On Thursday at 11 am, life will get a little easier for people living in Katy and Sugar Land. Favor, the popular delivery app that allows users to have just about anything delivered, has added the two Houston suburbs to its roster.
People in downtown, west Houston, and The Woodlands have already come to rely on the app as a convenient way to have food, groceries, household items, and more delivered. A Favor "runner" purchases the items and delivers them for a $5 fee plus an optional tip.
According to Favor, the average delivery time is about 35 minutes, which helps it attract devoted fans. Over 40 percent of orders are made by people who use the app at least five times per month. The app is so popular that sales are projected to grow four times in 2016 compared to 2015.
In Sugar Land, the delivery stretches from Highway 90 almost all the way to the Bravos River north to the south; it includes most of First Colony, New Territory, and Sugar Creek but not points north like Sugar Mill or Covington Woods. The Katy delivery area runs from on the north I-10 to the Westpark Tollroad on the south east-to-west between Fry Road and Katy Mills Mall, which includes Cinco Ranch and its surrounding neighborhoods. Hours of operation in both cities are 11 am until 10 pm seven days per week.
To celebrate the new cities, Favor will deliver a free Chick-fil-A Original Chicken Sandwich starting at 11 am on Thursday, October 27, (one per customer, no additions, no substitutions) in Sugar Land, Katy, and Houston.
