Fast2eat is taking back lunch breaks.
At busy times, fast food isn’t all too fast.
We’ve all been there. Picked what seemed to be the fastest line, became frustrated and hungry, and left with only a few minutes to gulf down our meal. Only to rush back to work — late.
Is it fair you’re spending your free time (which is limited) waiting in line? We all have better things to do, or at least other things we’d rather do.
Out of frustration, Carleton University Master students: Mauricio and Susana, thought of a solution to buy their coffee without being late for class.
What started as an amusing idea, quickly transformed into an award winning solution, getting second place award at the Ottawa 2012 Start-up Weekend and transforming a simple idea into Fast2eat, a web-based solution, that allows you to take back your lunch break.
Since that weekend, Fast2eat has been supported by: Venture Start, Lead To Win Program, Carleton Entrepreneurs, Invest Ottawa Portfolio, GrindspaceXL and NRC-IRAP. So diners can order online to bypass the line.
Sign up completely free, and see how easy it is to take back your lunch break.
Eat what you want, when you want, and save time by passing the line. It’s the ultimate solution for busy lunch breaks, in-between classes or busy schedules to stop wasting time, and do what matters.
