Every time I turn around these days, a new startup is popping up to deliver either cooking kits or prepared meals to your home or office.
Almost all of them, though, zero in on San Francisco first, before spreading to other parts of the Bay Area.

The founders, Marc Manara and Mark Wittman, who got the idea for the business while students at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, started the service first in the South Bay. They wisely deduced that in urban centers like San Francisco, it’s fairly easy to walk out the door to find a tasty lunch close by. But in more suburban areas, going for lunch often means getting in the car to drive a few miles for sustenance.
