7-Eleven has acquired Skipcart, a white-label delivery startup providing same-day and on-demand delivery, The Information reported. No terms or conditions of the deal were clarified, and neither company responded to a request for comment as of press time. Skipcart is valued at $65 million in 2020, according to The Information.
According to the report, the deal will allow 7-Eleven to compete directly with DoorDash — which 7-Eleven has partnered with since 2015 — and Gopuff.
7-Eleven’s acquisition of Skipcart comes at the heels of convenience-store rival, Circle K, boosting its delivery portfolio earlier this summer — hinting at more partnerships to come between c-stores and delivery companies as c-stores become more foodservice-focused.Restaurant Dive
