    Alfreds can even anticipate when your milk carton will be empty and replace it without even asking - all while you are at work. Alfred makes money by clustering at least three brief stops per building and charging for laundry and cleaning.

    Alfred plans to expand to at least 10 US cities by 2017. The service is available to New Yorkers at USD 99 per month.
