Getir, an ultra-fast global delivery company founded in Turkey in 2015 and now valued at $7.7 billion, is now offering its 10-minute delivery service in three major U.S. metro regions: Chicago, New York and Boston.
The company launched U.S. operations in Chicago in November, followed by New York City in December, and now adds Boston to its service area. Operating from 8 a.m. to midnight, Getir will be initially available in downtown Boston, with further expansion plans ahead.
Getir offers approximately 2,000 everyday items, including chocolate, water, dairy, cleaning materials, snack chips, and pet food, for delivery to customers within 10 minutes. The company, which operates throughout Turkey, has been expanding globally in 2021, reports Chain Store Age, launching in the U.K., the Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Portugal.
Getir offers full-time positions, benefits, and employee status to drivers and packers. Drivers are fully insured and provided with e-bikes and e-mopeds, as well as helmets and protective equipment. Additionally, drivers receive comprehensive training and safety courses.
“Following our successful launches in Chicago and New York, we are thrilled to start operating in Boston,” said Nazim Salur, founder of Getir. “We are very happy with the interest we received from our previous U.S. launches, and we are expecting the same from this new location. We offer best-in-class services and will continue our strong expansion plan throughout 2022. As the pioneer in ultrafast grocery deliveries, we are looking forward to introducing Getir to Boston residents.”
