London, 16th April 2021: On a mission to make convenience even more convenient, Weezy – the UK’s leading on-demand grocery supplier – has partnered with what3words to make locations easier to find and every Weezy delivery seamless. Weezy’s new partnership enables customers to order their groceries to wherever they happen to be.
“We’re really excited to be offering our customers what they want, when they need it,” said Kristof Van Beveren, Co-founder and CEO of Weezy. “With lockdown easing in the UK, we know that friends and family want to get together safely outside and we wanted to make it simple for them to get quality products anywhere. Now they can meet for a picnic or even a BBQ on the beach without having to carry anything there. Weezy can deliver a full shop or just some beers.”
Street addresses don’t always guide delivery drivers to the right entrance and some postcodes cover large areas. Weezy’s new partnership removes the need for phone calls asking for additional directions and helps to provide every customer with the very best Weezy experience.
what3words has divided the world into a grid of 3m squares and given each a unique what3words address - made of three dictionary words. For example, the viewpoint at the top of Hampstead Heath can be found at ///single.glow.most.
Chris Sheldrick, Co-founder and CEO of what3words. “Consumer expectations for on-demand deliveries are rising. They expect fast deliveries, without holdups, and without having to pick up the phone to give directions. Weezy’s relationship with what3words helps to exceed those expectations with quick and accurate deliveries to exactly where their customers want them.”
Kristof Van Beveren continued, “It’s convenience without compromise. Whether a hard-to-find home, a Lucozade to a tired rower, nappies to a mum on a bench, or even dog treats for that puppy on the green – you simply add in your what3words address on checkout and sit back while you wait for your Weezy delivery.”
Weezy – the pioneer of first-mile logistics – works with local bakers and butchers, and sources fruit and veg from local markets to stock a wide but carefully curated range of over 2,000 high-quality products at retail prices. The range also includes alcoholic drinks, dairy, snacks, party games like Twister, and pharmacy products for emergency needs, all delivered in minutes.
After a hugely successful first year in London, and following launches in Bristol and Brighton last month, Weezy is also continuing its national expansion into the Manchester area today.
