There’s nothing better than a food startup making waves — we are guaranteed to get delicious food in exciting new ways. From staying true to natural ingredients to finding new convenient routes to deliver meals, the intersection between food and technology is always one we are a fan of.
Hypepotamus has put together a list of established and emerging food-based startups in Atlanta that truly deliver. Our mouths are watering already.
Pre-order your fresh produce from the farmer’s market
It’s Sunday and the farmer’s market is packed. You make your way to your favorite vendor and he’s out of all of the produce on your list. Frustrating, right? Sourcify is a service that allows customers to pre-order fresh food and other goods from their farmers market. It’s available exclusively at the Westside Farmers Market right now. Pick it up before 1 p.m. and get on with your day. Easy as that.
Pop-up lunches as a perk
Who needs another soggy sandwich at their desk? Sifted, based out of the Atlanta Tech Village, delivers a pop-up dining experience inside offices for staff. Teams can enjoy culinary delights sourced from local ingredients by skilled chefs. Fans include startups, Eventbrite, Emma, Salesloft, YikYak, Lyft and more.
Fuel better by chewing your juice
Chuice aims to get you the nutrients you often skip because of your crazy schedule. The juice that you chew is a concoction of 35+ fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and herbs. Their unique process retains all of the nutrient and vitamin goodness right in one bottle. Genius.
Home-cooked meals delivered to your door
All-natural pops to cool you off
The King has been slinging pops for a few years now and his reign gets bigger and bigger. His brand is synonymous with natural ingredients, a fun team, and delicious popsicles. You can spot him all around town — from festivals to the window in Inman Park to a freezer at the Atlanta Tech Village. With every pop, the King of Pops serves it up with a side of authenticity.
Fresh prepared food delivered today
Running late at work and have no food at home? Trust us, we’ve been there. Real Meal Delivery fixes that oh so common issue by letting you order a freshly made meal that can be delivered between 5:30-7:30 p.m — on the same day. While their delivery area is currently limited, they offer a 30-day trial membership to new customers after placing they first order. They are set to take off, too, as one of the first startups inducted into Techstars Atlanta.
