Wisefork – Eating Healthy Transformed
Wisefork is transforming the way people eat healthy by empowering users with full menu transparency using the technology with which they are comfortable. What previously was a time-consuming and frustrating experience for professionals in the city is now a thing of the past. Wisefork presents the healthy items available at various local restaurants in one location, while also allowing them to be sorted and filtered by ingredients (e.g., for the sake of food allergies like peanuts, difficulties digesting gluten or lactose intolerance) and diet type (e.g., Paleo, Vegan). From there, clients have an easy way to determine the sort of takeout they want and to coordinate its delivery.
Wisefork works with local restaurants to dentify their fresh, nutritious and delicious meal options. Collaborating with chefs, nutritionists and our menu specialists, Wisefork provides users an aggregated view of the meals in their neighborhood that are in line with their health and wellness goals. Clients can order these meals for pickup or delivery on Wisefork’s platform and we route the meals to the appropriate restaurant who then is responsible for preparing and delivering the meal.
