You work in an office and the board meeting goes through lunch.
What do you do? Order a pizza? Send an intern out for sandwiches? Starve?
Starting today, you fire up Peach, a Seattle-based lunch delivery service.
Once your office is signed up, every morning, Peach sends a text message at 9:30 a.m. with a link to the "Lunch of the Day" - provided by local restaurants. Then, members have an hour and a half (9:30-11 a.m.) to place an order by responding with a "yes" text or by ordering online. At lunchtime (between 12 and 12:30 p.m.), the food will show up to a pre-determined location with no delivery fee.
So far, the growing list of participating restaurants include New York on Rye, Hanna Garden, Deli Llama, Rigoberto's, and The Taco Stand - yes, tacos on demand.
The first expansion outside of Seattle for the startup, Peach was founded by Ex-Amazon engineer Nishant Singh and former Amazon colleagues Denis Bellavance and Chenyu Wang. The company, which raised $2.7 million in July in funding, makes money by sharing revenue with partnering restaurants.
With loads of food delivery competition out there from companies like Caviar, Lish, SpoonRocket, and Munchery, Peach separates itself by delivering only to office locations with 50 or more users.
