The most popular form of delivery is certainly attributed to the many wonderful meals cooked in local kitchens and delivered to homes across SF. At this point, most restaurants accept delivery in some capacity, so your favorite meal likely can be enjoyed in the comfort of your home. However, with the multitude of delivery apps and options, it can sometimes be tricky to track down which app a particular restaurant uses. The most popular apps delivering food from San Francisco establishments are UberEats, Caviar, DoorDash, Postmates, GrubHub, and Seamless.

With so many more people at home, the demand for in-home grocery delivery has risen drastically, and San Francisco-based Instacart has greatly expanded its workforce with thousands of additional shoppers. While some popular stores such as Whole Foods operate their own delivery services, Instacart delivers shopped items from Safeway, Sprouts, FoodsCo, BevMo!, Costco, and many others to San Francisco residents. Other useful options include Shipt, GoodEggs, Farmdrop, Walmart InHome Delivery, and Amazon Prime Now. Those interested in meal kit delivery can also try Blue Apron, Freshly, HelloFresh, EveryPlate, Dinnerly, and Daily Harvest among a host of others.


CVS and Walgreens have both greatly expanded their delivery services with free 1-2 day wait times on most prescriptions. This excellent service is a must for many individuals, but you can actually acquire your medicine even quicker if desired. All over-the-counter items are also available for purchase using either the Postmates or Instacart app to order from CVS, Walgreens, or Rite Aid. There are also multiple services such as Honeybee Health and NowRx specializing in quickly delivering prescriptions to your home.

Because a majority of San Francisco apartments do not have an in-unit washer and dryer, laundry can be quite a chore. Luckily, there is an easy way to have your dirty clothes picked up and returned freshly washed and dry-cleaned. Multiple companies such as Rinse, SFWash, Sudzee, Press, and SoapBox Cleaners do all the dirty work for you and return your clothes right to your door. Laundry can’t get much easier than this.

While many individuals spend much of their time at home, there are also plenty of essential workers who continue to need transportation and services for their vehicles. Thankfully, companies such as Yoshi, Filld, and Booster allow users to have their tank filled without visiting a busy gas station. Furthermore, you can continue to shop for auto parts or any other vehicle through the Autozone or Napa Auto Parts delivery service. Despite the difficulties we face by staying apart, it is still possible to get the services you need in San Francisco while maintaining social distance.
