Ben is the Co-Founder & COO of Favor Delivery. Ben started delivering pizza the moment he got his license back in 2006. He loved it so much that he continued delivering throughout college. Ben & his college roommate first had the idea for Favor while attending California Polytechnic University in May of 2011. They were so excited that they quit their internships, moved across the country and set up an office in Ben's parents basement. They bought a web development "book for dummies" and built everything from scratch.
As the previous CEO, Ben raised $11.2M in funding, ran product & engineering and led the charge launching 15 cities. In the fall of 2015, Ben recruited Jag Bath to be their new CEO (read more here: https://favordelivery.com/one-step-closer-to-tokyo/). Today, Ben leads expansion, operations and perfecting the service across Favor's 20 cities.
