Wunwun Is About to Sell, But Not Necessarily to Alfred

Techcrunch reported earlier today that delivery startup Wunwun is about to be sold to Alfred, a home services startup that brings caretakers into your life as a subscription service.

But numerous sources close to the matter have told the Observer that Wunwun hasn’t actually handed over their house keys to any buyer. Numerous companies that have been interested in logistics—and god, how many there are these days—have brought offers to the table.

Alfred co-founder and CEO Marcela Sapone gave Techcrunch this statement:

We’re really excited to learn from the experience of the first on-demand company and an early pioneer in the New York tech scene. We’re trying to control the full stack, the entire experience from order to beyond delivery, and this asset purchase helps us do that.

Wunwun has been slowly shuttering for weeks—this reporter has been hearing for some time that even Wunwun’s top users have gone almost a month without having a single thing delivered.
