Home delivery is still a popular option for many convenience store customers. Many chains offer this service but others offer a more local experience. For example, some retailers have been offering home delivery services for years. The lockdown has made it easier for smaller businesses to keep up with customer demand and offer more flexibility for delivery slots.
Uber Eats Convenience Store Delivery
A new partnership between Uber and convenience store delivery service Lula will make convenience store delivery more convenient. Lula offers inventory management and aggregation software that c-stores can use to sync their inventory and make it available to customers on Uber Eats. This partnership will allow smaller convenience stores to offer their food through the Uber Eats marketplace.
Initially, the new partnership with bp will offer convenience store delivery in Australia, but it will soon expand to the United States and UK. Ultimately, the partnership is expected to see 3,000 convenience stores available on the Uber Eats app by 2025. While bp has partnered with Uber before, this deal with convenience stores marks a major step forward for the aggregator.
To make restaurant delivery more convenient and profitable, Uber Eats has partnered with convenience stores like Costco and Walgreens to add more items. This will make better use of drivers’ time and attract more customers.
DoorDash Convenience Store Delivery
DoorDash is expanding its food delivery service beyond restaurants and cafes, and now partnering with convenience stores and grocers. In April, the app added convenience store delivery, which enables customers to place an order for packaged goods from a convenience store and have it delivered the same day. The company works with e-commerce platforms like Rosie and Mercato, as well as independent grocery retailers to provide convenience store delivery services.
DoorDash now provides delivery services from over 1,800 convenience stores across the United States. It also has a no-contact drop-off option, which enables consumers to order and pick up food from convenience stores without leaving their homes. The company began testing this feature last year, but the recent outbreak of the coronavirus forced the company to speed up its launch.
The service also has partnerships with local restaurants, so it’s possible to order takeout without ever leaving your home. DashMart offers grocery and convenience items that can be delivered within thirty minutes. It also offers selections from local businesses, including the Cheesecake Factory. The company plans to expand its service to new cities in the next few months.
Grubhub Convenience Store Delivery
If you’ve been looking for a way to order food from your favorite convenience store, try Grubhub. It has partnered with 7-Eleven and now will deliver your order in about 15 minutes. This partnership is the first step in adding more convenience store items to the service. The application is available in New York City.
The partnership also expands Grubhub’s delivery service beyond the convenience store. It will now deliver groceries and other convenience store items to customers in the same way as the popular grocery delivery service Buyk. The new partnership will allow customers to choose from 2,000 grocery items, including many private label items. Both companies will fulfill and deliver orders, and more than thirty locations will participate in the initial launch. But competition for Grubhub is fierce.
The company’s new partnership with a national chain of c-stores could help it increase its market share. Consumers who order from convenience stores tend to order more from restaurants, so Grubhub should benefit from a boost in orders from its restaurant partners.
Waitr Convenience Store Delivery
The on-demand food delivery service Waitr is now expanding into new verticals and shifting its business model. In an announcement, the company says it will partner with convenience stores like 7-Eleven to deliver food and other items to customers in the future. As part of the partnership, the company is also rebranding itself as ASAP. The service will offer same-day and next-day delivery of food items from more than 700 7-Eleven locations.
Waitr is a convenience-store delivery service that is growing rapidly. It is available nationwide and offers services for many types of food. Customers can search for local restaurants and add items to their orders. They can also add friends to group orders and track the progress of orders. The service even includes tip adjustments, so customers can control the amount they tip their waiter.
The service has partnered with two other companies to expand its delivery services. It has partnered with ASAP and Eau Claire, Wis.-based Elite Extra to provide delivery for Waitr customers in 80 different industries. Additionally, the service has partnered with Burq to offer food delivery services at convenience stores and ethnic grocery stores.
