Instacart Acquires E-Commerce Platform Rosie; Chris Rogers and Nick Nickitas Share

Thursday, September 8th, 2022

As local and independent grocers and wholesalers look to further integrate their operations with e-commerce platforms, partners like Instacart are helping to lead the way. The fast-growing company recently made yet another acquisition in this vein, this time scooping up Rosie while expanding its Instacart Platform e-commerce offerings.

Chris Rogers, Chief Business Officer, Instacart“Our focus is on creating technology solutions that are tailor-made to meet the online and in-store needs of all grocers—whether they’re national chains or independently owned and operated,” said Chris Rogers, Chief Business Officer at Instacart. “Local and independent grocers are so important to the grocery ecosystem. They have loyal customers, create meaningful job opportunities, and serve as cornerstones of their communities. The Rosie team understands these grocers better than anyone, and that’s why we’re proud to welcome them to Instacart. Together, we’ll build more technologies that help independent grocers accelerate their pace of innovation, so they can continue to compete, grow, and serve their customers however they choose to shop.”

The Ithaca, New York-based Rosie team has spent nearly a decade building relationships and supporting local and independent retailers like Rosauers Supermarkets, Lee’s Marketplace, Niemann Foods, and Geissler’s Supermarkets across more than 40 states. With the acquisition of Rosie, Instacart is introducing new e-commerce solutions built specifically for local and independent retailers that complement the company’s existing Instacart Platform offerings.

Through the Instacart Platform, Instacart is further enabling grocers to chart their own digital transformation through a suite of enterprise-grade technologies. With Instacart Platform, Instacart gives retailers access to the solutions behind Instacart’s consumer marketplace, helping retailers like Schnucks, Tops Friendly Markets, and The Fresh Market create new online and in-store solutions that enhance the customer experience and help their businesses grow.

Nick Nickitas, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Rosie“For nearly a decade, our team has lived, breathed, and devoted ourselves to the success of local independent grocers, and I couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve accomplished together,” said Nick Nickitas, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Rosie. “Instacart’s mission of powering the future of grocery is closely aligned with our own, and I’m confident that combining our teams and technologies is the way to best continue serving these important retailers. Together, we will continue to innovate and build easy-to-use and affordable digital solutions that help our retailer, wholesaler, and brand partners thrive and better meet the needs of their customers.”

Moving forward, the Rosie team will lead Instacart’s business strategy and technology development for local independent grocers, as Instacart continues to build best-in-class e-commerce and fulfillment solutions for this critical segment of the grocery industry. Rosie’s product features include shoppable weekly ads, store loyalty and rewards program integrations, third-party fulfillment logistics integrations, payment processing, and more—all developed for local and independent grocers.
