Uber has announced it has acquired “Drizly” (North America’s largest alcohol delivery service) for 1.1 Billion dollars in cash and stock. Currently Drizly meets the retail alcohol requirements in 1,400 cities across North America and continues to pursue approval in other jurisdictions. The plan is to integrate Drizly into the Uber Eats app. For Drizly this represents 8 years of development in building technology, infrastructure, and partnerships with retailers. When the deal is finalized Drizly will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Uber.
