February 8, 2022

Coco, a Los Angeles-based remotely piloted delivery service, has announced service for customers in Austin, Texas. The company said it also plans to expand to Dallas, Houston, and Miami in the next few months, supported by its recent Series A funding round of $56 million.

Compared to traditional delivery methods, Coco said it has a 30% decrease in time-to-customer and an on-time delivery rate of 97%. The company has been operating across several major L.A. neighborhoods with its robots.

“We’re excited that Coco is launching their first-ever expansion outside of California and bringing their innovative technology to Austin,” said Roland Pena, senior vice president of Global Tech and Innovation at the Austin Chamber of Commerce. “Coco was founded on the same entrepreneurial spirit that Austin has been embracing for decades. Their dedication to a streamlined service that simultaneously reduces costs, increases consistency and helps our businesses connect with customers in a sustainable way fits right into the Austin region’s identity of ingenuity, customer success and business profitability.”

CocoAustin300pxCoco launched in Auston with 10 partners, including Arpeggio Grill, Bamboo Bistro, Clay Pit, DeSano Pizzeria, Tuk Tuk Thai, and Aviator Pizza, and will continue to onboard over the coming weeks to accommodate interest from other merchants. The initial launch will serve customers in the South Lamar, South Congress, South Austin, Downtown, Northside, North Loop and Domain neighborhoods of the city.

“We’re excited about the new partnership with Coco this month,” said Jimmy FitzGerald, owner of DeSano Pizzeria Napoletana. “The Coco team has been on the ground getting everything ready to kick it off. Our DeSano teams here in Austin are very excited about this new ground-breaking delivery platform at both locations. It’s helping us look at delivery in a whole new way.”
