In a deal that is expected to propel H-E-B in the home grocery delivery world, the food retail giant has announced the acquisition of Favor Delivery.

The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Favor will continue to operate independently as a separate brand, H-E-B said. All of Favor's employees and runners will be retained.

"I am thrilled to have H-E-B join forces with another well respected and innovative Texas company," H-E-B's Chief Operating Officer Martin Otto said in a press release.

Founded in 2013, Favor has quickly expanded its presence to 50 cities across the state of Texas.
