86 Repairs, a Chicago, IL-based subscription service that manages repairs and maintenance for restaurant groups, raised $1.5m in funding.
The round was led by Tamarind Hill, with participation from Invest Detroit Ventures, Relish Works, Network Ventures, MATH Venture Partners, M25, and several angel investors.
The company intends to use the funds to:
– accelerate sales and marketing growth,
– expand in Detroit and Chicago, and
– continue building its proprietary software platform.
