WoodSpoon Raises $14 Million

WoodSpoon, a home-cooked food delivery service, is planning an expansion after raising $14 million in Series A funding. Restaurant Brands International led the round along with World Trade Ventures and a group of individual investors, including Victor Lazarte. They began reaching out to local home chefs in the area and gathered them together in a marketplace where they could share their culture and passion of food with others. Two years later, the company boasts over 16,000 active customers in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens and 50% month over month growth. Customers can order dishes that run the gambit of world cuisine through WoodSpoon’s website or app and receive on-demand delivery to their doorstep or schedule service.
