Smartphone app "Favor" offers delivery service in Houston

HOUSTON – A new smartphone app that has been serving customers in Austin and Dallas since 2013 is now in Houston.

"Favor" is a mobile delivery service. The delivery area covers mostly central Houston, including: parts of the Heights, the Galleria, Midtown, the Medical Center, Rice Village and Downtown.

Drivers working for "Favor" will deliver a range of items, from food to dry cleaning to prescriptions, right to your front door. In return, users pay a $6 delivery fee, 5% of the cost of the item that they purchased, along with a tip for the delivery person.

Right now in Houston, "Favor" is offering a deal for first-time customers. Users can type in the promo code "CLUTCH" to waive that $6 fee.
