“The Food On-Demand Enthusiast”
Walter loves Biscuits & Gravy for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The only problem is his crazy work schedule doesn’t allow him to make dinner for his son at night so he tends to order food through a variety of on-demand food delivery apps.

There are many restaurants in his area who offer biscuits & gravy that he loves. The only problem is none of those restaurants deliver. With Gravytrain, Walter would be able to enjoy his biscuits & gravy anytime. anywhere.

Goal
– Easy access to the best Biscuits & Gravy in the area
– Fast and reliable on-demand food delivery that delivers on time
