Good Eggs, an online grocery store that offers locally grown and prepared food, has been operating in New Orleans since May 2013, and is still growing.
Good Eggs has just launched a few brand new features on the site. The site redesign, announced last week, will make shopping even easier. Good Eggs says the new site will include highly requested items such as a search feature, filtering, and easy reordering based on past purchases. The company now offers delivery services seven days a week
The local Good Eggs headquarters is currently located at the newly renovated 1770 Tchoupitoulas Street, which was an upgrade from the previous 800 square-foot space in the Bywater. As the team continues to grow, it will have to soon expand once again. They are in the process of moving into a new location in Gert Town as they outgrow their current warehouse space.
“It’s amazing to see how far our team has come. It started with just a couple of folks delivering groceries two days a week from a small cubicle,” said city lead Tess Monaghan. “Today, we have 240 employees in four cities, and have helped positively impact the livelihoods of over 600 small farmers and producers.”
Good Eggs is also actively hiring for a number of roles, including a position on the operations team and Produce Team Lead. The growing team helps offer food and produce from over 115 local producers. The company has tripled their workforce since March to provide the best products in the online store.
To celebrate the new site and many of the Good Eggs milestones over the past year, they are offering customers the ability to add a free bag of local apples to any order placed through September 14th.
Additionally, the company will be co-hosting the Locally Yours PopUp Farmers Market inside the Anthropologie store on Saturday, September 13th from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. They invite the community to join in celebration of apple season. A few of the local farmers and foodmakers will also be present, including Big Easy Bucha, Maxine & Ila’s Caramels, Locally Preserved, Nola Tilth, Nola Pie Guy & more, as well as an apple sampling.
