JoyRun– earn rewards & discounts when you enjoy a bite with friends, coworkers, and neighbors.
JoyRun is for your lunch & coffee break, convenience store runs, study sessions, or late-night munchies. It’s the most friendly way to get the things you need.
Use JoyRun to get the things you need with people near you. When you’re heading out, start a Run and earn group rewards & discounts when you pick up for friends & coworkers on your way. When you’re staying in, order on Runs coming to you. The ‘Runner’ will pick up and drop off your order! You’re welcome to chip in towards their order, or not. It’s up to you!
You get to Run and order on JoyRun, whichever fits you best that day.
Coffee, lunch, and boba Runs are already happening everyday. However, taking orders “I’ll have a small medium roast with steamed soy and 2 stevia” and sending Venmo requests afterwards is a big pain. JoyRun handles placing orders and payment directly, so all you need to do is show up (skip the line), grab your orders, and enjoy!
It’s often difficult to go out and get what you need. Delivery is expensive, and there are always worries about food quality. With JoyRun, you get the things you need from people you know without paying high delivery fees.
How it works: Download the JoyRun app to join your community. The next time you’re going out, start your group Run to start earning rewards. Invite friends & coworkers to join the Run, and we handle the rest. Or, browse the ‘Runs coming to you now’ section to see available restaurants and stores.

Don’t bother. Stay away.
I worked for Joyrun and quit after a week. It was hard to try to help promote a company I so did not believe in. It is SO not worth it to be a runner. The company makes you charge only $2 per run, and they also don’t want you to be “overwhelmed” so you make max $6-10 per run that takes 30-45min just to drop the food off at all these different locations regardless how far they are from each other. They don’t let you choose to drop off food in one area. It is just kind of ridiculous if you don’t drive a Prius. Not worth it considering gas and time and carrying all these bags of foods/drinks.
The company is also extremely disorganized behind the scenes. They put no thought into the people they bring on to the team, and the higher ups don’t see this. I can’t believe they chose some of the people they did to put in charge.
I have also ordered from Joyrun and the food takes 2 hours to come and you have no control over what a stranger is doing to your food before you receive it. I ordered fries once and literally had 3 French fries. Another time there was a bite in my sandwich.
The company needs to figure out a way to reward the runners so that it is worth it to run and so they have more of an incentive to do it in a timely, respectful manner.
Very convenient, could use improvement
I do love this app; it is very convenient for a freshman in college who isn't allowed to have a car on campus.
I do think the app should be more improved in a way where it shows you an ETA to your door, not just an ETA to the restaurant itself. It’s bit annoying having to guess when they will arrive or having to ask them to text you when they’ll get here every single time.
I do also think that the runners should have a sticker on their car of some sort showing that they are a runner, it’s annoying having to guess what car they are in a parking lot. Or maybe in the app having it show what kind of car they will be driving, that way you know what to look for; kind of like what Uber does.
I still plan on using this app a lot (maybe too much), I just think it could use a few improvements!
Terrible UI and customer service
Great idea but terrible execution. Every time I refer my coworkers to use the app I have to PHYSICALLY show them how it works or else no one gets it. There’s two options to order food one is delivery and one is meetup at some location. The design looks the same for both and I was misled into ordering from people’s office meetups multiple times. There’s nowhere on the screen that tells you if you’re looking at a meetup or delivery. They send you notifications to join people’s OFFICE runs for some reason and ask for your delivery address when they are NOT DELIVERING. This confusion happened to me and coworkers many times and when I request for a refund the customer support Marco refuse to provide a refund and blamed the user for being confused by the app. Why would I purposely pay for something and not get it? I would give it more chance to improve the design and keep using it but it’s a terrible business if they blame the customer. Delete it and don’t waste your time and money.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
