Countless times I’ve loaded the kids into the car for a quick grocery store run only to remember, last minute, that one of them had soccer practice, or a doctor’s appointment, or a playdate. The grocery store would have to wait!
In fact, for that exact reason, my family signed up for Green Bean Delivery, a great food delivery service to bring fresh produce and organic meats and dairy products; however, this delivery occurs once per week and isn’t all that helpful for immediate needs, staples, milk products, or prepackaged snacks.
Well, John Stamates, resident of Dayton KY, believes he has the perfect solution for exactly this problem: Milk Run LLC.
Stamates, founder of Milk Run LLC, began the business at the end of 2014 and has been operating it in a closed test period for the past nine months in both Kentucky and Ohio. The service is a grocery delivery service but one that operates similar to Uber. Rather than paying a professional delivery service or ordering from the store, Milk Run LLC connects you with a neighbor who is signed up on the service and the neighbor does your shopping for you, within as little as an hour, and delivers it to your door.
Stamates has a BS in Manufacturing Engineering and Computer Science and Physics minors from Miami University and has spent much of his career working for Fortune 500 companies. A father of three, he founded and began the company as a unique way to solve a common household problem. From the limited test period, it appears to be working. A few testimonials from his website:

Shelly B – “Being a Runner for Milk Run delivery is easy and a great way to earn extra fuel points!"
