Twenty Tables - A DC-Based, $6 Lunch App with Donations to Charities

Recommended Posts

Had never heard of them before, wondering if anyone has tried and has comments. $6 lunches that you pick up or eat in, with a portion of proceeds going to charity. Seems like a win win especially as it adds restaurants. You have to work or live near a participating restaurant to make it worthwhile.
 
They've been selected as a "Finalist Alternative" whatever that means, at SXSW.

Good news.

Local meal marketplace startup TwentyTables was upgraded from an alternate to a finalist for the SXSW pitch competition, meaning it is now one of 50 startups from around the globe that will take the big stage and pitch in front of the Hyper Connected Communities panel. TwentyTables, a recent 50 on Fire winner, is the only startup from D.C. in this year's competition and the first from the DMV in three years. Read more here.

This is apparently a for-profit company - does anyone know how they plan to make money?

TwentyTables is re-imagining the relationship between patrons, restaurants, and the food insecure.  TwentyTables first of its kind mobile marketplace of $6 fixed-cost lunches empowers the 50% of consumers who brown-bag their lunch everyday to rediscover the convenience of professionally prepared food. The predictability of our price point allows budget-conscious consumers to plan ahead, and restaurants to choose and prep profitable meals.  
 
But TwentyTables not only reopens restaurants to marginalized consumers and drives precious in-store foot traffic, we also help those who can't afford to feed themselves.  For every 20 meals purchased, TwentyTables donates 5, so that as we grow so does the benefit to communities around us.  And from city to city, as we scale, so will the impact we make.  
 
Affordable meals for patrons; increased business for restaurants; help feed the hungry.  Join our Community of Food!

Good news..........

TwentyTables Nabs SXSW Hardware

Local meal marketplace startup TwentyTables was pretty pumped to be selected as an alternate for the renowned SXSW Pitch competition. As the date came closer, a company dropped out, propelling the DMV's only 2019 entrant to a finalist spot in the Hyper-Connected Communities category for the main competition. Last night, TwentyTables had fortune on their side once again, winning the $1K cross-category award Best Bootstrap for having "done the most with the least." Read more here.
