Zesty, the next generation office catering company in San Francisco, today announced a $17M Series A funding round led by Index Ventures and joined by Founders Fund and returning investor Forerunner Ventures.
Danny Rimer of Index Ventures will join the Board of Directors. This follows the $3.7M in seed funding previously raised from Y Combinator, SV Angel and other angel investors. The company will use its funding to expand into new markets outside of San Francisco and more than double its current team of 30 over the next 12 months.
Co-founders David Langer and Chris Hollindale met studying mathematics together at Oxford University a decade ago and launched Zesty’s office catering service in January of 2014. Since then, Zesty has rapidly become the go-to option for companies looking to provide their San Francisco-based employees with delicious and healthy meals from their favorite restaurants. Zesty is now serving tens of thousands of meals every week to hundreds of companies, including Slack, Instacart, Twitch, Eventbrite and Teespring.
“We believe we are now the largest catering company by revenue in San Francisco,” said founder & CEO David Langer. “We are already on an eight-figure gross revenue run-rate, and we had a waiting list for the first six months of 2014 due to such overwhelming demand.”
