LUBBOCK, Texas — As families begin to gather again for graduation celebrations, food continues to be an important part of those special occasions. All United Supermarkets and Market Street locations across Texas now offer online party tray and cake ordering, making it easier than ever for guests to prepare for those special events.
Just in time for graduation season, this expansion is yet another step in making the e-commerce more comprehensive and equal to all the convenient services guests find inside the store.
“We are truly excited to continue the expansion of our e-commerce offerings,” said Sidney Hopper, president of The United Family. “Being able to meet our guests’ needs in the most convenient way possible is what we are here to do. This furthers our ability to do that.”
Online offerings for party trays include everything from party sub platters and flatbread paninis to shrimp cocktail and sushi trays. Guests can even find the perfect charcuterie platter to pair with a bottle of wine to share with friends.
If guests are planning a party for the kids, look no further than the “Just for Kids” section — complete with ham and cheese sandwich platters, chicken tenders with dipping sauce or even cheeseburger sliders.
No celebration or gathering is complete without something sweet. Now, guests can order custom cakes from the store bakery using the online ordering platform.
“E-commerce is here to stay and we intend to do everything we can to enhance and build that avenue of our business,” Hopper said. “We look forward to providing this new service to our guests and look forward to other innovations and expansions in the future.”
