Before starting caterfox, we both worked in engineering, sales, and marketing for large corporations. Though these were stable jobs that gave us extensive experience in the business and tech worlds, as long time Austinites we found ourselves bit by the entrepreneurial bug that drives this city. After discussing our own business aspirations in between long hours in the office and during lunch breaks, we finally decided to give it a try.
Our goal is to bring technology solutions to the food space. In the past few years, Austin has become a huge foodie hub, with the boom in popularity of food trucks and expansion of localized restaurants. As we began to explore this growing industry, we noticed there are issues that many in the culinary space face everyday. Most issues stem from the inability to perform administrative tasks anywhere but your physical workspace. As we spoke with more chefs and their staff, we learned about the challenges this created. Even simple tasks, like editing a catering order, had to be done manually. With our experience, we knew we could translate these issues into solutions.
We developed caterfox software to serve as the go-between for the customer and the restaurant. By creating an automated, mobile, and easy to use dashboard, businesses can cater to all of their customers’ needs, beyond just their food order. caterfox is our solution to support the local and growing food scene in Austin. We are fulfilled by being able to offer solutions that benefit this industry, and are excited to continue this entrepreneurial adventure.
