Why you should join Habitat Logistics

Habitat is a logistics solution for restaurants seeking a drop-in delivery solution for their online, third-party, and call-in orders. We provide a tablet to restaurants that aggregates their orders, and allows them to request a driver. To put it simply, there's no consumer facing app - to the end customer, we ARE the restaurant.

We've been in business for 3 years, and are established in the Philadelphia metro area and Newark, Delaware. As recently funded graduates from the Winter 2019 Y Combinator batch, we are poised to enter an additional 3 markets by the end of this year.
