DETROIT – The days of clunky, time consuming group food ordering is about to meet its demise, thanks to foodjunky. The online food ordering platform foodjunky comes to downtown Detroit’s growing tech corridor from Chicago, where the company was originally launched, to join Bizdom, a nonprofit entrepreneurship accelerator for digital start-ups in the city.

“We are excited about launching our business in downtown Detroit, which is fast becoming one of the most exciting high tech corridors in the nation,” said foodjunky co-founder and CEO Travis Johnson. “The response we’ve received from local restaurants and consumers so far has been overwhelming, and the support Bizdom provides will enable us to grow and thrive here.”

The mobile-friendly website makes ordering and delivery simple by allowing the creation of group orders through proprietary technological solutions.

“Our goal is to turn group ordering into a pleasant and enjoyable experience for both our customers and the restaurants in our network,” said Johnson. “It’s an undertaking to collect food orders for a large group. At the same time, it’s challenging for restaurants to take the orders over the phone – often resulting in errors. foodjunky uses technology to simplify the group food ordering process, making the process more efficient for restaurants and consumers alike while making sure everyone gets exactly what they ordered.”

Foodjunky launched its service with 26 restaurants and is adding numerous food establishments each week.

“We saw foodjunky as a very interesting concept,” said Ross Sanders, CEO of Bizdom.  “Online group ordering is still a difficult and cumbersome process and foodjunky’s platform automates the process making it a better, quicker and more accurate experience.”

About The Woodward Spine

The Woodward Spine was the brainchild of Michael Fossano and Jeffrey Buck, two Royal Oak, Mich. natives who met nearly 10 years ago while attending the now-defunct George A. Dondero High School. It seemed fitting for the two Wayne State University alums to craft an outlet to help continually refine their writing skills, while also serving as a trusted source of information for the metro Detroit community. The Woodward Spine aims to inform its readers about relevant news and events through creative and informative posts not only by Mike and Jeff, but other upstanding citizens as well who are driven and proficient in these core areas: news, opinion, entertainment, history, sports and development. The Woodward Spine serves the tri-county metro Detroit area, however concentrating mainly on the communities that lie along the Woodward corridor.
