Lee and Maria’s Delivery saves 5 hours every day with Routific

Lee and Maria's is a family-run farm market. Since 1978, they’ve been growing tomatoes, corn, melons and more than a dozen different fruits and vegetables across 30 acres of land. Today, they deliver that produce to more than 300 homes across southwestern Ontario.

Business Challenges

Lee and Maria’s customers had to drive to the market in Kingsville, Ontario to pick up their produce, or visit the local farmer’s markets where Lee and Maria’s set up a stall. Co-owner Kevin Black decided to start a home delivery service, and bring fresh farm produce straight to his customers' doorsteps. But the logistics of transporting perishables to hundreds of homes wasn’t easy to figure out and coordinate.

Solution

Kevin was spending two hours every day trying to manually plan his delivery routes. With Routific, it now takes him just 1-2 minutes to plan his routes.

“Everything about our business depends on time," he said. "Routific shows us the fastest, most efficient way to make all our deliveries.”
