What Is Snackpass

It’s a great time to join Snackpass!  

We are building a way to buy anything with friends, starting with restaurant takeout on college campuses.  Students use Snackpass to order ahead at local restaurants, skip the line and get discounts with their friends. After every purchase, you get a reward point for yourself and a bonus point to send to a friend.

We're helping restaurants transition to digital and contactless to thrive in a post COVID world where takeout is a core pillar of every restaurant. 
We have had success from the very beginning. The semester we launched, over 80% of Yale student body started using Snackpass to order food.  We’ve repeated our success at multiple campuses (Brown, Berkeley, Michigan, Dartmouth) and are looking to expand to 100 campuses, and then radiate into surrounding cities.
We're looking for creative and ambitious people to join our team! We'd love to talk with you.
Snackpass is a startup backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Y Combinator, General Catalyst and First Round Capital, the same firms who invested in Square, Uber and Airbnb.
