This morning, from the GroceryShop trade show floor, we interviewed one of the most exciting companies in grocery retailing right now – Takeoff Technologies and its founders Max Pedro and Jose Vicente Aguerrevere.
Takeoff Technologies specializes in micro-warehousing automation and deployment. It currently works with Sedano’s and Ahold Delhaize and today announced an exciting partnership with Albertson’s to deploy micro-warehouse operations in some of Albertson’s Bay Area stores. Takeoff is quite possibly the most exciting company changing retail right now.
