FOOD HUBS

All the features your Hub needs

Food Hubs are complex - you need a platform custom built for you. We've carefully designed our platform so that Food Hubs of all sizes can stay organized, efficient, and profitable!

A One-Stop-Shop Platform

Your Hub's Local Line storefront is streamlined, easy-to-navigate, and optimized across all devices for a great customer experience.
Create a one-stop-shop for your community to access well-grown, local food.

Tailor-Made Price Lists

With dedicated catalogs and customer lists, you can tailor your storefront to the right audience and maximize your sales.

Simplified, Single Checkout

Your customers can shop from any of your local producers in one place and enjoy a simple checkout process. It's up to you to decide how the profits are divided between you and your producers.

Intuitive & Easy to Navigate

The storefront has been designed for an optimized shopping experience. Your customers have the ability to shop by producer, by category, by stock availability, and can quickly search for their favorite products week after week.

Customized Price Lists

Seasonal Availability

Keep your offerings in season by setting  dates that your products will be available. Choose a start and end date and never worry about selling a product that you don't have in stock.

Scheduled Time slots

Within the pickup locations, you can create time slots to better organize the flow of customers coming to pick up their orders.
