If you don't have the time or energy to go grocery shopping for yourself, you're not alone.

A grocery delivery start up called Burpy expanded to the Houston area in early December.

Burpy was started by a group of students at the University of Texas in Austin. Customers go online, choose between 50,000 products and order for same-day delivery.

Burpy doesn't have a warehouse or distribution center. Rather, the company hires drivers to shop and deliver locally bought groceries. There is no delivery fee, but customers pay 5 to 20 percent more per item.

The company is currently operating in Austin, San Antonio, and Houston.
