We help grocery stores build, expand, grow, change, and everything in between.

Takeoff is bridging the gap between retail and technology.

Our technology was developed by grocers, for grocers.

Our eGrocery solution was created with the grocer and the shopper in mind. Grocery is an incredibly complex industry, and our products are unlike any other: they are low-value, perishable, heavy, and low-margin. Our automated solution is flexible enough to manage these complexities. We ensure the correct picking method for the correct product!
Takeoff was founded in the fall of 2016 by José Vicente Aguerrevere and Max Pedró. Both Max and José bring a wealth of knowledge and passion for grocery from over a decade of executive experience in the grocery industry.  Since then, Takeoff has flourished.  We are at over 100 employees and growing!
