James Walker, who helped lead the rollout of ghost kitchens for hot-dog specialist Nathan's Famous, will oversee day-to-day operations for Buyk as the company's co-founders shift their focus to fundraising.

After piloting delivery through DoorDash at approximately 600 locations this summer, Dollar General now is offering the service at more than 9,000 stores across the country.

The Istanbul-based ultrafast grocery delivery service, now operating in nine countries, plans to expand to New York and Boston by year's end.

"Online grocery shouldn’t be a luxury," Instacart COO Asha Sharma says in introducing new offerings meant to help users save, including a Deals Tab that lets users find coupons from their favorite retailers and brands more easily.

"Key performance indicators (KPIs) for monthly active users, order frequency, and average order value are rebalancing from the record highs of 2020," Brick Meets Click partner David Bishop says.

"We see huge potential for future growth in the ultrafast sector," Buyk co-founder Slava Bocharov says as the dark-store microgrocer expands in New York City.

Consumers' appetite for "quick commerce"—whether that's delivery in an hour or in 15 minutes—is strong, Coresight Research finds, but a rapidly rising number of players in the fast-delivery space means consolidation is inevitable.

The online grocer is enhancing its Grocery OS stack to help food retailers launch dark-store order fulfillment in two weeks via warehouse space sourced from national real-estate players and last-mile delivery service from national providers.
