GrubMarket Acquires Boston Organics to Continue its Nationwide Expansion
In an effort to continue our nationwide expansion, GrubMarket has purchased a prominent local and organic online grocery delivery company based in the Boston area, Boston Organics.
Boston Organics is an online farm-to-table grocery delivery service in Massachusetts. The deal marks our third farm-to-table grocery delivery acquisition in the past four months after acquiring Michigan based Doorganics in late November and San Francisco based Eating With The Seasons in January.
Boston Organics, founded in Charlestown, Massachusetts in 2001, delivers fresh, certified organic produce and groceries to Boston homes and offices. Their mission is to support organic farms and food and to help customers skip the grocery store for good. Boston Organics will continue to operate from its headquarters, led by its current leadership team and founder, Jeff Barry.
“GrubMarket shares Boston Organics’ passion and commitment for supporting regional and organic farms and producers,” says Barry. “By joining GrubMarket, we are excited to have access to their software expertise, which will allow us to elevate our customer experience in this dynamic grocery delivery market.”
For Grubmarket, the acquisition is another step in the our nationwide expansion plans as we lean into growth amidst never before seen levels of demand for online grocery delivery.
“Boston Organics has long been a leader in farm-to-table grocery delivery. We are incredibly excited to welcome Jeff Barry and his team, along with their nearly two decades of grocery delivery experience into the GrubMarket Family,” says Mike Xu, CEO of GrubMarket. “This acquisition marks a significant milestone in our expansion plan as the first East Coast presence for GrubMarket.”
Boston Organics’ mission is to support local New England farmers, food makers, and artisans, by hand-delivering their products to customers’ front doors. In particular, the company sources as many items as possible from within the State of Massachusetts and around New England, including a variety of delicious foods from small local farmers and foodmakers who might not have the scale to obtain shelf space at larger grocery stores. From a business perspective, Boston Organics caters to residential customers, by offering hundreds of items that they can enjoy on their own or with their families.
