ROMARKET Business and Features

| ‘All Roads Lead to Rome, All Deliveries Lead to ROMARKET’

ROMARKET is an ordering and delivery application specializing in local supermarkets, which was created to revitalize local businesses and economy. As the scale of online food services increases every year and the 'Homeconomy (Home+Economy)', where various economic activities are made at home, is gaining attention, the landscape of distribution market has changed significantly. As large quick commerce companies dominate the online distribution market, the market size of supermarkets, also called local marts, has decreased significantly, and local supermarkets and small business owners are facing a threat to their chance of survival. ROMARKET has come to light in the midst of an urgent need for a win-win service that can connect local supermarkets that have lost their place with the online market.

| Possibilities that ROMARKET Noticed

In the ROMARKET's survey on local supermarkets, it turned out that consumers prioritize accessibility to stores and convenience in purchasing. We came up with possibilities in the fact that necessities such as groceries and fresh foods that are immediately needed are being purchased at nearby local supermarkets rather than large retailers due to convenience.
