Summary The purpose of this case study is to let the readers identify the key success factors of the French grocery retail companies' drive-through model. A case study approach is used to describe clearly issues confronting Intermarché, the third largest French grocery retail company, to the important and fast drive-in model development. The large French grocery retailers are investing heavily in the 'click and drive' format in order to avoid having to make home deliveries and bear the substantial costs associated with the 'last mile'. Investing in selected drive-in locations is a cheaper way for them to expand their area of coverage than investing in new outlets
