FreshDirect Delivers Joy to His Home

FreshDirect has been delivering healthy, fresh food options to doorstep fo 20 years. Customers come to and stay with the brand for different reasons but one thing is consistent. The service has enhanced their lives. To celebrate FreshDirect's 20th anniversary, we asked brand loyalists like Hadley Sui, food stylist and chef, to take us into her kitchen and share why FreshDirect remains a staple in her life. Here's Hadley's FreshDirect story.

Necessity led Hadley to FreshDirect; excellence kept her there. "In 2019 I began doing more food stylist work and needed supplies quickly, and in large quantities", she says. The trained pastry chef was impressed by FreshDirect's superior food quality and timeless. "Then there was the pandemic and I didn't want to go to the grocery store", she adds. After relying on the brand for work she decided to make it a part of her family's regimen as well.

"FreshDirect has really streamlined my home life and enjoyment in the kitchen", she says. "Ido lots of cooking on a regular basis and thanks to FreshDirect, I have saved a lot of time and energy. I can preorder what I need, so I don't have to spend extra hours in the grocery store shopping for a home or work. And I think more than anything, it's been  time saver that I can trust. Now I can't imagine doing things any other way'.

FreshDirect is celebrating 20 years of making online

grocery shopping quick, easy and fresh.
