SpartanNash Partners With DoorDash for Speedy Delivery

More than 100 SpartanNash-owned stores and 2,100 independent grocers served by the company's wholesale business will be able to access on-demand grocery delivery through DoorDash.

With inflation top of mind for consumers, delivery order volumes shrank during the month, and even pickup—online grocery's powerhouse—saw declines.

Previously, customers were redirected outside the app. “By adding additional e-commerce options … we are creating a more streamlined customer experience,” said Chace MacMullan of Schnucks.

The expanded partnership between the two companies brings 800 new locations to the app, including to consumers in Connecticut, Indiana, New Hampshire, Utah, Vermont and Rhode Island for the first time.

Lakeland, Fla.-based Publix is the first grocer to collaborate with Instacart on its new fulfillment model, bringing added convenience to its customers in Miami's Brickell, Coral Gables and Wynwood neighborhoods.

With convenience-store giant Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. as a lead investor, Food Rocket aims to grow its team “by recruiting people from giant companies such as GoPuff and DoorDash.”

Grubhub's order volumes and transaction values were down 5% year over year in the first quarter, and an activist investor has been urging the business' sale to a major online grocery player.

The grocer is now hiring more than 200 associates as it prepares to bring Kroger Delivery to the South Florida market this summer.

The company said it will roll out the payment capability for customers in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Kentucky in the coming weeks.
