After long days at work overflowing with meetings, spreadsheets and endless email threads, sometimes the last thing you want to think about when you get home is what鈥檚 for聽dinner.聽Sure, you love cooking for yourself or hosting a dinner party 鈥 heck, you even whipped up that entire聽Thanksgiving spread聽last year 鈥 but once in awhile you wish you could take dinner back to a simpler time. A time when you got home聽from school or practice and supper聽was ready and on the table courtesy of mom or dad. Those glory聽days are making a comeback with the help of a new food delivery service聽that takes the聽鈥渙ld school鈥 approach to feeding you.


Susie聽is the first recurring food delivery service where actually placing orders for dinner isn鈥檛 necessary. The company delivers your meals to you automatically every day 鈥 or the days you select 鈥 at the right time and place based on your preferences. Susie wants to wipe out any聽worries about grocery shopping, restaurants or online ordering. Instead, every afternoon she decides what鈥檚 cooking that聽night.


The dinner service 鈥 currently in beta in the Bay Area and expanding to major US cities after its official launch 鈥 uses free-form texting to communicate with users to聽learn exactly how to serve them best. This simple communication makes the service incredibly easy to use and even easier to fit into your life. Users can聽provide feedback on meals or cancel a聽night鈥檚 dinner聽if something comes up 鈥 like wanting to take advantage of your homemaker nature and whip something together聽or head out for dinner with friends.


Susie聽serves meals at聽a fixed price of $13 per dish聽(including tip, delivery and tax). The dishes come from a variety of curated and vetted sources to ensure every meal is a good one.


The convenience of NOT having to think about聽dinner聽after a stressful day at the office is something to love. We鈥檙e all about the Uber-for-Whatever-I-Want economy that we鈥檙e living in, so we鈥檙e very happy to see someone bringing it to our nightly meals while still giving us the freedom to cancel when we feel like having cheese and wine with our pals or get聽the itch for delivery and a Netflix binge.

So Susie, lets just go ahead and assume that we鈥檙e going to be besties very, very soon, mmmkay?
