About Accio

Accio is a premium on-demand delivery service that was built over two days in Victoria in March 2015 by Mike Rowe and Carla Smart. Originally built as a service that would “bring you anything you want from anywhere you want” with a simple text message we have since grown to a full ecommerce experience with native mobile apps, GPS delivery tracking, and an incredible team of dispatchers, drivers, programmers, and business personnel. Most of Accio’s deliveries are from the best restaurants in the city including, but not limited to, Foo, Roast, Cactus Club, Be Love, and Pizzeria Prima Strada. Accio is now fulfilling hundreds of orders a week and growing.

About Mike
