Andy and Will are the founders of Bottle. We met several years ago when Andy finished at Columbia Business School and Will was running a small consulting firm in Nashville after graduating from Vanderbilt.
Our first project was working together on our own local delivery business in Atlanta. While running that business, we invested hundreds of hours and money into building technology to support our ordering and operations. When we started taking orders over text, we knew we had built something special. Customers were immediately more engaged and excited about ordering our meals.
And what we always believed to be true was affirmed: at the heart of every great, local business is customer relationships. We knew at that point we wanted to work with other local delivery businesses to help them build strong, engaged and meaningful relationships with their customers.
