Art Tkachenko: Art came up with the idea for Pantry, during a late night food run for his teammates. However nothing was open, so this food run didn't end with a satisfying meal, but rather an idea that blossomed into Pantry - a kiosk that offers real food 24-7. Art is currently responsible for all facets of the technology that allows for a superb user experience with the Pantry kiosk and a super-efficient inventory management system.
Alex Yancher: Alex joined Art in his mission to provide fresh and healthy meals and snacks because of his passion for healthy eating and bringing transformational businesses into existence. Alex is currently responsible for all operations related to establishing the supply chain, customer acquisition and business development.
Tony Chen: Tony is a foodie and finds cooking high on his hobbies list. He believes hard-working professionals should have access to delicious and healthy food whenever they want. Tony is responsible for software and hardware, but most importantly, a great user experience.
We wanted to bring fresh and healthy food and drinks to offices so we built a technology that allows us to do that at scale: Pantry. Pantry is an RFID enabled and touchpad-controlled refrigerated kiosk that is open 24-7. Our proprietary RFID technology creates an efficient inventory management system that informs us whenever a product has been purchased from the kiosk – this allows us to have a hyper-efficient servicing of kiosks. This technology also creates an amazing user experience that involves simply the swipe of a credit card – no self-checkout, no pressing buttons – just open the glass door and take what you’re craving.
