Order Mapper Raises $550K Led By Vegas Tech Fund, So You Can Order Pizza (And Eventually More) From Anywhere
24 Jan, 2013
The company’s flagship product is Order Pizza, an app that allows users to sequence pizza from any pizzeria that we choose. The app submits orders automatically, around phone call, email, fax, or website (depending on what a grill accepts). Co-founder and CEO Jim Bricker told me around email that humans usually step in when an sequence doesn’t go through. For example, if someone tries to sequence from a pizzeria that doesn’t broach to them, Order Mapper will content a patron to ask if it’s fine to sequence from Pizza Hut or Domino’s.
Order Pizza has already delivered orders to 30 percent of a pizzerias in a U.S. It doesn’t need to have any kind of preexisting attribute to place an order, though Bricker pronounced a association is operative with a tip 50 bondage to supplement full menus. Apparently a biggest plea is doing “rush times like Friday nights and during a Super Bowl,” though Bricker combined that a app indeed helps pizzerias take some-more orders, given they don’t have to persevere as many worker time to “sitting on a phone.”
The association also offers an Order Beer app in Dallas (it’s a connoisseur of a Dallas-based Tech Wildcatters incubator). Bricker pronounced he skeleton to enhance a height to embody flowers, massage, and other forms of food, and he wants to launch internationally.
Order Mapper was founded in 2009, and it was partial of the initial organisation of startups corroborated by 500 Startups’ Twilio Micro-Fund behind in 2010. When we asked because a association hasn’t lifted a poignant seed turn before this, Bricker said:
We started when people still didn’t know what apps were and had problem lifting income from normal investors. We survived a many severe proviso of rising a startup and investors are now fervent to assistance move a prophesy of Order Mapper to a masses.
In further to Vegas Tech Fund (whose partners embody Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh), Bricker pronounced a series of angels invested in a round.
