Crowdsourced Food Delivery Makes Your Order Arrive Even Faster
LA startup is creating an on-demand community to monetize errands
A new app called Foodida provides around the clock delivery from local fast food restaurants.
It offers two options: request a delivery or make one to another user. According to CEO Stefan Fraas, the app is a different take on crowdsourcing and is meant to foster a community that allows users to both order food or profit through delivery.
People join the community by providing their name, address, phone number, and credit card information, and then they can either choose to be a delivery driver (with a valid license and vehicle registration), or just order some food. The app shows nearby options and users can build a cart with combinations from different restaurants. The service is currently available in Santa Monica, Venice and the San Fernando Valley, and participating restaurants include McDonalds, Taco Bell, Wendy’s, KFC and Burger King.
