"JackBe is your curbside drive-thru grocer who fills your order and delivers it to your vehicle when you want, with no substitutions. We have created the grocery store experience that we wished existed but didn’t…until now,” said Alex Ruhter, co-founder of JackBe.

Imagine a grocery store that does all the shopping for you; enter JackBe, the premiere curbside drive-thru grocer. Launching its first store in January 2023, the new-to-market grocer has opened up the opportunity to anyone interested in owning a piece of the action with a Wefunder campaign currently running.

Founded by Alex Ruhter, and his three co-founders, the team has been working together over the past three years to create a company that makes shopping nearly fun while delivering the goods. “To the time-challenged shopper needing a simpler way to grocery shop, JackBe is your curbside drive-thru grocer who fills your order and delivers it to your vehicle when you want, with no substitutions. We have created the grocery store experience that we wished existed but didn’t…until now,” said Alex.

With a focus on creating stores that only operate to serve customers picking up, they have meticulously developed a concept that not only delivers the best products to customers quickly and easily but bespeaks itself to the bottom line.

"We are incredibly excited to not only open our first store but to share with others the opportunity to be in on the ground floor of what we believe to be the future of grocery shopping. We have taken this company from concept to build out, and we could not have done it without the belief and encouragement of others, and for that, we are forever humbled," added Alex.

The initial response to investment in JackBe has been inspiring. Each round of funding has been more successful than the previous, as people increasingly catch the vision and want to be a part of what we are becoming. To date, over $7MM has been raised privately, and the Wefunder campaign is over $330,000 and growing.
