Just in time for summer Slurpee cravings, 7-Eleven Canada is expanding its at-home delivery options by partnering with Skip the Dishes.
The move comes just weeks after Foodora pulled out of Canada, leaving retailers and restaurants with fewer third-party deliver options.
The food delivery app closed its Canadian operations on May 11, just months after a key labour board decision laid the groundwork for the company’s workers to push for unionization. Foodora has operated in 10 Canadian cities over the last five years and boasted 3,000 clients on the platform.
The move left many c-store operators, from independents to Couche-Tard and 7-Eleven, in a quandary at a time when demand for delivery is through the roof.
As consumers embrace at-home delivery, c-stores are upping their game.
In Canada, 7-Eleven customers will be able to order a variety of hot foods, from pizza to wedges and wings, as well as cool treats. The company also partners with UberEats for its #HereInTheNeighbourhood delivery program.
In the U.S., 7-Eleven recently announced that in addition to its proprietary 7NOW delivery app, it was partnering with national delivery platforms Postmates, DoorDash and Favor to delivery from 7-Eleven stores available to as many customers as possible. The company says the partnerships enables it to expand on-demand ordering in more than 90% of participating U.S.
