In February of 2012, New York City and New York State announced this massive subsidy package to finance the relocation of FreshDirect to the Harlem River Yard in the South Bronx. South Bronx residents and community-based organizations through the South Bronx Unite! coalition have opposed and filed litigation to prevent the move because, among other things, it would add thousands of car and diesel truck trips every day to a residential community with high asthma rates and a high pollution burden. Grocers and bodega owners join in opposition to this outrageous misuse of public funds that would give Fresh Direct an unfair competitive advantage leading to the closure of vital bricks and mortar stores, and the jobs that they provide, in the South Bronx and throughout New York City.

Different Is Good: FreshDirect Redefines the NYC Grocery Landscape For an example of the relationship between technology and strategic positioning, consider FreshDirect. The New York City--based grocery firm focused on the two most pressing problems for Big Apple shoppers: selection is limited and prices are high. Both of these problems are a function of the high cost of real estate in New York. The solution? Use technology to craft an ultraefficient model that makes an end-run around stores. The firm's "storefront" is a Web site offering one-click menus, semiprepared specials like "meals in four minutes," and the ability to pull up prior grocery lists for fast reorders—all features that appeal to the time-strapped Manhattanites who were the firm's first customers. (The Web's not the onl...
First week living back in NYC since 2011! Trying to eat all organic at home has been a little challenging because the only Whole Foods & Trader Joes grocery stores near us require either a long walk or a subway train to get to. I was looking for a way to make life a little easier in this department, so I decided to try GROCERY DELIVERY! Here is my first experience using Fresh Direct. Let me know if any of you have any other suggestions! ;) Side Note: It's pretty hot here in NYC & in the apartment, so until our air conditioner gets fixed, the sweaty face & messy hair are kind of inevitable right now. ;P
Masterpass-enabled bots work across multiple verticals – from restaurants to retail – making conversational commerce frictionless while delivering a more personalized experience. Historically, Fresh Direct has operated as an online grocer delivering to residences and offices in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Working with Mastercard, Fresh Direct now makes it easy for customers in those markets to browse, shop and purchase their groceries directly within Messenger.
FreshDirect could be heading towards the block in the not too distant future, according to The Deal's Sarah Pringle. According to Pringle, the timing may not be far off because of the increasing threats from various players including Ahold USA's Peapod LLC and Amazon.com Inc's AmazonFresh LLC business. Closely held FreshDirect, based in Long Island City, is an online order-and-delivery grocer serving primarily the New York City metro area. With additional customers in New Jersey and Connecticut, FreshDirect distinguishes itself via its focus on organic and locally grown food products and meals.

July 23, 2013 @SouthBronxUnite members and other Mott Haven residents disrupt the Industrial Development Agency meeting responsible for approving the gifting of millions of dollars in public monies and subsidies to online-grocer FreshDirect to relocate to the South Bronx waterfront, permanently blocking it. The proposed move will also bring around 1000 truck trips to streets were deadly truck accidents are a common occurrence, and a neighborhood suffering 8 times the average asthma rate. During this meeting South Bronx residents ask poignant questions and make relevant comments, while IDA outgoing president, Seth Pinsky, orders them shut up and ask them to leave. IDA member Marlene Cintrón also asks the residents of the borough she 'represents' to shut up. South Bronx residents were j...
