Our eGrocery solution was created with the grocer and the shopper in mind. Grocery is an incredibly complex industry, and bringing groceries online presents a number of unique challenges. We don’t let that stop us! Our team is on a mission to transform the grocery industry for the better.
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 270 employees and growing!
Takeoff was founded in the fall of 2016 by our co-founders, José Vicente Aguerrevere and Max Pedró.
In 2017 we partnered with our robotics and automation partner KNAPP. In the following years we partnered with additional solution partners including Hussmann and Google.
In 2018 we proudly launched our first micro fulfillment site in Miami, FL, marking the “Worlds First Robotic Supermarket.”
In 2019 we exponentially grew our team to over 100 employees, shifting from a startup to an early growth company.
In 2020 we began building our first international site, ensuring that the sun would never set on Takeoff.
In 2022, we are gearing up to expand. We have launched over 20 live sites and have dozens more in the pipeline.
Takeoff’s micro fulfillment solution is so efficient that we can operate at a lower cost-to-serve than a traditional brick & mortar store. This has the power to unlock cheaper grocery prices and democratize access to quality, nutritious foods around the world. We are passionate about using innovation to remove barriers.
