A Perfect Day Eating Out In New York City - Wallet Free

I arrived in New York City on an unusually warm day in December on a quest. I wanted to spend the entire day eating amazing food -- of which NYC has a lot -- and pay without ever pulling out my wallet. This was my first trip to New York City since I joined my sister, the founder of Treatmo, as co-founder. 

Because I had just 24 hours to see and eat as much as possible, ordering ahead with my phone through Treatmo would allow me to plan, save time and share my trip with friends all at once through one app. I wanted to reduce friction as much as possible in the checkout process and record my experience, too.

Between building a company, travel for said company, managing a team of coders in another country, finding a co-founder, navigating the tricky startup world, studying code and relocating to another city, 2015 was pretty intense as CEO of Treatmo.
