I’m the Director of Business Development
What’s your favorite part of your job?
Creating a memorable experience for our clients and helping vendors grow their businesses.
What’s an accomplishment you’ve had at FoodtoEat that you’re really proud of?
Deepti (our founder) was asked to keynote an event called “Agents of Change” for IIDA, an architecture firm, at Lincoln Center. We also coordinated the catering through one of our local food vendors, Jaa Dijo Dom. At the event, Charles Chipengule, the owner of Jaa Dijo Dom, told me that it was surreal to be catering Lincoln Center, as it wasn’t long ago that he would be waiting here during the day with the homeless for his wife to pick him up after he got off of his shift as a dishwasher. And today he was catering Lincoln Center. Chills! That’s why we do what we do.
What’s something you worked on recently OR are working on right now that you’re excited about?
Our new partnership with Warby Parker! They’re so appreciative of the fact that our service helps them to streamline the food ordering process and the team is coming together to experience all kinds of new cuisines. As a company they have such a great mission; it’s so exciting to be feeding them!
