Postmates picked a perfect day to launch Postmates Pop food delivery in NYC

Postmates picked the perfect day to launch its Postmates Pop instant food delivery service in New York City. The firm is filling an instant food delivery void recently left by UberEats, which just killed its 10-minute on-demand food delivery service.

Postmates Pop offers three or four prepared meals each day that it promises will be delivered within 15 minutes. You won’t pay a delivery fee, only the price of your lunch and – if you’re kind – hopefully the tip to whoever delivers it. The service is available in Manhattan between Bowery and 34th street, which is a sizable portion of the city but totally misses the Financial District and most of midtown where there’s probably a large demand from corporate lunchers.

Here’s a look at the menu. If anything strikes your fancy, just open the Postmates app and order away.
