A group of students from the University of Southern California developed an app called 'EnvoyNow' that solves a common problem for college students: the late-night munchies. Designed to help students enjoy something more satisfying than a vending machine granola bar, the app helps to bring full-fledged meals to hungry college kids anywhere on campus.
EnvoyNow is a student-based food delivery service that allows users to order food from restaurants that are located within a mile or two of their campus. Once the order is placed, a student envoy will bring the food directly to the user for a small delivery fee. The student envoys are paid based on commission, giving them an easy way to earn some extra cash without venturing too far off campus. The app also solves the issue of helping hungry students access food when other campus dining facilities have already closed.
Already in operation at schools such as the Michigan State University, the University of Florida and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the service is helping students enjoy tasty food on-demand.
