Look out, AirBnB, Uber, Lyft and Fiverr, there’s a brilliant new player in the sharing economy! Silicon Valley startup, reSUBd, wants to help you recoup sandwich money lost to uneaten portions of your party subs!
“The seller takes a picture of their uneaten sub, estimates how long the sub has been sitting out and sets a competitive fair market price based on similar secondary sandwiches in their area.” – Davyd Louwis, CEO of reSUBd
We spoke to the CEO and president of reSUBd, Davyd Louwis about his red hot pre-revenue company. “Who hasn’t thrown a party and felt the sting of seeing a several foot-long party sub that has been molested by seemingly every single party goer and eaten by only a couple? It is ecologically wasteful, financially irresponsible and downright aggravating to throw out a slightly besmirched, but otherwise perfectly good, submarine sandwich. And it isn’t going to happen anymore thanks to reSUBd.”
“Our app helps you get in touch with a community of people willing to eat room temperature party subs. The seller takes a picture of their uneaten sub, estimates how long the sub has been sitting out and sets a competitive fair market price based on similar secondary sandwiches in their area. On the buyer end the sub shopper sets the distance he or she is willing to travel and a price floor based on the strength of their stomach and their overall constitution. The app will match the buyer and seller up and reveals the subs location when payment clears,” Louwis added.
Jim Krammer of CNBC’s Mad Money is very bullish on reSUBd and expects a red hot IPO when the stock becomes available next month despite other emerging competitors. There is SubFax which offers free food safety testing and will certify your pre-owned sub and non-profit Humane Sub Society who encourages people not to buy new party subs when there are so many orphaned party subs. They will assemble a piecemeal party sub made from abandoned subs for your gathering.
