goPuffis nearly in this same market, but we have excluded it as it is targeted towards delivery pre-packaged snacks and items from a convenience store, not from restaurants.
We also assumed "food delivery" to be ready-to-eat already-prepared food, not groceries or meal kits.
Our strategy was first to look for pre-existing lists of US on-demand food delivery startups in the US. As Crunchbase no longer offers its listings for free, we were unable to pull together a comprehensive listing using this popular startups database. After exploring several other avenues for comprehensive lists, we then realized there were no up-to-date lists available in the public domain.
Therefore, we then combed through several listings located in the media and through business publications, eliminating those that are now defunct or were not relevant to already-prepared food delivery. We also utilized some other business listing directories, though not specialized in startups, like Craft.co and Owler.
Only the project owner can select the next research path.
