Delicious Asian Food Delivered in Minutes

COMPANY OVERVIEW

We believe that you should not have to choose between eating healthy and conveniently. Bento delivers delicious Asian food in minutes in San Francisco.

Using our app, customers start building their Bento by choosing a main dish. We have three options, that rotate daily. Next customers choose four side dishes. We have six to eight side options, that also rotate daily.

After placing an order, customers track their server’s location and progress. They’ll meet our server curbside, grab their Bento, and it’s time to eat!

Our patent pending packaging enables this system allowing for delivery in an average of 15 minutes.

Since launch we have seen double-digit W/W growth.

TESTIMONIALS

I believe that Bento is the restaurant of the future and that if they can figure out how to make this product work in San Francisco, they can take it to hundreds of cities. I’m very impressed with the progress and will be investing again in this round.

Bento continues to make excellent progress towards creating the restaurant on the future. As the team executes on figuring out unit economics and unlocking San Francisco, this is the perfect time to invest.

Really really awesome food! Fantastic variety and really fresh. The freshness is really impressive when you consider the fact that the food is mostly raw fish, but it arrives fresh as though a sushi chef had just cut it himself.
