DoorDash and Instacart to Deliver Booze
Just in time for the holidays, DoorDash has become the first third party delivery service licensed to bring booze to your door. After nearly a year since the special New Jersey rule for bars, restaurants, and liquor stores to allow the delivery of alcohol by third party delivery services were put in place, Door Dash is the first company to be in compliance and offer the service. DoorDash, Uber Eats, and Instacart have been given the go ahead, but there are a few parameters to follow under the new rule from the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control. In order to make the delivery of alcohol, the delivery services must contract a third-party delivery permit, costing them $2,000. They also must conduct a background check on the drivers, train them on the laws,  as well as implement measures to prevent deliveries to minors while maintaining accurate records.
