Giant retailers like Walmart and Amazon see groceries as the next frontier in e-commerce, but Vinita Nair takes you inside FreshDirect, an online grocery service that has been showing up at front doors for more than a decade.
See how the online grocer gets thousands of orders to its customers in New York City daily.
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

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...

Join FreshDirect's co-founder David McInerney, as he champions changing the way people eat as a featured speaker at the 2013 TEDx Manhattan conference. McInerney travels the world meeting with hundreds of farmers, fisherman, and ranchers to source the healthiest, freshest, highest quality foods in existence for FreshDirect's customers. During his travels, McInerney has become keenly aware that there is a fundamental flaw in our food system, which forces our farmers to grow food for transport rather than taste. What's more, today fresh foods don't taste like they should; people aren't eating them, and processed foods are winning--and its crippling our country's health. During TEDx Manhattan, McInerney calls on the retailer and the consumer to help change our broken food cycle and join in...
November 26, 2013: Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that New York State is partnering with Walmart, PepsiCo and FreshDirect this Thanksgiving to help deliver more than 3,000 meals to families in need.
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. Its annual revenue reportedly sits at about $400 million to $500 million. Subscribe to TheStreetTV on YouTube: http://t.st/TheStreetTV For more content from TheStreet visit: http://thestreet.com...
