FreshDirect Announces Manhattan Launch of FoodKick

FreshDirect announced the expansion of FoodKick, its mobile-first, food delivery business that offers a curated selection of fresh food, alcohol, local goods, and everyday essentials–all delivered in as little as an hour. Launched in early 2016, FoodKick has now expanded its service to neighborhoods throughout Manhattan. FoodKick is a strategic addition to FreshDirect’s residential and office businesses, with the combined portfolio poised to meet the full range of customers’ food needs. With the FoodKick mobile iOS and Android apps, customers can shop from a dynamic editorial feed that changes multiple times per day, with hand-picked offerings that include ripe seasonal produce, meal hacks, local favorites, and booze delivered cold. In addition, customers can choose from a broader selection of pantry staples, home essentials, prepared meals, fresh meat and seafood, specialty items, and more. At launch, FoodKick Manhattan will feature content-driven programming with brand partner Coca-Cola in a series of activations highlighting “drinks served cold” messaging, tailored to the on-demand customer. Additionally, a variety of local and exclusive products from partners such as Bien Cuit Bakery, Baked by Melissa, RISE Coffee and Doughnut Plant will be available. Operations in Manhattan will be based at FoodKick’s new Midtown West location with Brooklyn and Queens operations based in the company’s Williamsburg location.
