Gobble delivers customizable meals ready to cook right, without preservatives, across the United States, right to their customers’ doors. The supply chain challenges involved in doing that safely and reliably are daunting. Steve Robinson says, “We have a young team of engineers, data scientists, operations managers, that don’t know those are hard problems. We have a customer base that doesn’t care that those are hard problems. […] Personally I have had the good fortune in my career to manage the global supply chain for Walmart, the global supply chain for Starbucks, but I’ve honestly never seen a more complex and challenging set of supply chain opportunities.”
In just two years, Robinson and his team doubled Gobble’s business and grew the company from six to 42 states, all the while expanding its menu offerings and dramatically reducing costs and error rates in the incredibly challenging meal kit delivery space.
