Headquarters: San Francisco, CA

We are currently developing an exciting new camera app called Chomp. This app allows you to capture mouthwatering dining experiences and share them with friends. 

In the United States, there are 53M people who take pictures of their meal while dining in restaurants, however, 60% of these users do not post their pictures on social media. 80% of Snapchat users use the app in restaurants, however, most people don't tend to post their pictures on social media because they prefer to share their dining experiences privately with friends. For this reason, there is a need for an app that allows users to privately share their experiences.

It is our aim to make Chomp the most widely used camera app for dining experiences not only in the U.S but also all over the world.
