Foodjunky expands across U.S. with help of $750K seed round

Foodjunky launched as a small startup with grand ambitions. Now it's starting to realize them.

The downtown Detroit-based company, a product of the Bizdom accelerator, helps simplify the food ordering system online. It landed a $750,000 seed round earlier this year and is using that money to help grow its presence across the U.S. Last year it was in nine states. Today it's in 100 cities across 20 states, and growing.

"We are adding 50 restaurants a day," says Travis O Johnson, co-founder & CEO of foodjunky. "Most of them are independents, but there are chains as well."

The nearly 2-year-old company's platform helps large groups place restaurant orders with a simple process that eliminates errors and streamlines food delivery. Watch a video where Foodjunky aptly describes its service here.

Foodjunky doesn't charge restaurants for its service, which is why Johnson expects to be in all 50 states by next year while also launching a new version of the startup’s platform.

"We are imminently releasing Verison 3.0 in the next 4-6 weeks," Johnson says. "It will have more functionality and a whole new look."

Foodjunky currently employs a team of 10 employees. It has hired three people in customer service and marketing over the last year and is looking to hire another three. That team is also working to raise a seven-figure Series A by next year.
