150+ years of combined restaurant tech experience
In 2018, a team of ex-Grubhub leadership and restaurant tech veterans (from Seamless, Ritual, etc.) came together in the garage at Northwestern University. Together, they set out to test a unique data-centered approach with a few local restaurants in Evanston, IL.
These restaurants saw massive growth as they converted one-off customers into long-term regulars with increased order sizes and greater lifetime values. We knew we had something that could help local restaurants nationwide.
And thus, Captain was born.
