Grand Rapids, Michigan-based SpartanNash has entered into a partnership with DoorDash to expand the company’s grocery services and solutions across both digital and physical platforms through various different initiatives.
DoorDash is partnering with SpartanNash to offer on-demand grocery delivery from more than 100 SpartanNash-owned stores, including Family Fare and Martin’s Super Markets. The partnership will also include the opportunity for SpartanNash’s network of 2,100 independent retail customers to leverage the DoorDash marketplace app and website, as well as DoorDash Drive to address their local commerce needs and offer on-demand grocery delivery to consumers in their communities.
“Customer-centric innovation is a key priority to drive growth at SpartanNash, and joining forces with DoorDash will enable us to expand our customer base and capture more of the grocery retail market by rapidly scaling our digital offering with a leading partner,” said Tony Sarsam, SpartanNash president and CEO.
“We know our customers’ grocery needs well and have the supply chain and retail footprint to provide strategic service based on their preferences. This partnership with DoorDash complements our collective strengths and will drive growth across the food ecosystem – from food distribution to e-commerce – to deliver the ingredients for a better life.”
As part of the omni-channel partnership, SpartanNash will also serve as a distributor of pantry and household items to DoorDash DashMart locations beginning in New York City with plans to add locations in the future.
“We are excited to partner with SpartanNash to bring innovative ecommerce solutions to their beloved grocery banners across the Midwest, independent grocers and retailers so that they can build their omni-channel presence and provide consumers with access to convenient, on-demand grocery delivery,” said Tony Xu, DoorDash CEO and co-founder. “We are proud to work together to empower independent grocers with the tools and resources needed to grow their businesses and expand their digital footprints.”
