How is it possible that no one had thought to do this...create

The mastermind is a 24-year-old guy from South Carolina who now lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

He was hungry one night and could not remember the name of that corner store that delivered or find the phone number anywhere.

Now you can go to the website and find phone numbers and credit card minimums.

It's easy. You click on where you live, but if that's in TriBeCa, Brooklyn, the Bronx or Queens, hold the line, your lists have yet to be delivered, but they are on the way.

The site just launched a week ago.

David Hawkins, the website's founder is on vacation.

He sent Eyewitness News a picture of himself on the beach.

"It's a great idea for the disabled or senior citizens, a great idea," one person said.

Then there's Prakash, who's on

He's owned the bodega at the corner of 1st Avenue and 4th Street for a decade.

"I'm happy and really mad about it," Prakash Shath said.

"Why because you didn't think of it?" asked Eyewitness News.

"Exactly," Shath said.

Prakash says New Yorkers are ordering more and more.

He says he delivers ten times what they did five years ago.

"This is like a mini super market. We have everything, beer, deli," Shath said.

Also, it's good to tip the people who deliver the food and items to your door.
