JackBe, the first-ever curbside drive-thru grocer, announced it will hold a grand opening at its first location on Tuesday.

Located at 178th and N. May just outside of Edmond, JackBe is a new type of grocer focused on simplifying the customer shopping experience by making groceries available ‘on demand’. The location is the first of three slated to open in 2023.

“By opening JackBe, we’re introducing a new way for customers to shop that provides convenience, value and great quality with no substitutions,” said Alex Ruhter, JackBe CEO. “We have studied customers’ needs and created a shopping experience that’s designed specifically for busy people. We’re committed to our promise to make grocery shopping a better experience. That’s why we’re excited to share JackBe with the Oklahoma City community, where we are founded and headquartered.”

Founded by Ruhter and his three co-founders, the team has been working together over the past three years to create a company that makes buying groceries more enjoyable throughout the whole experience.

JackBe is a concept that was built from the ground up to operate exclusively as a location where customers come to pick up their groceries ordered through the JackBe app. Within minutes, customers can place an order and when ready, pull into one of the drive-thru bays where a JackBe team member will deliver the groceries right to their car.

The store has the ability to serve up to 200 orders per hour and carries the most frequently purchased products from all the categories customers need to restock their home, including fresh produce, meats, baked goods, deli, health and beauty care, and baby and pet supplies.

Ruhter said that JackBe stores will soon feature prepared meals and local brands in many departments, staying true to the company’s commitment to supporting local businesses.

“Our commitment to our shoppers is to do everything in our power to offer the best shopping experience delivering both speed and quality— and we look forward to supporting more communities as we grow,” Ruhter said.

Ruhter says innovation and the ability to be “JackBe nimble, JackBe quick” is at the core of all the company stands for.

JackBe’s first location is located at 18001 N. May Ave. and will be open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m., Monday through Sunday. For more information on JackBe, click here.
