What do we do?

Zesty is re-inventing the way companies serve food. We use serious technology to let every startup provide exceptional, healthy food like Google does. We’re just two years old and we already serve hundreds of companies in the Bay Area, including names you know like GitHub, Heroku and Twitch.

Our mission is to improve the health of humanity and we are now feeding healthier food to thousands of people every day. Zesty is backed by Y Combinator and other top Silicon Valley investors.

Why join us?

Zesty is re-inventing the way companies serve food. We use serious technology to let every startup provide exceptional, healthy food like Google does. We’re just two years old and we already serve hundreds of companies in the Bay Area, including names you know like GitHub, Heroku and Twitch.

We are one of YC's fastest growing companies ever - we grew from $0 to $10m in revenue faster than Uber did.

Technical challenges

Every day, Zesty has to figure out exactly the right set of meals to order for each company, balancing variety, cost, health, dietary restrictions, and automatically learning from individual employee feedback. Then, we need to get thousands of meals from a distributed network of restaurants to hundreds of startups, all before lunch-time, using crowd-sourced transportation. This is a massive logistics and constraint satisfaction problem and we’re building deep technology that will let us do it better than anyone.
