Our founder Joe had been working in office jobs for a number of years when he came up with the idea for nez. He’d grown up in London, watching the food and drink scene explode, and yet had found himself having the same, tired lunch every day.
One day, Joe walked past a restaurant that had put up a ‘Half Price’ sign outside but still didn’t seem to be getting much attention. Realising there wasn’t a digital equivalent to the conventional restaurant chalkboard, that connects local traders with a local audience, Joe wondered whether there would be an appetite for an app featuring hyperlocal, real-time offers in London.
We first launched in Fitzrovia and immediately became an essential app for office workers, residents and partners in the area. We now cater for users in Soho, Bank, Covent Garden, Holborn, Farringdon, St Paul’s and Chancery Lane - and we’re only just getting started.
nez is rapidly welcoming new partners to its platform, as Londoners begin to see the benefits of the best food and drink app in the market. We’re preparing to launch in even more parts of London throughout 2019, helping office workers across the city to raise their lunch game and discover great local food spots on their high street.
