Personal grocery shopping is on the rise in America. Whether it’s that people just do not have the time to go shopping for themselves, or they just don’t know what they should be purchasing, there is a growing market for the service. There are a few untapped marketplaces for personal shoppers, from the vacation rental/condo business and the healthy/organic industry. On top of vacation rentals and organic food, there is now a newer form of grocery delivery, which is online ordering to be delivered to your doorstep. These are three very different instances in which there is a need, but they are alike in the sense that people will be willing to pay a lot of money for all three of the services.
In the vacation rental/condo business the need is due to the fact that when people come to vacation, the last thing that they want to spend their time on is shopping for food and beverages. This is where people will pay big money, especially since they are already in the spending mood, to have the food they requested delivered to their doorstep without lifting a finger. In the Destin area alone, there have been many small businesses capitalizing on this very opportunity, and once the word inevitably gets out, they become very successful amongst vacationers and long-term renters alike.
