Online Grocery Market doubled from 2016 to 2018. 10% of US Consumers regularly shop online for Groceries and is poised to expand greatly due to COVID-19. https://www.businessinsider.com/online-grocery-report
The share of U.S. consumers who purchased groceries online in the past year has jumped from less than a quarter to well over a third, with Amazon and Walmart by far the top purchasing venues, according to Coresight Research.
Amazon suspending branded delivery service to handle surge in orders.
Before the COVID-19 Crisis, all economic indicators showed that Online Grocery Shopping has doubled between 2016 and 2018, and that it was on track to double again by 2023. Due to COVID-19, even large companies like Amazon are cutting back on providing B2B service to take care of their own surge in online orders.
This means a few things.
1) Online Grocery Shopping is on the rise and becoming a social norm.
2) There is an insufficient amount of delivery services to handle demand.
3) Even after the COVID-19 Crisis is over, delivery businesses will still be growing.
USVetsDeliver market research based on pre-COVID-19 data, shows we can meet our delivery goals serving just 3.5% of Humboldt County.
However, right now there is a greater need in our county and we plan to do our best to serve as many Humboldt County residents as possible.
USVetsDeliver can serve twice the people by hiring twice the drivers and spreading our resources out, but ultimately we will need to expand the business relatively quickly from 10 to possibly 15-20 Delivery Vans and 30-40 Employees.
