The Snapchat for Snacks on Campus

  1. Snackpass is a platform that focuses on mobile order pickup at local restaurants.
    Snackpass is a new app that brings hungry college students closer to their favorite nearby restaurants with some discounts. And its arrival is timely: 59 percent of food orders from millennials are for takeout, according to a report by Technomic. This explains the popularity of Grubhub and DoorDash. But unlike these delivery options, which also charge extra fees, Snackpass lets users pick up their food when it’s ready and costs the same or lower than menu price. It’s become a popular option at its native Yale, and, thanks to a recent cash injection, it could soon be coming to a campus near you.

  3. Through the combination of a smartly designed mobile app and a fleet of experienced drivers, DoorDash can deliver food from a wealth of local restaurants directly to your door.
    Still, there’s room for improvement. Like when it comes to late-night dining. At 2 am, options can be limited. “Most of the restaurants on the app close early at night, so at a certain point, you can no longer use the app,” says Samantha Gamble, a student at Harvard. Some users would like a delivery option, along the lines of Uber Eats or DoorDash, so you don’t have to leave your room. It’s a criticism Haimovici knows well. “We focus on takeout because college students are always walking to and from class.” However, with the recent funding, the company is looking to add a delivery option — and also to expand the app to over 100 additional campuses.
