Further, Arnie Katz, Co-Founder and President, noted the impact that additional behind-the-scenes operational changes will have: "Adding over 15 new vehicles to our fleet, dramatically increasing our freezer and cooler capacity, and launching a commercial kitchen operation are all investments that customers cannot see immediately but that will dramatically enhance the overall Relay customer experience. These changes will enable the rollout of new pickup locations, the development of an in-house prepared foods line, and the addition of even more product offerings from local vendors."
Investors who contributed to the $8.25 million round include a mix of forward-thinking market, tech, and social impact investors and investment funds. Relay Foods remains a portfolio company of Battery Ventures and TomorrowVentures.
