Hey there, welcome to Foxtrot.

We’re the digitally native evolution of the corner store—the one-stop-shop for those seeking thoughtful food experiences that are a reflection of themselves and their city. We offer a handpicked curation of daily essentials in-store and delivered in as little as 30 minutes via our app and website

Alongside our investors like Almanac Insights, Momofuku founder David Chang, Sweetgreen Inc. co-founder/co-chief executive officer Nicolas Jammet, and most recently D1 Capital Partners, we’re building an omnichannel brand that seamlessly marries e-commerce delivery, proprietary inventory technology, and the feel-good community of neighborhood stores.

Our storefronts offer the most-loved aspects of neighborhood cafes: beautifully designed interiors that wrap you in the welcoming aroma of locally-sourced coffee, comfortable lounge areas to work and relax in, and Chef-prepared meals to snack on throughout the day. And all in a space that joins mindful people, brands, and goods to create a community of discovery and joy.

Our swift app and online store highlight our e-commerce experience powered by our proprietary inventory and operational technology. We deliver a new kind of convenience that brings the store to your door in 30 minutes.

Since launching our native app in 2013, we now operate a robust e-commerce platform and 20+ retail stores in Chicago, DC, and Dallas as we rapidly scale to take this first-of-its-kind omnichannel brand nationwide.
