Need some eggs, milk, pots and pans or even a cell phone charger? There's an app for that. (WPVI)

During the blizzard of 2016 stores may not have been open, but goPuff - an on demand delivery app - was rolling.

It's kind of like a convenience store - plus much more - on wheels. And it's the brainchild of two local entrepreneurs, who launched their business while they were only sophomores at Drexel University.

Now just 22 years old, Yakir Gola and Rafael Ilishayev are still roommates, best friends and business partners who are capitalizing on our "on demand society."

The pair have curated the 3,000 most popular items that their fleet of independent drivers can grab and deliver to your door in about 20 minutes.

They have about 40 employees and have now expanded to six cities with more to come, including Seattle next week.

And they've even launched goBeer, which will deliver you brews of 12 packs or more right to your doorstep.

Watch the video above to learn more about goPuff.
