Foodsby, the national lunch ordering and delivery enablement platform that connects office professionals with local and national restaurants, has launched its service in the San Diego market. San Diego is the 17th major U.S. market served by Foodsby, and the first Foodsby market anywhere in the state of California.
Participating Foodsby restaurants in San Diego include House of Bites, P.F. Chang’s, Lemonade, Chick-Fil-A, On The Border, Wich Addiction, Opera Patisserie and Marketplace Grille. National restaurant partners for Foodsby include TGI Fridays, Corner Bakery, SmashBurger, Noodles World Kitchen, Famous Dave’s, Schlotzky’s, Moe’s Southwest Grill and McAlister’s Deli.
Unlike competitors such as DoorDash, Uber Eats and ezCater, Foodsby generates revenue for restaurants before their doors are open each day with sales during off-peak hours. Foodsby restaurant partners earn an average of $4,000 per month – average sale is $168 per Foodsby delivery, and an average of 5,000 consumers see a restaurant’s logo weekly. What’s more, Foodsby’s top 50 restaurant partners see an average $75,000 annual sales increase.
Founded in 2012 and now a trusted partner to thousands of office buildings and restaurants in 17 major markets across the U.S., Foodsby enables busy employees in office buildings to order lunch online from local restaurants and get it delivered for $1.99 – with no tipping, no minimum and no hidden fees. Last August, Foodsby secured $13.5 million in Series B funding, bringing total funding to $21 million for market expansion and talent investment.
Busy office professionals in participating office buildings place orders online or from the Foodsby mobile app with local restaurants, orders are managed and aggregated via Foodsby.com, and the restaurant makes and delivers all of the meals at once.
“We’re thrilled to partner with restaurants in San Diego as we expand Foodsby’s footprint across the West Coast,” says Ben Cattoor, CEO of Foodsby. “We’re working directly with San Diego restaurants to deliver what they desire most – a hungry, eager crowd of office workers. The best part of our system for restaurants is that restaurant owners and managers work with our team to set the delivery radius, menu items, number of drops on route, first drop time and cut-off time. In short, Foodsby puts restaurants in control of their office lunch delivery business.”
