The number of bicycle-based food delivery services in St. Louis has quadrupled since last year, growing from one to four. Currently, the companies include The Food Pedaler, The Bike Waiter, Spoked Couriers and GrubGo.
As these companies look to diversify their delivery portfolios, some have tried serving as couriers for businesses other than restaurants; Spoked Couriers, for instance, also delivers for a flower shop.
St. Louis isn’t alone. The market for bike delivery businesses appears to be heating up in other cities across the country, with one shop in Portland even offering hot tub delivery.
