Have you ever been making dinner, only to realize you’ve forgotten a key ingredient? Going to the store isn’t an option, but without that last item, your dinner is ruined! Fear not, however, because there’s a new grocery delivery service in Toronto that is so fast that it can save you and your hard work in the kitchen. Meet Tiggy.
Tiggy is an ultrafast grocery delivery app committed to reducing food waste and supporting the local economies where they operate. Tiggy is on a mission to shift consumer behaviours, helping reduce bulk buying and food waste while giving Canadians back time to do the things they love. Tiggy boasts a growing assortment of products from Canada’s favourite brands in categories like grocery, personal care, pet, and fresh produce, with items delivered for free with no hidden costs or subscription fees. And Tiggy fulfils orders within a mind-boggling 15 minute time frame.
Tiggy has developed an easy-to-use app, backed by their own proprietary and highly sophisticated technology, to give shoppers the ability to place orders within minutes and receive them nearly as quickly. Tiggy’s back-end inventory and procurement system allows the company to order quantities with precision to reduce food waste, and the ability to operate faster than competing web-based platforms.
After launching in Vancouver in the fall of 2021, Tiggy currently operates ten micro-fulfillment centers in Toronto and Vancouver, with plans to expand further across Canada. “We’re thrilled to offer busy city dwellers the ultimate convenience with reliable, speedy delivery combined with a growing assortment of exciting products that includes relevant and sustainable local brands,” said Eugene Bisovka, co-founder of Tiggy. “Once people try Tiggy, their frequency of using the app increases week over week, and we’re really excited about that.”
Tiggy has now officially expands its Toronto delivery zones from two to four, with a new micro fulfillment centre on College St. near Dufferin St. and another on Queen St. W., near Niagara Street. Earlier this month, Tiggy opened a micro fulfillment centre in Vancouver in Kitsilano and another in North Vancouver. In the coming weeks, the startup plans to launch in Burnaby, B.C., located in the centre of Metro Vancouver, and the third-largest city in the province. It will also soon service Toronto’s bustling midtown.
Tiggy’s busiest time is in the late afternoon and early evening, with half of its orders taking place between 5PM and 7PM. Fifteen percent of orders are now made at breakfast, with milk, fresh fruits and pastries from local bakeries among morning favourites. As well, lunch hour orders continue to increase with nearly 25 percent of customers now ordering between noon and 2PM.
“As people head back to the office, and we expand our ready-made meal category, we expect more people will use Tiggy as a lunch option. Our delivery is free, and our products have no markup, so we are far less pricey than food delivery apps, which is a multi billion dollar market in Canada that we’re tapping into,” said Bisovka.
Along with speed, sustainability is another core value for Tiggy. Among healthy alternative foods, and ready made meals, fresh produce is a top performing category for Tiggy with the company recently launching surplus bags that include nearly, or recently expired, perishable foods, starting at $5 in partnership with global sustainability movement, Too Good To Go. These efforts are part of Tiggy’s commitment to eliminating food waste from its operations, while also encouraging their customers to buy only what they need, reducing unnecessary waste on both sides of the equation.
Supporting local is another pillar of Tiggy’s, with the company showcasing a variety of home grown brands and businesses in the various markets where they operate. In Vancouver, Tiggy users can shop from their favorite local bakeries, food, beauty and pet brands, and more, such as Kliig Candle Co., Bonchaz Bakery, Lemon Square, Goodly Soups, Granville Island Pet Treatery. In Toronto, customers can find local brands like General Assembly Pizza, Crafty Ramen Noodles, recently launched, ready in 10 minute gourmet meals from SPATULA Foods, and more.
I had the chance to try out Tiggy, and I can attest to how incredibly fast this service is, and how easy it was to use. The app is incredibly user friendly, and I was impressed by the variety of options available, including fresh produce and packaged goods. I was able to get everything I needed without having to leave my couch, except to receive my purchases. My order was at my door in 13 minutes flat. I was truly blown away.
