Grand Rapids, Michigan-based SpartanNash has announced a new partnership with Uber Technologies to offer on-demand and scheduled grocery delivery to shoppers across the Midwest.
“SpartanNash’s focus on customer-centric innovation is core to our next stage of growth,” said Masiar Tayebi, EVP and chief strategy and information officer. “Partnering with Uber is an important marker of this, meeting our shoppers wherever they are – in stores or online. We are proud to expand our reach across the Uber and Uber Eats platform to new customers who are hungry for convenience delivered to their doorstep.”
Nearly 100 SpartanNash locations, including Family Fare, Martin’s Super Markets and D&W Fresh Market storefronts, will be available to shop through Uber and Uber Eats. The two companies are extending this service to SpartanNash’s network of 2,100 independent grocery retail customers.
“We’re thrilled to be joining forces with the team at SpartanNash to bring its corporately-owned banners onto the Uber Eats app, helping to expand their digital strategies and customer reach through technology,” said Christian Freese, Uber’s head of grocery and new verticals. “And we’re also incredibly excited that this partnership expands the reach of grocery delivery from Uber Eats to cities and towns across the north Midwest for the first time, thanks to these beloved grocery brands.”
SpartanNash CEO Tony Sarsam said, “SpartanNash’s mission is to deliver the ingredients for a better life, and our partnership with Uber enables us to expand our reach within the communities we serve. We will continue to pursue strategic relationships and investments making the grocery shopping experience more convenient, enjoyable and affordable for the people we serve.”
