David Chang’s culinary empire has only expanded since opening Momofuku Noodle Bar in 2004, diving into restaurants, bars, and even a lifestyle and food website Lucky Peach. One of Chang’s latest projects, Ando, a delivery-only food service, has caught the attention of stars Aziz Ansari and Jimmy Fallon.
Ando’s unique business model only services select New York City neighborhoods (currently Midtown East). The service prepares high-quality meals at an undisclosed location and delivers them in an Uber-style fashion.
Ansari and Fallon are two of the investors behind the celebrity chef’s startup, according the Mashable.
"As a brand that stands for craft and quality, trying to reinvent a category, we bring on people who share those same high standards," co-founder Hooman Radfar told Mashable. "These are guys who are experts at their craft. Aziz is someone we can email about copy, about voice, about brand."
In addition to Ansari and Fallon, other investors include the chairman of Estée Lauder, a co-founder of Warby Parker, and the founder of SoulCycle.
