Beelivery, which claims to be the UK market leader in on-demand grocery delivery, has secured a £4.5m investment from UKTV Ventures, and GreenBank Capital Inc, a merchant banking business listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange.
The delivery specialist, which works with 15,000 independent, registered delivery drivers, delivers 24/7 to more than 80 towns and cities across the UK and claims it can get an order to the customer in as little as 15 minutes. Beelivery is not attached to any specific grocers or shops, so the drivers can go to their nearest grocery store or corner store to pick up the items – whether it be a Londis, Tesco, ASDA or Sainsbury’s.
Beelivery will use the investment to help accelerate expansion, new innovations and brand awareness as it seeks to gain 450,000 new customers over the next two years.
Chairman and co-founder of Beelivery Yazan Bin Mohammad said: “Now more than ever, we have seen that being able to access groceries and household supplies without going to the shops is essential.”
