Sprig: Cooked for You, Right From Your Phone
We’ve already discussed how the brilliant New York-based startup HealthyOut helps users be both lazy and healthy. San Francisco startup Sprig offers another variation on that low-effort, healthy dining theme by offering locally sourced, chef-made delivery meals. Sprig doesn’t focus on specialized diets, but it does offer vegetarian and gluten-free meals to diners.
Sprig’s service is available to iPhone users in (most of) San Francisco, between 5:30 and 9:30 PM daily. All you’ll need to do is choose what you want and then have the meal delivered. The service promises about 20 minutes for delivery and offers $10 for an entree with a $2 delivery fee. (Twelve dollars is a pretty great price for any kind of dinner in San Francisco!) The menu changes daily, so users can check the day’s specials and order it up for dinner.
Sprig’s next steps will be developing and releasing an Android app. No word on whether a satellite Sprig might be headed to other locations.
