In August of 2015 we made a big company announcement. We’d successfully raised a Series A funding round led by Foundry Group. Today, nearly two years later, and almost coincidentally, we have two new exciting and challenging announcements:
- We’ve successfully raised a $7M Series B.
- We’re coming back to Los Angeles.
Chewse’s $7M Series B
That’s right! We’ve secured a Series B to help Chewse grow to the next stage, and we’re ecstatic that Foundry Group has decided to lead this second funding round once again.
It’s an important milestone towards our mission of bringing your heart to work. We’ve seen companies treat people like machines for far too long. It’s time that we take a stand for employees being humans at work — with all the ups and downs of life, all the hardships and wins. You should no longer have to “check your true self” at the door. We think building community through food increases the interactions and likelihood of being known among your peers.
As companies face increasing challenges around retention and recruitment, Chewse is here to elevate culture through the kitchen.
We’re not only launching new markets with this financing — we’re also going deeper with the existing customers we love to solve their culture needs. You have been the heartbeat of the company, and we want to serve you and your cultures in more comprehensive ways.
We’re back, Los Angeles
When we left LA we promised we would come back with a better service. For the past two years that promise has been at the forefront of our priorities.
We assembled our own delivery and hosting services to ensure a delightful end-to-end experience for our customers. We made a brand commitment to working with high quality restaurant partners that would satisfy and excite every office. We enhanced our product offerings to make office managers’ lives easier. And we built a team of overachieving lovers.
With these tools in hand, we finally feel like we’re ready to bring our A game to every single office we serve. And we feel confident offices in Los Angeles will love our product tenfold this time around.
We embarked on this journey called Chewse six years ago, and although the road here has been less than easy, our passion and love for this project is as alive as it was six years ago.
Thank you to all of those who’ve supported us along the way. Our incredible team for bringing your hearts to work every single day. Our customers for welcoming us to your table and helping us improve our experience. Our restaurant partners for providing delightful experiences. Our investors for believing in our mission. And everyone else who’s been involved in making this company a success. Thank you! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
