Alcohol delivery app, Klink, coming to Palm Beach County

BOCA RATON, Fla. - BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Tired of making runs to the liquor store?  Now there's someone who can do it for you.  Local developers have created an app that will deliver alcohol right to your door.

Klink is the name of it.  It was created last year.  And for the right price, you'll never have to leave your home again to pick up your favorite spirit.

In New York, Kiira Leess always had her favorite wine at her fingertips.

"I could order delivery and expect it at my door within minutes and I moved down here, and you have to drive everywhere to get whatever on your to do list," said Leess.

But that will soon change. She's exploring a new app called Klink.  You order and alcohol is delivered to your doorstep in under an hour.

"There would definitely be incentive if I needed something and didn't want to run out or leave the party or that sort of thing, I'd take advantage of an app like that," she said.

The creators are four guys from Boca Raton.

"When we first launched we were really just scratching our own itch. This is a service that we really wanted to use for ourselves and that's why we built it and since then, it's absolutely taken off," said Craig Bolz.

Serving Washington D.C., Dallas and Miami. They'll be pouring into Palm Beach County soon. Developers said this will curb drunk driving.

"Our drivers verify and check the customers ID every time when they make the delivery and we also have patented pending age verification technology so we actually verify that the customers ID is real, that it's connected to their identity and there are no fake ID's being used," said Jeff Nadel.

But some experts question the safety.

"It needs a little bit more homework done on it," said Jeff Kadel, with the Palm Beach County Awareness Coalition.

Kadel said he doesn't know how the app will prevent drunk driving, underage drinking or cutting the person off who ordered the liquor if they're intoxicated.

"When you have a situation where there's ease of access to a substance, that's when you see the most use and abuse."

There is a service charge of $3.87 for delivery. Developers said the app will be ready to use in Palm Beach County within the next several months.
