Business Development Manager (K-8)

Yay Lunch - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Full time

We are Yay Lunch, a new business concept with the mission to provide healthy food for kids away from home, beginning with school lunches. Our mission is simple: deliver delicious, healthy lunches made by local vendors to kids at school in an easy, reliable, cost-effective way for parents. How do we do it? We curate menus with local vendors in each market, families order online, and we deliver fresh lunches daily to kids at school. Easy!

Since launching a pilot in the 2017 / 18 school year, we have expanded rapidly. We've recently added operations in the Philadelphia area. We have aggressive growth plans backed by experienced venture capital partners, and we are excited about our prospects!

We’re a startup which means we are agile, outgoing, quick on our feet, and eternally positive.

We are a remote and distributed company, however, we are looking for someone that lives within the Philadelphia area.
