SXSW Startup: FanFood Means You Spend More Time In Your Seat and Less Time Waiting In Line
With the big game happening tomorrow whether you’re an Eagles fan or a Patriots fan, deciding when to go to the bathroom is going to be tough. No one wants to miss any of the action when watching a big game at home, but imagine watching the big game in the stands.
When do you decide to go get some more nachos or a cheeseburger? Do you go during an “intermission”? Do you go during halftime? If you do, you run the risk of waiting in a really long line and still missing part of the game getting back to your seat. If there was a way to order from your seat it would save time and heartache. Luckily there is.
Chicago is the reigning king of food convenience startups. Grubhub was launched from Chicago and the same holds true for food convenience in professional sports stadiums, with FanFood.
FanFood helps fans have an amazingly good time by ensuring they don’t miss any of the action when they’re hungry. FanFood let’s users easily order food from their seat using their app, from the closest concession stand. Then, the food is delivered right to them without any need to wait in a long line and miss that amazing punt return, home run hit or slap shot from center ice. FanFood helps stadiums build amazing experiences by taking care of the fans first.
