Through the new home-delivery service, consumers can order 7-Eleven brand staples such as Big Gulp and Slurpee beverages, as well as 7-Eleven Hawaii specialties including Spam Musubi (sushi), Big Bento, Steamed Manapua, Pork Shumai and local snacks, party platters and grocery items.
"We are excited to be working with Vroom Delivery to offer this service, especially given the current circumstances,” said Masayuki Imada, merchandising manager for 7-Eleven Hawaii. “Home delivery is a great way for our customers to safely access our products and order from the comfort of their homes."
Delivery options will initially be available in select areas of Honolulu, with plans to roll out the program across the islands.
"We are very excited to work with 7-Eleven Hawaii to bring this level of service and convenience to Hawaii,” said John Nelson, CEO of Vroom Delivery. “With the meaning of convenience rapidly shifting to e-commerce and home delivery, innovative c-store chains like 7-Eleven Hawaii who are able to offer these services to their customers will have a huge advantage over those chains who do not."
Chicago-based Vroom Delivery is an e-commerce solution for convenience stores, allowing retailers to operate and manage their own e-commerce and delivery services. Vroom Delivery works with more than 800 convenience stores in 20 U.S. states.
