Instacart, a new on-demand grocery delivery service is revolutionising the grocery shopping industry.



How Instacart works
Instacart began in 2012 by former Amazon engineer who realised there is a gap in the industry from what online ordering and delivery service was supposed to be and what he was experiencing from a grocery delivery service living in San Francisco.

The pickup and delivery service was still a pretty archaic system, everybody was getting things delivered to their homes at their doorsteps, but for groceries, he always had to go and pick and choose the items and so that kind of sparked one idea.

In 2012, he created a grocery platform -a new system that he called Instacart.

Instacart revolutionised the grocery demand industry with its partnerships with big names such as Whole Foods Costco super value.

It recently was ranked number as America's most promising companies in 2015 and is currently valued at 3.4 billion dollars after raising an additional four hundred million dollars.


How Does Instacart Works?
