8DOL UK launches September 2018
8DOL is a grocery & convenience 28 minute delivery service for students, but also local community households/ offices. 8DOL is already running successfully in China with over 3 million users and a turnover of over £500 million a year, it has now become the world’s largest student grocery delivery APP.
Alfie Porter, 20 and Craig Moore, 29 will be responsible for bringing 8DOL into the UK, starting with Bournemouth for September-
Alfie spent 2017 based in China and took on a placement opportunity with 8DOL China. Alfie spent a lot of time with Gu Wen, (founder of 8DOL China) and his team and could see the potential of bringing the model to the UK/ Europe. Alfie pitched the idea to the directors of Solent Group (UK based) and began to form an agreement to bring 8DOL to the UK.
Craig has recently joined the business now that the APP has been developed, Craig will be Head of Operations and will implement the company’s ambitious growth plans. 8DOL’s first location will be Bournemouth for a September launch, with a further 8 locations lined up throughout 2019.
Craig – “The supermarket delivery sector is growing rapidly with many competitors attracting multi million pound investments, following on from deliveroo’s success in the restaurant / takeaway delivery sector. I was instantly drawn to this opportunity and unlike any of our other competitors we hold our own stock so we are price competitive with traditional retail stores. I can’t wait to see where we can take this business.”
Alfie – “I am really pleased to be this close to launching after a long year, the combination of the support from Gu Wen and his team, Solent Group’s knowledge of the sector and Craig’s passion puts us in a fantastic position.”
We have adopted the Challenge 25 policy. If a rider believes that you look under 25 years, you will be asked to prove that you are aged over 18 years.
Acceptable documents to prove your age are a valid passport, a UK or Ireland photo card driving licence, a UK military ID or any PASS-accredited proof-of-age card. All ID must have a photograph of you, include your date of birth and outline the validity period for the document. If our riders are unsure about the document’s authenticity/validity or are unfamiliar with its features, they may feel unable to accept them.
If you are unable to prove you are over the age of 18 with one of the above methods the alcohol portion of your order will not be delivered. This will be refunded for you.
