ZeroCater removes stress from corporate catering. A catering concierge, ZeroCater brings employees together, builds culture, and fosters community—all over lunch. ZeroCater partners with the best local pop-up kitchens, gourmet food trucks, restaurants, private chefs, and caterers in the Bay Area, Chicago, New York City, and Washington, DC, making it easy for companies to feed their employees wholesome, delicious food.
The ZeroCater-Romulus story: We were introduced to Arram through a mutual friend, an early employee at Dropbox who knew Arram through the YCombinator network. ZeroCater’s incredible operational efficiency, which allowed it to achieve $100M in sales with only $1.5M raised, impressed us. We partnered with the company to help take it to the next stage of growth.
Romulus value in action: Executing. ZeroCater’s intense focus on air-tight execution takes the headache of corporate catering away from corporates themselves. Similarly, ZeroCater is an incredibly well-run, well-operated business that aligns with our execution-first values.
