Customers will not only be able to enjoy their favorite food truck grub from the comfort of their own homes but also pair their meals with a variety of local beers including Yards, Love City and Victory a as well. Wokworks founder Brennan Foxman said, “In normal times, Wokworks runs a fleet of 14 food trucks at locations all over Philly, but COVID-19 has forced us to close over 80% of our locations. Wok cooking creates a special eating experience and ‘wok hey’ depends on enjoying it quickly after it’s made. goPuff offers a unique channel for us to not only reach a new segment of customers but also reach them quicker than all other delivery channels amidst the pandemic. It’s such a natural fit! Spicy stir fry, beer and maybe a snack – how can you say no?”
goPuff which has its roots in Philly was founded back in 2013 by Drexel students Yakir Gola and Rafael Ilishayev. The duo quietly debuted an app that would forever change the way we look at convenience stores and deliveries for that matter. Since then it has expanded into other metro markets around the U.S.
