Ben & Vini, ChatFood co-founders

As sons of local business owners themselves, Ben & Vini have long felt that the best technology is often out of reach for, or even used against, homegrown businesses. Tech shouldn’t block their ability to grow in a sustainable way, and they deserve to be rewarded for their hard work.

After a discussion with the owner of their favorite pizza place, they decided to create ChatFood. Because of convenient but unsustainable on-demand technology, her loyal customers stopped ordering direct, and now ordered through third-party platforms. This entrepreneur was worried that her years of hard work were vanishing, as she now had little choice but to pay huge commissions on orders from her loyal customers. It was time to help her (and many others) take back control.

Today, a few short years later, the movement they started together is essential to thousands of restaurants, empowering them to not only survive, but thrive, in an increasingly digital world.
