Dropoff , Inc Acquires Rightaway Delivery , Inc . After 23 Years of Success in Michigan

DROPOFF EXPANDS FOOTPRINT ACROSS THE U . S .
We are pleased to announce that Dropoff has officially acquired Rightaway Delivery , Inc . An essential part of our company ’ s growth strategy is to provide new and existing customers with coverage nationwide and an enterprise-level solution . Through its acquisition of Rightaway , Dropoff ’ s service footprint now extends deeper into the Midwest . Rightaway Delivery was founded in 1999 by industry veteran Benjamin Kaplan , to provide healthcare businesses in Michigan with the best delivery experience possible . Over the last 23 years , Rightaway Delivery has grown to service cities across Michigan , Ohio , and Indiana .
In January 2022 , the Rightaway team finalized a transaction to sell the company and its assets to Dropoff , Inc ., an Austin , TX-based national firm and one of the leaders in the same-day delivery industry . After tremendous growth in 2021 , Dropoff now operates in 53 markets across 20 states . Benjamin Kaplan , the former Rightaway CEO , will be joining Dropoff as Director of Strategic Accounts to ensure the transition goes smoothly . When asked why he believed selling to Dropoff was the right choice , Benjamin had this to say , “ When the Dropoff team flew me to Austin , the first thing that impressed me was the people . Not only were they friendly but they had the same energy and focus on the healthcare industry that Rightaway did just at a national level .’
This acquisition continues Dropoff ’ s expansion , as it provides access to more customers in the midwest , and will enable rapid expansion in servicing a wide range of customers in the surrounding areas . In addition to this , Rightaway Delivery was already working with an impressive list of customers , that Dropoff can now provide service to at a national level . Dropoff founder / CEO , Sean Spector , added , “ As we learned more about Rightaway ’ s history in Michigan , we realized the opportunity and synergy between the two companies was quite strong .” CLDA
