St. Louis-based Schnucks is unveiling its Deli Order Ahead service via its Schnucks Rewards app. The service, which is available at 18 locations, allows consumers to place their deli orders before leaving for the store.

“Deli Order Ahead is a simple and convenient lunch or dinner solution for our busy, on-the-go customers,” says Ted Schnuck, Schnucks vice president of marketing. “This service is designed to offer even more convenience to our customers and reduce their wait time.”

To help round out customers’ meals, 14 of the 18 stores will also offer prepared foods via Deli Order Ahead and kiosk ordering.

The service is available at 15 Missouri locations and one Illinois store — all of which are in the St. Louis area — as well as two stores in Indiana.
