In this episode, I get to chat with Ray Reddy, who is currently the co-founder & CEO of Ritual. For those that don’t know what Ritual is, it’s a mobile food pickup app that taps networks of co-workers and colleagues for fast and easy pickup and pay at a wide variety of local restaurants and coffee shops and it’s expanding internationally.
If that’s not impressive, Prior to Ritual, Ray co-founded mobile commerce company PushLife that was acquired by Google in 2011. At Google, Ray led mobile product management for shopping and commerce. It was while at Google that Ray saw the potential to better leverage a social application to unlock mobile commerce and thus, Ritual was born. He has so many golden nuggets of wisdom to share
- How they build a product for everyday people and why they selected Toronto over Silicon Valley to launch.
- How not being covered in the Tech press for 2 years was an amazing gift
- He really talks about how we need to change the view on failure
Ritual is a social ordering app that taps networks of co-workers and colleagues for fast and easy pick up and pay at a wide variety of local restaurants and coffee shops.
With Ritual, users can mobile order and pay at all their favorite local eateries and coffee shops and have it ready to pick up when they arrive. By also uniquely giving friends and colleagues the ability to add their own food orders onto an existing order, Ritual gives customers the choice of either picking up themselves or having their food brought right to their desk.
This ‘social ordering’ saves customers time and drives incremental orders for merchants. The best and busiest quick service restaurants and coffee shops in major cities across North America are using Ritual to give them a competitive, technological edge, driving profitability, and a more personalized way to connect with their customers.
