To meet growing demand in Miami ahead of the peak holiday season, the Farmstead online grocer has extended its delivery hours, adding dozens of new delivery slots up to 8 p.m. on weekdays. The company’s weekly order volume in the Miami area has doubled over the past month.
Farmstead, which serves several metropolitan areas in the United States, launched in Miami in June. In addition to expanding its hours of operation, the company recently recruited dozens of new employees and added other local grocery brands, including McArthur Milk and Dairy, Yo Mama’s Pasta Sauce, Zephyrill’s Water, Mr Tango Sausages, Natalie’s Orchard Island Juice and Made CafÃ©. The company now also sources local seafood while actively seeking to add more local brands.
The e-grocery store also offers recognized national brands and fresh local products. Customers can opt for same day delivery for daily orders, or sign up for free delivery once a week. All Closed deliveries are grouped together with other orders in the same district, in order to reduce carbon emissions. The company relies on proprietary artificial intelligence technology and a dark store model to maximize efficiency and reduce costs.
âMiami gave us a warm welcome and has become one of our fastest growing cities,â said Sara custer, operations manager at Burlingame, Calif., Farmstead, who plans to expand nationwide to a predominantly suburban mid-range audience. âThe holidays tend to generate a lot of new delivery requests, and Miami is no exception. We distinguish ourselves by our ability to deliver local and national brands, same day orders, free once a week delivery, sustainable delivery routes and great prices. We’re excited to expand our footprint here in Miami and make fresh, local food available to everyone. ”
Last month, Farmstead was among several companies that received the keys to the city from Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava in recognition of the new jobs it has created in the area. The company currently offers new Miami customers $ 30 off their first order, plus a free gift.
