Jokr, the grocery and retail delivery upstart, notched $170 million in investment through a Series A funding round that was headed up by Tiger Global Management, Balderton Capital and GGV Capital.

The new offering will harness mobile kitchens working in conjunction with the Pennsylvania firm’s micro-fulfillment hubs, letting clients buy meals alongside other essentials and have them quickly delivered for a flat charge. “Gopuff leverages both its own recipes and ingredients from local partners to offer a mix of healthy and indulgent menu items, including hot, freshly prepared pizza, chicken tenders, salads, fresh brewed coffee and matcha, breakfast sandwiches and more for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night,” according to an announcement.
