Fresh Direct, LLC Key Developments

FreshDirect Announces the Expansion of its Service to the Washington, D.C

FreshDirect announced the expansion of its service to the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. FreshDirect will start delivering farm-fresh produce, high-quality meat, seafood, dairy, prepared meals, and grocery and household staples to the doors of residents living in D.C., Arlington and McLean, Virginia and Bethesda, Maryland beginning April 5th, 2017. FreshDirect's focus on sourcing and curating the freshest food combined with the fastest farm-to-fridge delivery has established the company as the market leader in the Northeast, already delivering directly to customers in five states, including the New York City and Philadelphia metropolitan areas. FreshDirect sources directly from an extensive network of farms, fisheries, and suppliers, many of which are located in the Northeast. The launch will expand service to Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., offering more than 12,000 high-quality products and giving D.C.-area residents the chance to try unique fresh items such as jumbo blueberries, source-identified organic chicken, and over 30 premium grass-fed beef items. Additionally, FreshDirect brings to D.C. specialty items, such as Roberta's pizza from Brooklyn, Boar's Head deli meats, and wild-caught albacore tuna from the company's extensive private brand collection, JUST FreshDirect. A wide variety of prepared meals and no-subscription meal kits will also be part of the offering, giving D.C. consumers easier options for dinner. In addition to home delivery, FreshDirect also feeds D.C.'s busy workforce with an 'At The Office' service, which includes chef-prepared breakfasts, luncheon platters perfect for business meetings, catering services for events, and popular brands of snacks, beverages, and pantry items. FreshDirect customers can order next-day delivery in the two-hour window of their choice through web or mobile app as early as 6:30 a.m. through 11:00 p.m. Customers can either pay per order for the service cost of $7.99 with a $40 minimum spend per order or pay an annual fee of $129.00 for unlimited free delivery through DeliveryPass. DeliveryPass members also enjoy exclusive special offers and savings. First-timers can get a 2-month trial for 1 cent.
