Instant Grocery Delivery Becomes a Thing in Texas: Whole Foods, Central Market and More In 60 Minutes

BY Samantha Klaassen // 09.20.16

Takeout can easily appear at your doorstep with the touch of a button (a little late-night pizza never hurt anyone), but fast food seems to be earning a whole new meaning with the rise in popularity of grocery delivery services.

Team PaperCity recently decided to try Instacart, which brings your entire grocery list in one hour. It was right in the middle of a chaotic deadline — and were we ever grateful. We placed an order and just a few clicks and 60 minutes later, our goodies, including Chameleon cold-brew coffee, 365 Cape Cod Trail Mix, Kombucha, Kind bars, and Noosa yoghurt, arrived.

How it works: Instacart connects you with a local personal shopper who quickly selects the freshest products, whether you order through the app or website. Participating Dallas vendors include Whole Foods, Central Market, Kroger, Spec’s, Total Wine, Tom Thumb, and Petco; Houston vendors include Whole FoodsCostco, Central Market, HEBPetco, and Spec’s.
