Ever wondered how a promising startup can suddenly falter?

Sometimes, growth isn't just about expanding - it's about evolving.

In this episode, Sarah and Chelsea delve into the story of Foxtrot - the convenience store delivery business that soared with ambition but faced the stark reality of rapid expansion. Founded in 2015, Foxtrot's initial success was noteworthy, but the journey from a single retail location to 33, plus the leap into other markets, provides a cautionary tale about the perils of scaling up too fast.

We discuss Foxtrot's initial success, its expansion, and the diverse funding rounds it went through. The conversation also covers the company's focus on technology and the challenges of rapid growth, including the sustainability of their business model. Then we get to Foxtrot's merger with Dom's, leadership changes, and the eventual closure of the company, highlighting the financial struggles and the impact on employees and suppliers.

We hate to see any small food business close the doors, but it is important for us to take a look and understand what happened, so that we can avoid the same outcome.
