Some Canadians will be able to get Slurpees, condoms, medicine and ice cream delivered to them at the touch of a button.
Berlin-based food delivery app Foodora launched an offering Thursday
that will allow customers to order products from convenience store chain
7-Eleven in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton.
The partnership will make use of 48 7-Eleven locations to facilitate
deliveries of snacks and everyday essentials including milk, bread,
fresh fruit, Tylenol, pizza, taquitos, chips and chocolate.
The deal marks the first time Foodora has partnered with a
convenience store in Canada and signals efforts by the company to branch
out in the market beyond only offering prepared meals from restaurants
and quick-serve brands.
In recent years, the company has run promotions to deliver boxes of
munchies for 4-20 marijuana celebrations, and semi-permanent tattoos,
socks and vegan soap for various other holidays.
