History and business model

Amazon Fresh Truck

AmazonFresh initially offered home grocery delivery to residents of the Seattle suburb of Mercer Island in an invitation-only beta test in August 2007.[1] It has since expanded to a number of Seattle-area ZIP codes, including the suburbs of Kirkland and Bellevue.[2]

On June 10, 2013, AmazonFresh expanded to portions of the Los Angeles area, offering "free same-day and early morning delivery on orders over $35." [3] The service became available in San Francisco on December 12, 2013.[4] In July 2014, it expanded into the San Diego area. [5] AmazonFresh also became available in certain areas of Brooklyn, New York on October 17, 2014 and in select parts of Center City Philadelphia, PA on November 18, 2014. Customers in these areas can check availability of the service at their specific address here:
