Goodybag (YC W16) Simplifies Catering for Enterprises


Anyone who has used a catering service for meetings or corporate gatherings can explain how frustrating the entire process is. What seems like a simple task actually involves searching through various vendors, determining dietary restrictions, planning logistics, and invoicing the order.

Goodybag is a company launching out of our Winter 2016 class that streamlines the corporate meal-ordering process. Anyone can log onto the site and browse through local caterers before ordering online. In addition to ease of use, Goodybag also offers live customer support. Unlike other on-demand food delivery services, Goodybag does not actually deliver anything. Rather, it is a self-serve marketplace that allows companies to compare and book meals for specific events. Because of this, Goodybag can scale rapidly without being lost in unit economics.

The three behind Goodybag are Jay Panchal, Om Panchal, and Jag Santha. Jay Panchal and Jag Santha met in college at Georgia Institute of Technology while studying Systems Engineering. Om Panchal, Jay's brother, studied Biology at Southwestern University. 

Goodybag has done over $5.5M in orders from just the Austin, Houston, Seattle, and Nashville area.
