Foxtrot, a hybrid corner store, cafe and delivery market, is expanding its outreach with a new delivery service called Foxtrot Anywhere.
With just 13 locations in Chicago, Dallas and Washington, D.C.—but plans to add an additional 50 new stores within the next two years—the new delivery service will allow shoppers nationwide to experience the local assortment, unique gifts and chef-made eats that have put Chicago-based Foxtrot on the map.
Currently available through Foxtrot Anywhere are gift boxes featuring the retailer’s top-selling treats and products, as well as treats and gifts sold individually. Shoppable categories include Trending Now, rotating gift bundles that highlight what’s trending, with an emphasis on small makers, bold flavors and forward-thinking brands; Curated Gift Boxes, hand-selected assortments of small business favorites and trending must-haves to celebrate occasions such as birthdays, house-warmings and more; and Made by Foxtrot, gift bundles that feature Foxtrot’s own collection of chef-prepared foods, including gummies, homemade salty chips and desserts.
The launch of Foxtrot Anywhere is being kicked off in partnership with Nilou Motamed, a TV personality and former editor-in-chief of Food & Wine, who curated her favorite culinary items into three gift boxes: Nilou’s Fave Female Maker Box, Nilou’s Must Haves and Nilou’s Gifts for the Ultimate Host. Motamed is donating 10% of the proceeds from each gift box sold to World Central Kitchen, a not-for-profit devoted to providing meals in the wake of natural disasters.
Foxtrot debuted in D.C. earlier this year with two stores and in the next two years, plans to enter new markets that include New York City; Austin and Houston, Texas; Boston; Miami, Fla.; and Los Angeles. Stores are slated to open later this year in Chicago's Gold Coast, D.C.’s Dupont Circle and Old Town Alexandria in Virginia.
