New company arrives in Buffalo and aims to ease dinner difficulties

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — It’s a company called Skip the Dishes and its goal is to help people do just that – no dishes but still having local meals.

“What we’re doing is not about food but about time and allowing people time to focus on what they really care about,” said Joshua Simair, the CEO and co-founder for Skip the Dishes. “We’re focused on bringing world class service to the cities in between.”

The company is Vancouver-based but seeks out middle sized cities, like Buffalo, to provide services for; cities other companies sometimes overlook. Skip the Dishes originally launched in 2013 and made its way to Buffalo in March. Simair says the Queen City is the largest and fastest growing city where the start up is located.

“It shows that people in Buffalo are really modern,” said Simair.  “It’s a great city and it’s just proving it. The adoption rate here is as good as a big city.”

More than 75 local restaurants, like Anderson’s, are involved with the delivery service, which boasts it takes less than 45 minutes from order to food-in-hand.  Over the next few months, the service plans on expanding their reach, getting more restaurants involved, times to order and people looking to skip doing their dishes.
