David Chang-Backed Delivery Start-Up Maple Is Launching in Midtown on Wednesday
Maple, the delivery start-up that counts David Chang as an investor, is bringing its chef-designed packaged meals to Midtown. The app, which is not connected to a specific restaurant, launched last spring and has been expanding its delivery zone, initially limited by where its neighborhood kitchens were located. On Wednesday, Maple will add service to the area from 42nd Street to 14th Street, between Eighth Avenue and Park Avenue. A daily rotating menu of dishes will be available for delivery both in Midtown and below 14th Street by ordering through Maple's website or apps.
The start-up received a lot of attention when it launched after getting $22 million in venture capital funding and signing on chefs like Dan Kluger, Mark Ladner, and Brooks Headley for input on the menu. Maple offers limited edition desserts for delivery from Milk Bar pastry chef Christina Tosi and Ample Hills ice cream as well.
