Hangry - How a Starbucks queue sparked a dining revolution

Hungry for Success: How a Starbucks Queue Sparked a Dining Revolution

Fabian Raso was just an MBA grad from Queen’s University when he was stuck in a long line at Starbucks and came up with a simple but revolutionary idea…a mobile ordering app that would significantly decrease waiting times for students living on campus. 

Fabian set out with an ambitious goal: his idea was to turn campus dining into something simple, reducing wait lines and frustration. From a simple idea to acquisition, Hangry reached a significant milestone, being acquired by Transact Campus Trends, a major provider of meal plans and campus cards in North America.

Hangry offers a myriad of features including food ordering, curbside pickup, delivery, dining hall reservations, dietary filtering, and nutrition tracking. It enhances convenience, saves students’ time, and elevates the campus dining experience.
