The headline says most of what you need to know, except that MaxDelivery is trying to not repeat the mistakes that Kozmo made. They will have a lot of firsthand knowledge as the former CTO of Kozmo.com, Chris Siragusa, is heading up MaxDelivery. It’ll be cool to have a Kozmo-like delivery service out there, but one of the mistakes that Kozmo made that made it ‘cool’ was how cheap it was. Delivery was offered for a pack of gum for next to nothing if not free. But the upside is that if MaxDelivery becomes and stays profitable, it will stick around.
