A Burger King franchise location in Glendale is piloting a new delivery program for the fast-food brand. Franchise owner Bob Stevens, who owns eight Burger King locations, began taking delivery orders at his store on North Central Avenue on April 9. Stevens' location is the first in California to deliver.

I used the Bags VIP delivery service to pick up my checked luggage at the airport on a recent trip to New York. Although the clerk at JetBlue said he knew nothing about how to affix the green Bags VIP sticker, his supervisor did. The scene in New York City is such that my bag arrived at my hotel before I did. I wish it picked up luggage at home and not just at airports, but the service is reasonable, friendly and efficient. One bag, $29.95; two bags, $39.95; three-eight bags, $49.95.
