Following its March 1 expansion into the Rosslyn-Clarendon corridor, Ivy City-based Galley has now added Ballston and Virginia Square to its service map.
This is just the latest in a series of expansion moves for the roughly one-and-a-half-year-old food delivery startup founded by two LivingSocial alums. Back when Galley first began delivering in NoVa in March, the goal was to keep expanding into the area as demand grew. By that assessment, demand has grown.
As we explored in this profile, Galley has a certain advantage over the proliferating on-demand food delivery competition: Galley’s lunch and dinner meals are made for delivery. That means no cold Chinese or wilted salad — Galley’s food arrives attractive and ready to heat and eat. Oh, and they also deliver wine.
On the other hand, Galley isn’t quite as quick as a service like UberEATS. While on-demand delivery until 8:30 p.m. (within 30-45 minutes) is available in “certain neighborhoods,” Galley angles itself as a plan rather than a last-minute fix. “You feel like you cooked from scratch,” cofounder Alan Clifford told Technical.ly in September 2015. “Without any of the hassle.”
