Cville-based Online Grocer Upgrading Thanks to Fundraising

Posted: Updated:

Charlottesville-based online grocer Relay Foods is making some major upgrades, thanks to a record fundraising round. The company recently attracted more than $8 million in funding.  

It's using that money to buy new vehicles, expand its warehouse and cooler space, and begin production of its own prepared foods.

Co-founder and President Arnie Katz says it's all part of Relay's plan to corner the online grocery market.

"In a few years, in a decade or so, you won't see as many brick and mortar grocers. They will be a thing of the past, and you'll buy most of your food online. Relay is planning to be a significant player when that happens," said Katz.

Relay Foods serves customers from Maryland through Virginia, and is planning eventual expansion into North Carolina and farther south.
