technology is consistently redesigning the way we live our lives. Saucey carries on that tradition by allowing customers to have alcohol delivered within 20-40 minutes at the push of a button. The simple and beautifully designed app enables you to drop a pin at your location, pick what you’d like and easily checkout with your payment information on file. Saucey controls the customer experience from start to finish and has its own drivers, therefore becoming the fastest, easiest and most reliable way to order alcohol. “It is important for us to bring our customers the best possible experience every time they order from Saucey. We couldn’t do that if we simply acted like a fax machine passing off orders for someone else to deliver. So, we control the entire delivery process, giving our customers a hotel room service like experience, with a trained Saucey driver personally handing them their order,” said Saucey CEO Chris Vaughn.
The app lets you place a Saucey order in seconds with tax, tip and delivery all included in the price. “I’ve been a beta user for two weeks and absolutely love it. It’s like Uber for alcohol. I ordered and it showed up in like 15 minutes. Plus, the driver was super friendly and read me an Irish drinking toast. It’s easy, I love it,” said Veronica Brown, an early Saucey user. In addition to helping local liquor store partners realize additional revenues and expand their customer reach, Saucey also donates a percentage of every sale to Charity Water–a nonprofit that provides clean drinking water to those who need it most. “I know it’s the trend for companies to be linked to a charity but it’s a good trend that we are proud to take part in. Sometimes we forget how fortunate we are, and if we can transform America’s drinking culture into a tool that helps those in need, then we’re doing something powerful. From now on when you drink, you can be helping someone get the clean drinking water they need.” said Vaughn.
The founding Saucey team is comprised of multi-time entrepreneurs who have known each other for years. CEO, Chris Vaughn’s previous mobile apps company Jarvus was acquired by textPlus in 2012, where he then ran digital marketing and partnerships for the US. Daniel Leeb, the head of product at Saucey, came from running the iOS teams at textPlus and was previously the Editor in Chief at Leveled Magazine, a Los Angeles based lifestyle publication. COO Nick Jacobs is a bar and restaurant entrepreneur who’s background in the alcohol, food delivery and service business drives operations and customer experience at Saucey. Chief Engineer Andrew Zeck was a lead engineer at textPlus, building the mobile platform from thousands of users, to over 50 million.
