Recently, WebiNerds had a conversation with Kristian and Jacob of HomeFood. We agreed to work together and finally, after 2 months of development using React Native these amazing entrepreneurs got apps that allow HomeFood's customers to order home-cooked meals directly to their place of residence or office!

We had a great experience working with this start-up and are convinced they will be wildly successful!

For those from our network who are in London - check out HomeFood. You'll be very surprised by their prices and quality. Give them a try and leave some pics and feedback!
