Grocery delivery service coming August

A new business entitled, Fast Lane Grocery Delivery, is coming to Escambia County in August. A grocery delivery service, Steven F. Lane, founder of the business, is excited to serve the community in this unique capacity. “The idea originated 4 years ago, I was working in Fort Walton at AMI kids Emerald Coast. We always had events going on and it was hard for me to get snacks and meals for them because we were always on the go. Then I got married and had kids and realized I didn’t have enough time to do anything,” said Lane. “I think if I can take this task on and give this back to the family then we all win because time we do not get back,” shared Lane.
The online shopping service is available 6 days a week and is easily accessed online at fastlanegrocery.com. “The website is user friendly if you don’t want to use that then you can call or text. The basic necessities are on the website, but we will get other items as well,” said Lane. From lumber and feed to groceries and holiday shopping, Lane said that his main focus is the people. “I am trying to make everyone’s lives here easier. I have been helping multiple communities and I haven’t helped home yet. I wanted to come back to help,” said Lane. Living in Brewton for 10 years, Lane attended Brewton Elementary School until 1996. Living in various places throughout the country, Lane has worked with at risk youth and poverty stricken families. Now, he hopes to help the community that shaped him in his early years. “We’re catering to everyone’s needs. My first target is the senior citizen. I want to do seminars to show them how to online shop. It is not fair that they can’t get the things they need,” said Lane. Lane also plans to donate 10 percent of his earnings to the NAACP every month.
“Every month I am going to donate 10 percent so they can start a program to help black and brown people and those struggling with generational poverty,” said Lane.
