H-E-B To Offer Grocery Delivery To Texans With Shipt


Last updated on June 13th, 2024 at 11:52 am

H-E-B and Shipt, an app-based grocery delivery service that currently serves 25 major metropolitan areas in the U.S., have formed a partnership designed to bring grocery delivery to customers in Texas. The partnership will launch in San Antonio, where H-E-B is headquartered, on May 25, with plans to expand to Houston, Austin, Dallas and more markets this year.

In addition to providing grocery delivery from H-E-B stores 24 hours per day, seven days per week, Shipt also will partner with Central Market to provide on-demand grocery delivery. Central Market is owned by H-E-B. Through the partnership, H-E-B and Central Market customers will be able to select and purchase their groceries through Shipt’s mobile app and schedule delivery as soon as one hour after placing their orders. Shipt’s shoppers will fulfill customers’ orders and deliver them.

“Over the past year, Shipt has rapidly introduced grocery delivery to cities across the country. We are one of the fastest-growing on-demand services in the United States, and H-E-B is the type of grocer with whom we seek to partner due to their commitment to quality food, excellent customer service and dedication to their local communities,” said Bill Smith, founder and CEO of Shipt. “Through our partnership with H-E-B, we will make life easier for busy individuals and families, while creating jobs across Texas. We care deeply about serving H-E-B customers and the communities in which we operate, and look forward to providing our members with more time to focus on the things they care about most.”

Leading up to the launch, Shipt will build a network of more than 300 shoppers and says it will identify opportunities to support community organizations throughout San Antonio.

“H-E-B has provided high-quality groceries to Texans for more than 110 years. We are connected to our customers throughout all of our markets, and always are looking for new ways to make the grocery shopping experience more convenient,” said Greg Souquette, SVP and GM of San Antonio operations at H-E-B. “Shipt shares this commitment, as well as our belief in community development and engagement, which is why we are thrilled to announce this new partnership.”

Customers who sign up for an annual membership prior to the May 25 launch will receive $50 in grocery credit.
