Black and Mobile, 3 years after launch, continues to grow

PHILADELPHIA -- August is Black Business Month. All month long, we are celebrating local businesses that are making an impact in the community. Meet the twin brothers behind the growing Black and Mobile delivery service in Philadelphia.

"We support Black people, the Black business, the Black community, the dollar circulation," David Cabello said. "All of that."

In today's ever-growing food delivery industry, being mobile is important. But for twins David and Aaron Cabello being Black is essential. The 27-year-olds are behind the latest food delivery app Black and Mobile. They only deliver from Black-owned restaurants.

"We're in five markets. We're trying to get to about eight to 10 markets by the end of the year hopefully," Aaron said.

"No, the end of next year," David said. "Two more markets this year and next year."

The brothers launched the service in 2019.

David worked in food delivery prior to founding Black and Mobile, but he says he began to notice a trend.

"The biggest thing was, how come I'm not picking up from any Black-owned restaurants? We rarely picked up from Black restaurants," David said.

"If we don't create the alternative option, they're going to settle for what they got," Aaron said.
