ShopHeroSince launching full operations in January, ShopHero’s online shopping and home delivery solution is now operating at nine grocery stores, including three in Utah – Reams Springville Market, Payson Marketplace and Stewart’s Marketplace.

ShopHero provides a turn-key online grocery shopping platform and home delivery service for independent grocers permitting them to remain competitive with national retailers.

The Provo-based company’s proprietary platform provides white-labeled, modern, web and native mobile e-commerce for grocers. There secret sauce is an innovative fulfillment model where they directly hire grocers’ own employees to pick, pack and deliver their grocers’ own orders. This allows ShopHero to rapidly implement e-commerce and on location fulfillment services at scale with minimal oversight from ShopHero and minimal impact on the grocer’s operations.

“As we’ve validated our model in the independent grocery industry, we’ve found the pain is much deeper than we even anticipated,” Matt Garner, ShopHero CEO said. “In my experience as an entrepreneur, simultaneously hitting an incredibly ripe market with the best-in-class solution is a rare opportunity and we’re in a fantastic position to continue to capitalize on it. I’m super excited about the traction we’ve generated and the rate our growth is accelerating.”
