In honor of National Ice Cream Day this Sunday, Postmates wants to help you stay cool by delivering ice cream to you in less than hour.
Postmates sees it as a nod to the early success of the now defunct Kozmo same-day delivery service. Kozmo started in Manhattan and let you order a pint of ice cream from Ben & Jerry's online. It ended up becoming one of the largest distributors of Ben & Jerry ice cream.
Now, Postmates is paying somewhat of a tribute to late Kozmo, CEO Bastian Lehmann tells Business Insider.
Though, it's worth noting that on-demand car service startup Uber tested a similar service last year. For one day across eight cities, you could hail a nearby ice cream truck to your location.
Postmates launched in New York at the end of May to deliver anything to you in your city in less than an hour. Before, it was only available in San Francisco and Seattle.
