Grocery Server is a hyperlocal digital marketing platform.

Connecting brands to consumers.

The average American consumer spends over $6,000 per year on groceries - more than four times the amount they spend on travel. Consumers rely on specialized travel search engines like Kayak and Expedia to help them sort through thousands of travel options. We believe that consumers should have the same type of tools to help plan a trip they make twice a week: to the grocery store. Grocery Server combines these tools with an unparalleled database of local retail offers to place branded products on to millions of shopping lists on web, mobile, social and email apps - every week.

With a world-class distributed technical team located in California, Seattle, Ottawa (Canada), Pune (India), and Malaysia, Grocery Server has built an unparalleled technology stack and local data services.
