While retail stores have had a very rough year and many have closed for good, new ideas are always percolating. Foxtrot is a new upscale food and specialty retailer headquartered in Chicago, that is now expanding across the country. This is a company that started online-only in 2014 and is pivoting into bricks and mortar. They have 19 stores now and plan to have 63 locations by the end of 2022.
Foxtrot has a really good vibe, great wine and food for convenience shoppers. They are also innovative- with a signature 30-minute delivery window, 5-minute pickup service and cafes that stay open into the evening. Oh- and among other industry hires, they have brought on Whole Foods Market veteran Mitch Madoff as senior vice president of private label and supply chain.
They have hit the market like a tornado!
At FourStar we love success stories and so far, this is a great one. Have a good read!
