A company that began during the last recession, Modern Market Eatery has always been an innovative brand accustomed to adapting quickly. Therefore the decision to offer grocery items to guests amid one of the world’s largest health and economic crises was an easy one.
As grocery stores run low on staples, such as fresh vegetables, fruits and meats, Modern Market is making its high-quality supply chain accessible to guests. With easy access to produce and proteins, and competitive prices that rival most grocery stores for the quantity and quality of items, Modern Market is trying to fill a need in the community.
Last week the eatery rolled out grocery boxes and a la carte grocery and prepared food items for online ordering to all of its currently open markets, including Texas, Arizona and Colorado. Initially tested in the company’s Colorado restaurants, groceries have proven to be extremely popular.
“Our boxes not only give guests what they need, same day delivery, they allow guests to take advantage of the high quality food in our supply chain that may be hard to find at grocery stores right now,” says co-founder and co-CEO, Anthony Pigliacampo. “We want to give guests access to fresh produce and high-quality meats and prepared foods at reasonable prices that, at the moment, our local grocers may be out of.”
The current grocery offerings include the following. Additional items are being added as interest grows.
