The Kroger Co., one of the nation’s largest supermarket chains, is launching floral and sushi delivery on the DoorDash marketplace from stores across the country. The new delivery option through DoorDash marks the latest expansion of the grocer’s seamless experience, providing customers with even more opportunities to get fresh, affordable products.
“By offering customer-favorite sushi options and premium floral bouquets through third-party marketplaces we are continuing to evolve and meet customers where and how they are shopping,” said Stuart Aitken, senior vice president and chief merchant & marketing officer. “Whether you are craving fresh, affordable sushi for lunch or want to surprise someone special with a gorgeous fresh floral bouquet, you can now have the items delivered in under an hour. Providing fresh, affordable products to customers using familiar channels is another step in our commitment to provide anything, anytime, anywhere for every customer, every time.”
After piloting the offering to customers in select geographies this fall, Kroger will now offer fresh and convenient delivery from more than 900 sushi locations and 1,600 floral locations nationwide through DoorDash. On DoorDash’s marketplace app and website, shoppers may purchase beautiful, custom-wrapped Bloom Haus by Kroger floral bouquets and freshly-prepared sushi, including rolls and combos, dumplings, poke bowls, bottled sauces and more. Customer orders placed on DoorDash are prepared and packed with care by in-store sushi chefs and floral associates at Kroger’s family of stores, with delivery facilitated by DoorDash Dashers directly to the customer’s doorstep. Customers can also seamlessly gift flowers or freshly-prepared sushi to a loved one for on-demand delivery using the DoorDash gifting feature.
“As we accelerate our mission to help consumers access all the best of their neighborhood with convenience and ease, we’re excited to partner with Kroger to offer a broad selection of their customer favorites on-demand,” said Shanna Prevé, vice president, strategic partnerships and business development at DoorDash. “The trend towards convenience only goes in one direction as customers’ expectations rise, and we’re thrilled to continue to expand into the prepared foods and floral categories with Kroger to satiate a lunch craving or delight someone’s day.”
