The news comes amid a period of rapid development in the arena of ultrafast delivery, with new partnerships and providers popping up seemingly every day. Buyk is a new player on the scene, having launched 15-minute delivery in New York City in September 2021 with the added perk of no minimum spend and no delivery fees.
Under the Grubhub partnership, Buyk will handle all fulfillment and delivery of orders. Customers in NYC and Chicago will be able to order from more than 30 participating local retailers through the Grubhub marketplace in the coming weeks. All told, customers will have access to 15-minute delivery for more than 2,000 grocery and convenience items from local and national vendors, as well as Buyk’s own private label products.
“We’re excited to work with Buyk and together deliver everyday essentials and grocery items even faster to our diners,” said Kyle Goings, Director of Growth and New Verticals at Grubhub in a statement. “This partnership will make the Grubhub Marketplace a one-stop shop for restaurants, convenience items and grocery supplies, building more diner loyalty and helping drive even more orders to all of our restaurant and merchant partners.”
