We currently deliver to top companies in SF (from Google and Salesforce to Airbnb and Pinterest), and we are slated to launch three more cities over the next year. Although we are a small team, we’re growing fast, and have been featured in Forbes and raised money from First Round Capital, SV Angel and other top e-commerce investors (including early investors in Pinterest, Refinery29, Cuyana and The RealReal).
