OPIE Grocery Stations
The future of the grocery is pulling up… in the drive-thru. Tyler Sones is co-founder and Vice President of OPIE Grocery Stations, leading a team building ultra-fast drive-thru grocery stores.
With a combination of technology and a unique picking process, OPIE can pick 15 item orders in under two minutes – which means no pick-up slots, fees, or order minimums – customers pull up and get what they need. OPIE offers customers over 5,000 items, including fresh produce, easy dinner meal kits, beer and wine, and an extensive selection of ice cream.
Tyler was born in Santa Ana, California, and raised in Wyoming. When he’s not working on his bagging technique, he’s cheering on his Minnesota Vikings.
