Nishant Singh

I grew up in Northern India under the himalayas in a city known as Roorkee. Completed my undergrad in Computer Science from a college in India and in 2007, went to Arizona State University for the Master's program where I secured full scholarship from Hispanic Research Institute. In 2010, I joined Amazon as a Software Developer based out of Seattle where I developed systems for Amazon fulfillment and last mile.
While working at an office every day, each morning at 11:30AM, I would ask my co-founder Denis "where would he like to go for lunch". I would end up picking up a food truck or a restaurant near by and we will repeat the drill of standing in lines, bringing lunch back to our desk day after day. Lot of other people in Amazon would also go out at lunch and repeat the same drill as we did. So I thought is it possible to get lunch delivered to these offices with a minimal delivery cost considering the dense demand. Peach was born on June 2014 and now fulfills lunch orders in Seattle, San Diego and Boston. We raised venture funding from the likes of Howard Schultz's Maveron, Paul Allen's Vulcan group as well as Madrona Ventures. With Peach, our mission is to provide quality food to people working in offices at an affordable price.
Outside of Peach, I love to take friends and family out to taste variety of food at restaurants. Chances are that I have tasted food at all the restaurants in Seattle. Huge travel fan and been to 15 countries with Indonesia and Australia next in line. I am also big into yoga and love to go camping in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. On the weekends, I can be seen riding my bike in the capitol hill neighborhood in Seattle juggling a coconut water and a samosa in my hand. My passion is to introduce good food to people and I am fortunate that I get to do that everyday in my life.
