Ten-year-old grocery delivery startup Good Eggs has moved its operations from San Francisco to Oakland, the SF Business Times reports. As Nosh noted back in 2013, the company differs from competitors like Safeway or Instacart, as it primarily works with local producers and farmers, as opposed to picking and choosing items for customers from retail shelves. The company opened a huge warehouse at 2000 Maritime St. in Oakland in 2020, and now it says that it’s moved its headquarters and executive offices there, as well.
