SpartanNash, a Michigan-based food solutions company, has launched a new partnership with DoorDash. The delivery service will now deliver from more than 100 SpartanNash owned banners, as well as the company’s network of 2,100 independent grocery stores.
SpartanNash owns and operates 145 supermarket locations under several banners including Family Fare, Martin’s Super Markets, D&W Fresh Market and more, where private brands, such as Our Family, can be found.
“We are excited to partner with SpartanNash to bring innovative eCommerce solutions to their beloved grocery banners across the Midwest, independent grocers and retailers so that they can build their omnichannel presence and provide consumers with access to convenient, on-demand grocery delivery,” said Tony Xu, co-founder and CEO of DoorDash.
First covered by Store Brands’ sister publication Progressive Grocer, in addition to improving its delivery options, SpartanNash will act as a distributor of pantry and household items to DoorDash’s DashMart locations. This initiative with the platform’s c-stores will launch in New York City, and includes plans for a continual expansion.
“Customer-centric innovation is a key priority to drive growth at SpartanNash, and joining forces with DoorDash will enable us to expand our customer base and capture more of the grocery retail market by rapidly scaling our digital offering with a leading partner,” explained Tony Sarsam, SpartanNash’s president and CEO. “We know our customers’ grocery needs well and have the supply chain and retail footprint to provide strategic service based on their preferences. This partnership with DoorDash complements our collective strengths and will drive growth across the food ecosystem — from food distribution to e-commerce — to deliver the ingredients for a better life."
