Joe and I (Nikil) graduated from Stanford, moved to San Francisco, and really missed hanging out with our friends because we were working all of the time. It was really hard to coordinate hangouts and we wished we always surrounded by our friends like in our dorm at college.
We thought it would be really awesome to be able to press a button and see who was free to hang out. So one Sunday afternoon we sat down, blasted some One Direction, started coding, and Down To Lunch was born. 🙌
Within 48 hours, Down To Lunch (aka DTL) got really popular among our friends and sparked a ton of awesome spontaneous lunches and dinners.
A freshman at the University of Georgia randomly found DTL and it started spreading like wildfire through the school. We had put our phone numbers in the app so you could text us if you had any questions (not at all realizing how big it would get). We started getting 5000 text messages a day. No joke. Our phones stopped working and we couldn't receive calls and texts for months. 😂
Down to Lunch hit a new milestone - students started having DTL themed parties 🎉
DTL is continuing to blow up and is used by students all around the country. And we're just getting started! 🙌
