Favor delivers anything, from dry cleaning to high cuisine, to your front door while paying their runners a fair wage

Becoming a delivery person is not the most glamorous job, nor is it one that typically pays particularly well. However, a new app might change how people think about deliveries and the people who bring them to their front door. Favor allows for delivery from any store, restaurant, or service while having their runner paid a fair wage.

Zack Maurais and Ben Doherty co-founded the company in Austin, Texas, and were inspired by their time as pizza deliverymen. After going through two different incarnations of the service, the first which delivered burritos and beer, the app has now expanded to fit almost all needs and errands. Through Favor, you can select items for purchase and pay with your credit card, so there’s no need to have cash on hand.
