We're committed to solving food transportation on campus.
We want to radically rethink food delivery.
Since 2018, Fastplate has been connecting students to their favorite restaurants and peers. We are committed to building the most robust platform for food delivery at college, an environment unlike any other in terms of demographic trends.
Research shows that 80% of people don't change food delivery apps once they pick their favorite platform.1 Yet, college students have relatively cumbersome and slow platforms when it comes to ordering food delivery.
Fastplate sends the campus and local food you already love, directly to your dorm room. We can do this because students deliver your order, not drivers.
No minimum order fees, no hidden service charges, and no need to run outside to call your lost driver.
The idea of students delivering food to other students is not a novel idea. But achieving this ultimate goal requires a comprehensive solution in marketing, student recruitment, technology, design, and partnerships. This isn't easy, and nobody has been able to do it on a wide-scale yet.
As students ourselves, we understand what sort of features appeal to our generation and make a service like this enticing. And as developers and designers, we execute that vision.
As CEO, Eric focuses on making Fastplate as simple and pleasant as possible. He handles the
design and strategy of Fastplate in addition to securing partnerships with our payment
and couriers to make Fastplate run smoothly.
