Hot off the presses!
The Duke Chronicle in Durham, NC just published an article about BringMeThat and our connection to the Triangle Startup Factory:
So far, 1459 restaurants in North Carolina are listed on the BringMeThat website. 80 are specific to Durham, including chains as well as local staples like Parker & Otis and Ninth Street Bakery. In addition to full menus, BringMeThat also lists minimum order amounts, delivery fees and notes such as “catering only.” [...]
The draw of online ordering is mostly to save the time it takes to make a full phone call, which often involves being put on hold. Liang also noted that the website saves customer preferences to make future ordering easier. (The Duke Chronicle)
Elliot over at the fantastic eatRaleigh blog posted a review of BringMeThat after ordering Capital Creations through our site. A very thorough and fair write-up:
When first logging into the site I was delighted to see a clean and cool design. Some of the other delivery service websites look like they were designed by middle school computer classes [...] The delivery time was as promised, clocking in at around 40 minutes. Everything was well packaged and still warm [...]
Raleigh will continue to grow, and with it many more homebodies and couch potatoes will be in search of great food at the convenience of Bring Me That. – (eatRaleigh)
In June, BringMeThat completed its session at the Triangle Startup Factory. The culmination was Paradoxos — a two-day festival in Durham spotlighting entrepreneurship and technology. On the first day of the festival, “pitch day,” BringMeThat CEO Jason Liang explained the company to an audience of investors and Media. Beforehand, co-founder Michael LaMarca sat down for an interview with ExitEvent.
“The community here has really been amazing,” LaMarca said. “It’s been great to be part of Durham’s startup scene. With it only being a few years old, it’s like being part of something ground level.”
And if Paradoxos turns out like its organizers hope, Durham won’t be ground level for much longer. – (ExitEvent)
Also, a shout-out to Nanci O, who we met at Paradoxos and who mentioned us on her great blog about hip-hop in the Southeast.
