Foxtrot, a chain of upscale, delivery-focused corner stores and cafés with a dozen locations in Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Dallas, on Monday launched Foxtrot Anywhere, its new national online delivery platform offering its highly curated and local products to customers nationwide.
Foxtrot Anywhere curates gift boxes, top-selling treats and more, pulled directly from its top sellers in store, as well as what’s trending. The launch is additionally being kicked off in partnership with Nilou Motamed, TV personality and former editor-in-chief of Food and Wine, to curate her favorite culinary items. As someone whose career has been dedicated to curation, finely edited storytelling and who is equally food-obsessed, Motamed has curated a collection of small maker spotlight gift boxes and is also donating 10% of the proceeds from each gift box sold to World Central Kitchen, which focuses on emergency and COVID-19 food relief on a global scale.
