Wisco-made business booming with online eats
Several years ago a few entrepreneurs/UW-Madison graduates came up with an online business idea allowing people to order food from multiple restaurants through a single website. While they weren’t the first people to come up this idea, founders Matt Howard, Alex Wyler, and Eric Martell have grown their company – EatStreet – into a booming endeavor. According to an article recently posted at TechCrunch.com the company had reportedly raised over $2 Million about a year ago, and while Howard didn’t disclose how much profit the company has made, he did state that revenue has almost tripled. On top of that, the company has recently raised another $6 million in funding. The founders have already began expanding into more cities and plan to have over 15,000 restaurants in 150 cities covered by year’s end. Eau Claire was one of the first cities to get the EatStreet treatment.
