The Opportunity

In 2016, just 1.4% of fast moving consumer goods in the US were bought online. By 2025, this will grow to ~20%, or $100+ billion. The prospect of fast, precise delivery is a key driver of this growth, and we believe that FoodKick will claim the lion's share of this booming market for two main reasons: (1) our revolutionary warehousing allows us to operate with never-before-seen speed and efficiency, and (2) we share the sourcing, supply chain, and expertise of our parent company, FreshDirectthe country's original and largest online grocer. By joining FoodKick, you will get not just a front row seat but an opportunity to drive and develop a fast-growing company in a burgeoning, fundamental industry.

About FoodKick

FoodKick is an innovative warehousing startup that makes extraordinary food deliverable on demand, in as little as an hour.

We believe that fast access to extraordinary food can help people save time and live more vibrant lives. We also believe that every person wants to live authentically as their highest self, to contribute meaningfully through challenging work, and to be appreciated for their efforts and personhood. We aim to honor these worthy desires by nurturing a culture of respect and providing world class training, hospitality, and growth opportunities to employees at all levels.

We are also aware that while advanced logistics and technology make our world more convenient, humans are at risk of losing sight of community and the long-term, global impact of consumption. No industry is more central to this dilemma than food. So, we have asked ourselves two questions: "Can we deliver extraordinary food on demand in a way that increases not just our customer's quality of life, but the health of the environment, our community, and the global food economy?" And, "Can we do this in a way that builds community both inside our plants and in our customer interactions?" We believe we can. Please join us and help us prove it.
