On Monday, October 25th, 2016, FreshDirect celebrated the Manhattan launch of its new on-demand food delivery service, FoodKick, with local notables. FoodKick is a mobile-first food delivery business that offers a curated selection of fresh food, alcohol, local goods and everyday essentials – all delivered within in an hour. Launched in Brooklyn and Queens in 2016, FoodKick has now expanded its service to neighborhoods in Manhattan (they are not delivering in Harlem yet, but they are coming).

The event took place at FoodKick’s new Manhattan headquarters, 630 West 52nd Street, New York, New York.
