You may have spotted Podshare cruising around Bristol these last couple of months. The high-tech electric cargo bike (pictured above) is pretty hard to miss, especially with its disco LEDs and friendly drivers.

But this eco-startup has now taken things to the next level by launching its very own local food delivery app – FOOD CUBE – to ensure that the city’s businesses are provided with the tastiest local food in style and with minimal impact on the environment.

“We delivered 40 sandwiches, snacks and drinks to Desklodge companies on Tuesday who loved the service”


The FOOD CUBE web app, which was launched just over a week ago, offers a pre-order service of office lunches and food for events – promoting the city’s best local cafes and restaurants whilst providing food for the same value as advertised in the cafe – with free office delivery for orders of 10+ to boot.

For those wanting to experience some eco-friendly and tasty delights but have less than 10 hungry friends, collection is available from 3 central Bristol locations and can be ordered via a handy FOODCUBE Android app. As part of the trial the pickup locations include Queen Square (7-9am), Temple Quays (12-2pm) and one rotating location (check the FOOD CUBE app to stay up to date).

FOOD CUBE and Podshare’s founder Guy Barkley tells us, “We want to simplify the ordering process for the customer. The FOOD CUBE app makes it super easy to pre-order quality local food with us.

“Our mission is to make Bristol’s best local food available to everyone in the city, at the same price and delivered sustainably.”

Commencing the lunch launch

Following a successful launch (pictured right), the team are now offering regular deliveries across the city with food partners including Biblos, Bagel Boy and Lovett Pies.

Guy adds: “On launch day we delivered 40 sandwiches, snacks and drinks to Desklodge companies who loved the service and has asked us back for more.

“Our main goals now are polishing the new webpage and getting people aware of us for office deliveries and events.”
