About Gopher

Need something right now, but can’t run out to get it? Need help tackling a to-do list? Gopher has you covered.

Gopher was founded by 2 friends, John Newbury and Tom Livolsi, on a golf course in Raleigh, NC. With no caddie, no cart, out of water, and as far from the club house as could be, it provoked the thought… “what if there was an app, where we could get anything we wanted, from wherever we wanted, RIGHT NOW?” (…already knowing in the back of their minds, the current limitations and outrageous costs associated with current food/alcohol/tobacco on-demand delivery options). The very next day Gopher was born!

The founders then went to work on, among other things, building the business plan, in depth research of the on-demand marketplace, conducting hundreds of interviews, created the wireframes for development and assembling a team to bring Gopher to market.

After compiling over a years worth of data and feedback on iOS, Gopher launched its website and added Android to the platform in June of 2020. Gopher has since organically gained over 13,000 users in all 50 states. Fulfilling requests for food, grocery and age-restricted delivery, home services, small to medium sized moves, junk removal, courier, landscaping, errands, furniture assembly, ride-sharing, tasks and so much more!

Our vision is to become the ultimate community marketplace for services. Empowering our users to pay the price they think is fair, for the local services they need, without the interference of an expensive platform or subscription agreement.

Our mission is where our community serves your community, with literally any service you need.

We hope to provide an organized and structured marketplace, without cost, in which allows communities to leverage their neighbors and local business for help, without big companies getting in the way, costing everybody a lot of money.

Lastly, Gopher will always continue listening to our users as we evolve. We’ll host the marketplace, while your continued feedback builds it.
