Healthy is Hard. Processed foods have dominated traditional supermarkets, and the grocery shopping process has become miserable and time consuming. Grit Grocery’s mobile markets make cooking healthy, easy, and fun by bringing smart food options and nutritious meal kit bundles from local farmers and producers, straight to your neighborhood. With a 67% customer retention rate, our customers agree that we’ve stumbled upon a revolutionary solution…a better way to do grocery.
We plan to assemble a fleet of mobile Grit Grocery markets that make eating healthy easier for people across the US. Grocery shopping outside the US looks very different – neighborhood bakers and butchers across the street from fruit stands and flower shops. Small, street-side markets that help communities build stronger bonds and reconnect with their food. We want to bring that experience to you. Within the next two years, we plan to have 25 trucks serving 50 neighborhoods throughout Houston.
