Today, we are joined by Anthony De Los Santos, CEO and co-founder of website OrderText. 

OrderText is a contactless ordering website that restaurants, food trucks, and others can integrate into their business to reduce unnecessary human interaction.

At a time where everyone is focused on how to reduce the chances of spreading a virus this kind of technology has never been more useful.  It lets customers easily order from their table, and it lets staff know which table the order has come from. 

This is another company I’ve met that has been fortunate in an unfortunate situation, in that all of a sudden this is a really useful tech solution.

As we chat, Anthony explains exactly how the company works, and how he’s even looking for someone to partner up with…

”Jump in now while we’re at no cost, and help us build something cool.” – Anthony De Los Santos
