New alcohol-delivery service gears up for holiday weekend

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Drinko’s, an alcohol-delivery service has been up and running in Dayton since Thursday afternoon.

Rachel Ennis, is the vice president of marketing for the company and says the first twenty four hours were hectic.

Drivers made dozens of deliveries to Dayton area homes and workers responded to more than five hundred inquiries about the new business.

“Which was way more than we expected,” Ennis said.

2 NEWS asked how is Drinko’s making sure minors don’t get served.

Ennis said company drivers must pass the Ohio Alcohol Server Knowledge program to learn how to spot a fake I.D.

“It’ll teach them how to make sure the photo hasn’t been tampered with,” said Ennis. “They’ll check the credit cards, they go to very good extremes to make sure that does not happen. We want people to enjoy responsibly and that definitely involves being 21 and older.”

The booze won’t be handed over to just anyone who’s 21 or older. Ennis said the order will only be given to the of-age person who ordered it online.

“As soon as you know we are on our way. Have your I.D. ready, cause without an I.D., and you’re over 21, you won’t be delivered to,” Ennis said, “If they have any inkling of doubt that they’re delivering to somebody who is not 21 or older, they take the delivery and they walk away.”

Drinko’s only delivers within a 20-mile radius of its north Dayton warehouse.

Ennis said all hands are on deck this Memorial day weekend with 20 drivers to make deliveries.
