[:en]It always seems like the big guys are the only ones who have the resources to do the latest and greatest things consumers demand.
Well, thanks to Lula, that’s no longer the case with online delivery.
Lula takes a 0% commission, but still allows c-stores of any size to deliver to customers via Uber Eats, DoorDash, Postmates, Grubhub and other delivery marketplaces.
If Lula doesn’t take a per-order commission, how do they make money?
They charge a $50 – $99 per month subscription fee for each c-store in your chain.
The c-store industry traditionally gets ignored by big tech companies. So Lula is filling the need.
And they recently just landed $5.5 million in seed funding to expand their operations.
Please understand that we have no business relationship with Lula. We are not advertising for Lula.
We simply want to make you aware of a service that could greatly increase your revenues in an economy where you don’t even know if you can keep your c-store open or not.
What Inspired Lula’s Founding?
Entrepreneurs Adit Gupta and Tom Falzani broke their backs trying to help Gupta’s parents keep their New Jersey c-store alive during the initial stages of the COVID pandemic.
But, it ended up closing in mid-2020 anyway.
The store, unfortunately, was unable to offer online ordering with delivery because it was just that single store.
Online order and delivery consumed too much time and money to be worthwhile.
Gupta and Falzani decided to solve that problem with Lula.
And the service is now growing 30% per month and has a goal of being active in all 50 states by the end of 2022.
The platform has grown in popularity so rapidly that the NACS featured it prior to one of its conferences.
Lula Simplifies Delivery to the Extreme
Adding a delivery option for a smaller c-store chain is exceptionally difficult.
But with Lula, you can easily manage your inventory and deliveries from a single tablet.
The platform simply takes your inventory and syndicates it across all delivery marketplaces.
That’s it. That’s all there is to it.
And to top it off, they have exceptional customer service.
It’s quite an amazing app. And every c-store chain is using it.
