H-E-B to buy Austin-based Favor

H-E-B announced on Thursday they are buying the Austin-based delivery service Favor.  

Favor Delivery was found in 2013 and has a presence in 50 cities across the lone star state. 

"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. 

H-E-B says the delivery service will continue to operate independently, but the retailer will retain Favor's employees. 

The terms of the transaction weren't released.
