Yummy.com, a leading multi-channel grocery retailer, opened a new store in Century City, California, this week, marking the company’s sixth location in the Los Angeles area. With the addition of the Century City location, Yummy.com’s delivery area extends from the Pacific Ocean to Koreatown and from the 10 Freeway to Beverly Hills.
“Our sixth location is focused on innovative systems for the modern customer’s needs and preferences,” said Barnaby Montgomery, co-founder and CEO of Yummy.com. “In addition to a seamless, frictionless shopping experience powered by our proprietary shopping systems, we offer the convenience of an approachable neighborhood market and the ability to receive delivery of your online grocery order in about 30 minutes.”
In addition to creating more than 45 new jobs, the new store features Stumptown cold brew coffee and Better Booch Kombucha on draft, a dining patio and iPad self-service stations for deli and prepared food orders. In the coming months, the store also will deploy the company’s proprietary, patent-pending, mobile self-checkout system called iCheckout, which allows customers to purchase and checkout products by scanning or taking a photo of them using their iPhone before they leave the store.
Located at 9769 W. Pico Boulevard, the new location serves the areas of Westwood, Century City, West Los Angeles, Cheviot Hills, Palms, Rancho Park and portions of Beverly Hills. Featuring a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh meat, packaged, gourmet and organic groceries, Yummy.com’s new location also offers delivery in about 30 minutes, giving customers the ability to receive delivery of their online order in less time than a trip to the store, the company says. Other Yummy.com locations include Hollywood, Mid-City (Los Angeles), Santa Monica, Silver Lake and Playa Vista.
Additionally, the company has announced back-to-back years of 20 percent sales growth and now completes nearly 30,000 orders per month. Yummy.com also recently rolled out a new website featuring a responsive design optimized for mobile users that enables customers to place an order in about seven minutes.
