The Evolution of Food Delivery Service

By Posted in - In Our Community & Restaurant PR + Hospitality PR on August 3rd, 2015

With the rise of services such as UberEssentials, Google Express, local produce delivery companies such as Papa Spud’s (former Clairemont client and still loved by our team!) and monthly snack subscription boxes, you can plan to have groceries and orders of most food items delivered to your door. But what about when you want just a little something, and you want it now?

“I want something sweet.” It’s a common phrase heard at the Clairemont House – especially in the afternoon hours after lunch.

One of the perks of working in Downtown Raleigh is all the great dining options. From Oakwood Cafe to Centro – and every food genre in between the two – chances are you can find it in Downtown Raleigh. What makes it even better is that more and more restaurants are offering delivery service. But even if your favorite lunch spot doesn’t deliver, chances are you can get a third party food marketplace, like Order Up, to bring it to you.

But if you’re like me, after you finish your lunch you tend to get a craving for something sweet. Enter Insomnia Cookies and it’s menu fit for a sweet-tooth of any size! Cookies, deluxe cookies, brownies and ice cream can be delivered until 3 a.m. Advertised to be delivered “fresh baked & delicious,” you can order your cookies with a pint of cold milk.

Clairemont’er Dana Hughens recently decided to give Insomnia Cookies a try to surprise her son, famous Lego reviewer and recent teen correspondent to Mix 101.5‘s Gene and Julie Show, while he was conducting a late night livestream with fellow Lego reviewers. We think Dana loved the cookie tracker and the delivery status functionality of the website just as much as her son liked the cookies.
