Most food delivery apps outsource the actual deliveries to professional drivers or keep their own stable of trained drivers, but JoyRun is an app that hopes to circumvent that added cost while giving its own users the chance to engage with one another and earn some extra spending money. The California-based app, which was designed for colleges and has spread out to college towns all across the US, lets users either order food from available restaurants or do "joyruns," in which they accept all the orders for a given restaurant and deliver them to the various addresses.

Through the JoyRun app, "runners" can see who is making requests for which restaurants and head over to those places to make the pickups. On the consumer end, users can see which joyruns are in action and can join in before the order's been placed.
