Delivery services are springing up from coast to coast, bringing everything from marijuana to groceries to personal trainers to your door—all before you've finished the next episode of your show.

Coupled with advances in technology that make delivery services faster and more efficient, convenience is a major factor in the growing market. Consumers are buying not just a meal kit, but potentially a little more time in their day, a little more privacy, or in the case of subscription boxes, simply a little more whimsy.
