Pop Up Grocer founder Emily Schildt on rethinking the grocery experience

Read more

It took a trip to London for Emily Schildt to realize that American grocery stores could do better.

"I came back personally really yearning for a grocery store experience like I had there," she said on the Modern Retail Podcast. "They were just beautiful spaces in which to shop -- gorgeous products, but really thoughtful display and design."

Last year Schildt founded Pop Up Grocer, a traveling showcase of a few hundred products that sets up in U.S. cities for a month at a time. It had four locations to date; the next one opens in Brooklyn this October.

Many of the goods, like cauliflower crust, are available at grocery stores already, but Schildt argues that they're buried in a mass of other items. Since the 90s, the average grocery store's number of items has mushroomed from 7,000 to between 40,000 and 50,000, according to a recent book on the topic.

"It's a lot of cold outreach," she said about how she gets products that are worth the spotlight, many of which she finds on Instagram. A place at Pop Up Grocer helps show off brands that might otherwise remain obscure or have trouble selling online. "I think people find starting their own business so hard if they don't have all of the connections. And it's hard even if you do," Schildt said.

Schildt talked about the company's move into ecommerce, plans to raise outside capital and her favorite place to shop for food in Paris.

Emily Schildt of Pop Up Grocer

Read more

Emily Schildt’s appetite for life has created the foundation for a life well-lived—and well-traveled. Emily is the founder of Pop Up Grocer, a traveling grocery store that showcases hundreds of products from over 150 innovative food, beverage, home, pet, and body care brands. Since the shop’s inception, Emily has brought Pop Up Grocer around the country, and in turn, has been able to fuse her love for food, discovery, and storytelling to create a one-of-a-kind destination. But as the world became upended by COVID-19, Emily was forced to assess her relationship with food, and the important role Pop Up Grocer can play in bringing value to her community, both online and off. Naturally, storytelling has played a role in this, and in this interview, Emily kindly shared more of her own story, what living and working on the road has been like, and the questions she hopes people ask her more often. This episode also opens with a story contributed by Olivia Gossett Cooper of Today We Will and Silvr.

NOTE: This interview was recorded in April 2020. We are conscious of the current state of the world, but we hope this episode gives you a bit of respite and inspiration. Thank you for listening!

108 Culling Through the Clutter with Emily Schildt, founder of Pop-Up Grocer

Read more

The grocery store model hasn’t adapted with how people shop. Traditional big box stores stock up on everything under the sun and rely on small margins based for big cart sizes. With traditional grocery stores struggling and US consumers being slow to adopt online grocery, Emily Schildt saw an opportunity to prioritize discovery over convenience as a way to help people find brands they actually love.

Pop-up Grocer is a highly curated 30-day activation featuring grocery brands that get an A+ for innovation, nutrition, and design. Emily has thoughtfully positioned Pop-Up Grocer to be an exciting space that leaves people wanting more. Just ahead of their Venice launch on February 7, she is sharing the careful balance between curation and discovery, the importance of location, and the paths envisions for Pop-Up Grocer in the future.

"How To Freelance With Small Brands & The Power Of “No, But…” With Emily Schildt "

Read more

On today’s show, I talk to Emily Schildt, a brand communications and marketing consultant based in New York City. If you’re looking for news you can use, this episode is beyond inspiring and useful for anyone considering doing any sort of brand consulting. Emily is one of the most organized, disciplined humans I’ve ever met. She’s on top of her finances, her daily routine, and her client protocol, and somehow, she makes time for multiple large-scale passion projects on the side. On top of all of that, she also manages to be a beacon of work/life balance (IMO, at least). She’s basically who I want to be when I grow up, even if we’re like the same age.

Emily and I actually met when I was on the hunt for freelance friends. A mutual friend connected us, and from the get-go, Emily has been so amazingly helpful to me. In the beginning, I’d shoot her emails with the most basic questions, and this angel of a person patiently answered all of them and even threw in pep talks when I needed them. She’s a gem. On the pod, we talk about:

  • Landing on your feet after a layoff

  • What it means to be a “starter” vs. someone who stays on board for long-term execution

  • The power of “no, but…” when you’re a freelancer

Grab a pen and paper, or open the notes app on your iPhone or something, because you’re definitely going to want to take notes.
