Foodsby was started in 2012 to get rid of the constant overlap of trips for restaurants that deliver to businesses. Foodsby has taken a different approach than the better-known restaurant delivery services like DoorDash, or GrubHub. Foodsby is currently in 17 cities and allows people to pre-order a meal from a restaurant in its network.
Once ordered, Foodsby will send the orders to the restaurants to be grouped together and delivered all at once. The restaurants make the actual delivery, Foodsby just handles the order aggregation. The ultimate goal of this company is to keep costs down. The service is free to join for businesses and for restaurants. This company focuses on consumer food delivery at a B2B level. This will reduce the challenge of multiple trips for restaurants and also lighten the distractions on businesses that have delivery drivers coming every 10 or so minutes with another delivery during lunchtime.
CEO Ben Cattoor said, “Foodsby aims to work with businesses and create a better experience where lunch shows up once or twice in an afternoon, not 30 or 40 times, and the worker pays a very low delivery fee and has certainty.” Foodsby is expanding slowly but it seems like slow is better for this market. The have recently opened their 17th location in San Diego and plan to keep expanding.
Overall, this is a great concept for many businesses and restaurants. It reduces waste of both time and resources. Cattoor says the company believes “lunch should be efficient, affordable and delightful for everyone, and we look forward to working with new partners in the area to bring that experience to as many people as possible.” This is a great start and we will have to keep an eye out for Foodsby in our area in the future.
