PICKUP Instant Delivery Closes Significant Investment by Former Terminix Executive

Retail last mile delivery service continues aggressive growth and expansion.

DALLAS (February 27, 2017) — PICKUP®, the instant last mile delivery service featuring Good Guys and their trucks, has received a significant investment from former president Albert Cantu of pest control company Terminix.

Cantu brings 30 years of experience in the pest control business, and in 2009, he acquired Express Pest Control in Dallas. He has since acquired a number of other pest control businesses including Technical Pest Services in Houston in 2014. Cantu has built his business by providing exceptional service to his customers, and strives to provide the best possible experience in the Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston markets.

Of his investment in PICKUP, Cantu said, “I’m very excited to be a part of PICKUP’s expansion and to help support their work. The service is truly redefining the home delivery market and helping traditional retailers solve their last mile logistic challenges.”

“Adding Albert’s expertise to our team provides strategic intelligence that informs expansion and growth,” commented Brenda Stoner, CEO, PICKUP. “He also understands the extreme importance of trust in a service business that includes crossing the threshold.”

PICKUP is engaged with major retailers to provide instant delivery of big & heavy items, such as furniture, appliances, TVs and more.  Consumers are demanding more convenient options for delivery which is driving significant company growth.
