MealPal, a NYC-based lunchtime meal service, raised $15m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Comcast Ventures with participation from Bessemer Venture Partners, Haystack Partners and NextView Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate growth, with the launch in London marking the company’s eighth city and first international market. MealPal debuted in Miami, its first market, in January 2016 and has since launched in Boston, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Philadelphia, and San Francisco., facilitating over 1 million reservations with thousands of restaurants now participating.
Led by co-founder & CEO Mary Biggins, MealPal provides a subscription service that provides members with daily lunch options from restaurants near where they live or work. Through MealPal, hundreds of restaurants – both large and small – offer one dish per day to subscribing members. Using a website or mobile app, members can browse meals available at restaurants near them, filter meals by cuisine and portion size, and preorder the night before or in the morning, choosing a time to pick up their lunch.
