Chewbox is a venture-backed startup delivering a groundbreaking on-schedule software-as-a-service (SaaS) that enables food service companies and their customers to exponentially decrease the cost of manufacturing, distributing, and purchasing meals.
Founded by tech entrepreneurs Kim Gaston and Solomon Acosta in 2020, and based in the South Central Los Angeles community of Watts, Chewbox works in partnership with world-class culinary minds to optimize food services with a software platform that works from purveyor to customer.
The result is that high quality meals, and the gig and creator economies are more accessible. Their software helps F&B vendors, restaurateurs, and commissaries close the delta of supply and demand, minimizing waste, optimizing labor, and profit in ways that are simply impossible for on-demand food services.
Their model enables meals that have a walk-in price of $15 at restaurants, and $25-30 on meal delivery sites to be made and delivered for $9.
They are a team of entrepreneurs, developers, creatives, and disruptors who strive to use technology as a tool of social change. At Chewbox, they are building an ecosystem that fosters access and opportunity.
There are several game changing differentiators Chewbox software makes possible for the food services ecosystem. First, all meals processed through the Chewbox app are on-schedule, rather than on-demand. Most food services are predicated on an on-demand methodology that has persisted for hundreds of years due to antiquated assumptions and technologies.
An on-demand methodology ultimately minimizes profits and optimizes costs to the consumer. Empowering consumers to schedule meals days, weeks, even months in advance, and charging just prior to delivery, ghost kitchens using the software can eliminate the supply-and-demand-related guessing game that plagues restaurants, purveyors, and meal delivery services worldwide. Ultimately, Chewbox software enables ghost kitchens and meal delivery services to significantly cut costs, adopting both a dynamic operations and 1-to-many delivery model.
