FreshDirect Announces Expansion And New Same Day Delivery Service

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

FreshDirect, the Northeast’s leading online fresh food grocer, today announced its first round of expansion since moving to its new headquarters, FreshDirect Campus, last year. The Company is extending its service into more parts of Connecticut and expanding its reach in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area, with further geographic expansion planned for late 2019 and early 2020.

Additionally, FreshDirect is now offering a same day delivery service enabling customers to place a FreshDirect order before 10am and receive it later that evening. Same day service makes available the full breadth of FreshDirect’s assortment of the highest quality fresh food and all grocery needs, and will be available throughout Manhattan by March 11, with Brooklyn and Westchester County coming soon.

“Last year was a transition year for FreshDirect with the opening of our state-of-the-art new facility, but we’re excited to announce that the Company is returning to growth and expansion in 2019 and beyond,” said David McInerney, CEO of FreshDirect. “Now that we have settled into our new home our service and selection are better than anyone else in the industry. FreshDirect Campus was built to provide the best overall customer experience while allowing us to expand to new markets and offer innovations like same day delivery.”

FreshDirect Campus, situated in the South Bronx, re-imagines farm-to-fork food distribution and manufacturing, making it even easier for customers to get access to higher-quality, fresher food. The new facility enables the Company to add thousands of new products and accelerate its expansion into new geographies with its FreshDirect, FoodKick, and FreshDirect At The Office brands.

McInerney added: “We want customers to know that we’re adding great new products every week, that we’re putting more new trucks on the road to make sure they get their deliveries when they want them and on time, and that we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee on every order – if something isn’t to your liking just let us know and we’ll fix it immediately.”
