Three weeks after completing their term at The Startup Factory, BringMeThat co-founders Michael LaMarca and Jason Liang moved their company to New York City.

It was a business decision, said Liang, and the company moved because it was important to start meeting with their network of contacts in New York.

The company, still in its infancy, was launched in New York City, and completed the Spring 2013 term in Durham-based The Startup Factory, pitching at Paradoxos in June. The company moved all operations back to New York City less than a month later.

BringMeThat, which provides an online ordering platform for a wide spectrum of local restaurants, is attempting to be one of the first companies to the market in what will almost certainly be a crowded industry: location-based delivery service.

The early initial traction and expertise of the founding team were reasons the company was selected into The Startup Factory’s Spring 2013 term.

Since beginning their work in Durham, BringMeThat has expanded to serve ten states. North Carolina was their second state in which the company offered their online ordering platform to restaurants and consumers (Ohio was the first).

“Our time in North Carolina was awesome,” said Liang in an exclusive interview, describing the importance of connecting with the Triangle’s top e-commerce executives and successful entrepreneurs.

The time in The Startup Factory, said Liang, allowed the young company to meet “almost all of the key stakeholders that we needed to meet in order to have success with our company.”

The company processes payment for menu items through their web platform, and generates revenue by charging a slight fee to the consumer. Restaurants that work directly with BringMeThat can elect to absorb the cost that would customarily be passed on to the consumer, if they opt in to that agreement, said Liang.

“We have about 1,500 restaurants,” said Liang, “and we’ve started to partner with some of the major food delivery services.” For example, said Liang, the company is partnering with Doorstep Delivery, the largest national provider of delivery services.

Several thousand orders have been placed in North Carolina, said Liang, representing a wide geographic diversity across the state.

The company is up to six employees, one of whom remains based in North Carolina, with plans to expand into other states. The company does not plan an office in North Carolina, said Liang, “but going forward, we’re always going to have a great network in the Triangle.”
