Kozmo.com Heads to Hollywood

Kozmo.com's home delivery service headed for the sun Tuesday with the rollout of operations in Southern California.

The popular Web-based delivery service is now available to customers in the San Fernando Valley, West Los Angeles, Hollywood and Pasadena, with plans to roll out into South Bay soon. Regional businesses California Pizza Kitchen and Mani's Bakery Cafe have partnered with the company to provide their products, in addition to the food, health and beauty products, and video rentals that have been Kozmo's staples.

Kozmo.com, which started in New York, has already expanded to Boston, Washington, D.C., San Francisco and Seattle with a wide selection of entertainment and convenience products.

Tuesday's launch in Los Angeles is a perfect fit with kozmo.com's expansion strategy, said Joseph Park, kozmo.com co-founder and chief executive officer.

"As the entertainment capital of the world, Los Angeles was a natural choice as the next step in our development," said Park. "In a city where residents spend so much of their time working and commuting, kozmo.com provides a lifestyle solution for time-pressed customers. We deliver competitively-priced food, entertainment and convenience items directly to the home or office in rapid speed."
