Cheetah is the first restaurant supply app, providing the simplest, fastest, most affordable way for restaurants to get their daily supplies. Founded and run by food industry veterans, supply chain and logistics experts, chefs, engineers, and data scientists, Cheetah delivers supplies to thousands of small businesses daily throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area. With Cheetah, business owners can reduce the time it takes to manage inventory from 2 hours to 5 minutes per day, lower waste and increase cash flow.
Why we invested
When it comes to procuring supplies for their business, many restaurant operators are stuck between two unappealing choices: either they spend hours manually picking items at brick-and-mortar wholesale retailers, or use specialty providers that lack price transparency. Cheetah is changing that. With their ability to forecast demand and manage picking, loading, scheduling and delivery with unmatched efficiency, Cheetah has already made a name for itself in the restaurant supply chains and logistics space. The company is in a unique position to carve out category leadership in a huge market that is neglected, archaic and underserved.
In the founder’s words
From my first interaction with Hanaco, I could tell that they are incredibly eloquent, smart, sensitive and understand the value of backing entrepreneurs with long-term visions. The entire Hanaco team is so patient and supportive. When you need something, they are always jumping to help. They’re neither too invasive nor too hands-off.
Additionally, Hanaco’s network has proven invaluable. They introduce us to potential recruits. They have actively helped us fundraise and made investor introductions, including one of their LPs actually invested in the company.
As a whole, the Hanaco team has a high level of integrity, and they really care about their entrepreneurs. They’re always hustling, not only for their own fund, but for their companies. They’re a wonderful early-stage investor in every way. ”
