The University of Miami’s Dining Services and Student Government has partnered with mobile app, Favor, to deliver food to students from any of the university’s participating retail dining locations.
Per a report from The Miami Hurricane, Favor was officially launched on February 1, and anyone in the UM community can now leverage the app. The university has a number of eateries, both local and franchise locations, participating in the initiative including Pollo Tropical, Sushi Maki, Panda Express and more.
Delivery has been two years in the making for the university’s Student Government liaison for dining services.
“We felt there was a huge necessity for delivery, whether you’re studying in the library for finals or don’t have a moment to come up for air from a project,” says Rylee Bowles, Miami’s Student Government liaison for dining services. “Facilitating a delivery program was a high priority in our initiatives this semester.”
The app has averaged around 30 deliveries per week since going live. Favor deliveries are available from 11:00 a.m. to midnight daily, with food deliveries available from any participating location on campus for $3 and participating off-campus for $6.
The Favor app was originally launched in Austin, Texas in 2013 and has since scaled to 18 different cities across the U.S.
