Uber’s grocery delivery marketplace, powered by Cornershop, is expanding grocery delivery service with its new partnership with Southeastern Grocers (SEG), parent company of Fresco y Más and Winn-Dixie stores. This marks Uber’s first major grocery retailer partnership in Florida.
Uber connects users with on-demand grocery delivery, where users can browse and buy products from local supermarkets, independent grocers and specialty food stores.
The statewide collaboration brings Fresco y Más and Winn-Dixie groceries directly from the store to customers’ doorsteps with on-demand and scheduled delivery. Through this partnership with SEG in Miami, Orlando, Tampa and Jacksonville, Uber now offers a wide selection for customers to choose from, bringing them closer to the things they need, when they need them most.
“Uber believes that people should be able to get to the places they need to go, grab food from their favorite local restaurants and get daily essentials with the tap of a button,” said Raj Beri, Uber’s global head of grocery. “Grocery delivery is a priority we’re pursuing at Uber-speed across the country, and in partnership with SEG, Floridians can now turn to the Uber app to get the things they need from the supermarkets they know and love.”
“Our customers and communities count on us to adapt quickly to their shifting needs, and right now they need easy and safe access to their groceries more than ever before,” said Adam Kirk, SVP of marketing for SEG. “Our home state of Florida has been on the front lines of the pandemic – we’re eager to roll out a cutting-edge service to support them both for today and into the future.”
