Blue Apron is now offering its meal kits on for same-day
or next-day delivery. 

The deal with Jet marks a departure from Blue Apron’s

Blue Apron’s shares soared 16% in pre-market trading on Monday
following news of the deal.

The meal-kit company’s stock has been hammered this year, losing
more than 70% of its value as it has reported massive
declines in customer subscriptions

Studies have shown that customers don’t like being locked into a
subscription, even though Blue Apron’s model allows customers to
cancel or skip deliveries. And more than 150 other meal-kit
companies are now competing with Blue Apron.
