Gregg Majewski, former CEO of Jimmy John's, announced today that he is launching Qmyfood, a mobile ordering platform which features location aware technology.
According to a company press release, Qmyfood grew out of Majewski's frustration as a restaurant operator with food waste generated by online and mobile ordering solutions, which rely on estimates of customer arrival times.
"We have no idea when our mobile customers are really going to show up. Qmyfood calculates for the restaurant exactly when an order should go into prep and lets the customer know exactly when their food is going to be ready. I also designed the technology with a focus on delivery," said Majewski in a company press release. "I want Qmyfood to be an order management system, helping the restaurant's staff manage the huge burden on-line orders become once they hit our restaurants. The current mobile solutions dump orders on us and don't care what happens after that. And not one of them knows the first thing about delivery. I intend to change that for the restaurant community."
In addition to his time as CEO of Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches, Majewski is founder of the better-burger concept Patty Burger in Cincinnati, Ohio, and casual-dining concept Jerseys Pizza & Grill in Barrington, Ill. Majewski is also a Jimmy John's franchisee and operates eight locations in Ohio and Alabama.
The company has self-funded to date and is seeking investors for its next round of funding to run full-scale beta testing and further development.
Majewski's co-inventor, Tom Straw, a 20-year veteran of the institutional capital markets will lead a JOBS Act equity fund-raise for the company.
