It’s a bird. It’s a plane. Nope, it’s the Yoshi truck—and it’s delivering gas and more to vehicles all over Birmingham. But what really goes on during a Yoshi delivery? Bham Now took a behind the scenes look at Birmingham’s newest, subscription-based gas delivery service. Sign up now and you will also get a free one month trial membership!
Behind the Yoshi Truck
Yoshi first put down treads in Birmingham this past January for the company’s first city launch of 2019. Not to brag (okay, maybe a little), but we were also the first city in Alabama to get Yoshi.
Since then, you may have caught a glimpse of those happy blue Yoshi trucks driving past. But you have to wonder—who is driving these trucks and what exactly are they doing? Let me fill you in.
Behind the wheel of each Yoshi truck is a trained field tech. Each day, through an easy-to-use app, field techs communicate with Yoshi members to deliver gas and maintenance services to directly to their vehicles. Sounds kind of like a modern day milkman, doesn’t it?
Fun fact: Each Yoshi truck has a unique name and story behind it. The trucks are a core part of what makes Yoshi possible. Why wouldn’t they treat them like the true employees they are? Be on the lookout for “Kathryn”, “Jackson”, and others.
Gas Fill Ups, Wherever You Are Parked
If you’re like many in Birmingham, life is non-stop go, go, go. Unfortunately, this leaves little extra time for important tasks like gas fill ups. But, you can’t live a go-go-go lifestyle without gas to get you where you need to go. What to do? Say goodbye to those inconvenient stops at the pump with Yoshi’s gas delivery service.
Yoshi uses Top Tier Exxon Mobil Synergy Fuel with gas prices that match the lowest gas price within a two mile radius of where you get serviced. This means you get the highest quality gas, but also the lowest price. Win-win.
Here’s how it works:
- Sign-up: Go to StartYoshi.com/Redeem and use promo code BHAMNOW for a $10 credit off your first fill-up. Use the link texted to your phone to download the Yoshi app and sign-up.
- Schedule: Select a weekday and a convenient time block between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. for Yoshi to come by and take care of your vehicle.
- Share: Give (and get!) 99 cent per gallon fill-ups when you refer friends and family through the Yoshi app using your unique promo code.
It’s that easy. The best part—you don’t even have to be there. Just give the deets of your car’s location and Yoshi’s Birmingham field techs. So while your vehicle is being serviced by Yoshi’s Birmingham field techs, you can focus on more important things. Pretty handy, right?
