Foxtrot Plans Major Expansion
Disruptor modernizes the corner store.
Launched in 2014 as a digital-only delivery service, Foxtrot bills itself as the modern convenience store that combines what it calls in-store curated discovery with 30-minute delivery and 5-minute pickup. Now a popular local retailer, with16 brick and mortar locations across Chicago, Dallas, and Washington, DC, including Georgetown.
Foxtrot recently secured $100 million in a Series C round led by D1 Capital Partners with plans to open 50 locations over the next two years as it seeks to “modernize the nostalgic corner store experience” with a focus on discovery, local and digital.
The store features core pantry essentials, favorite treats and hand-picked wines, spirits and local beers. Nearly a quarter of all shelf space is dedicated to locally sourced items from neighborhood artisans and to emerging purveyors to support discovery.
