Toronto-based Hurrier, an online bike delivery startup that transports fresh eats on demand from top restaurants, announced its intentions today to expand outside of the GTA. The startup will officially launch delivery services in Montreal this September and Vancouver in October.
“We’re eager to give Montreal and Vancouver residents the same choice of their city’s best local restaurants, and excellent and fast meal delivery that we’ve been offering Torontonians for nearly three years,” said Hurrier founder Adam Hasham.
Operating out of Toronto for the last three years, the HIGHLINE portfolio company has built an impressive stable of 140 different partner restaurants in #the6ix. Hurrier promises another 50 to be added by the end of summer, and is already signing restaurants in Montreal and Vancouver ahead of their impending launches. Hurrier’s key differentiator is an average delivery time of 30 minutes, which it attributes to its unique algorithm that provides the optimal route and rider for each order.
When asked why Hurrier was focusing specifically on Canadian cities, and Montreal and Vancouver in particular, for its expansion, Hasham responded that “neither city has great delivery options and more importantly because we’re big believers in Canada’s growth.”
