When Austin asks for a favor, it tends to be for 520K tacos

When Austin asks for a favor, that favor tends to be for a taco – a ‘Trailer Park ‘Trashy’ on Flour,’ to be exact. Celebrating their two-year anniversary, Austin-based delivery service Favor is releasing data on the sorts of favors they’ve been asked to do.

It’s probably not a big surprise, but here in Austin we have strong hankerings for tacos. We also, apparently, have a strong hankering not to head into the heat to get them ourselves. In fact, this pair of preferences are so strong that it takes Favor a veritable army of over 900 runners to deliver all those tacos (and other stuff). Which actually isn’t that many if you consider we’ve requested over a million tacos and burgers combined -- and that excludes everything else. 

I don't know about you, but I just got a craving for a taco.
