snappy shopper five million shoppers

Snappy Shopper is expecting to complete its five millionth order in the coming days, as 2022 looks to be a record-breaking year for the company.

According to the delivery platform, retailers are consistently reporting basket increases of up to 160% through Snappy Shopper compared to in-store.

Additionally, a survey of Snappy’s retailer network found that its partnered stores have been able to recruit shoppers who would otherwise not visit the store in person, with 80% of their Snappy sales coming from new customers.

The platform has been able to achieve this growth despite amassing just £19.,4m in post Series A funding, in comparison to dark site grocery delivery giant Gorillas, which has had to lay off 300 head office employees despite raising more than £1bn for its UK operations.

Mike Callachan, CEO at Snappy Shopper, said: “As we celebrate the milestone of our five millionth order through the Snappy Shopper app, we continue to develop our technology to support independent retailers and combat the threat posed to their businesses by dark stores.

“The sustained growth of the platform and growing demand from both sides of the marketplace (retailers and consumers) confirm our position in the market as being the better, less capital intensive solution to rapid grocery delivery by driving incremental sales straight into the existing UK convenience store network.”
