food delivery

Lunch can be a surprisingly inefficient time of day for office workers, or at least for the restaurants that serve them. In an era when it is easy for everyone to order a meal and have it delivered, a lot of workers choose that option. And while everyone doesn’t order from the same restaurant, there is certainly a lot of overlap, and therefore the possibility for many redundant trips.

It was that observation that prompted the start of Foodsby in 2012, when the firm launched in Minneapolis to build a better delivery experience. The company is far from the only delivery aggregator in the game and they aren’t the best-known – DoorDash, Grubhub, Postmates and Uber Eats all have bigger public profiles, and three-quarters of them were founded and are headquartered in San Francisco, the U.S. city where tech buzz is built most of the time. But Foodsby comes into the delivery game a slightly different angle than its compatriots – and with a different outlook on improving the lunch experience.

In short, the service functions by allowing a lunch-seeking worker to pre-order a meal from a restaurant in its network. Choices of eateries can vary among Foodsby’s 17 cities. Its national restaurant partners include TGI Fridays, Smashburger, Noodles World Kitchen, Famous Dave’s, Schlotzky’s and McAlister’s Deli.
