Harris Teeter has expanded its grocery delivery across metro Washington, D.C., with an emphasis on never breaking the cold chain.

Groceries are handled by company employees to maintain their temperature throughout the delivery process. They are loaded onto a Harris Teeter refrigerated delivery truck, with frozen items packed in dry ice until they reach the customer.

“Our focus on never breaking the cold chain ensures delivery matches the experience of shopping in person,” said Bill Rhyne, senior director of operations support. 

“With our state-of-the-art delivery trucks, every item remains at the proper temperature throughout the delivery; your ice cream always arrives frozen.”

Customers can sign up for a free trial of HT Plus membership, giving them 30 days of free delivery, double the amount of Harris Teeter fuel points and exclusive savings.
