Senior entrepreneur major Daniel Owenby will test drive his newly founded business, Mealski, this month for students on and off campus. The main intentions of Mealski are to get students hot food in a reasonable amount of time for a reasonable cost without their having to leave what they are doing and to be available for most hours of the night.
Owenby said that Mealski is going to help students out at all hours of the night, and they can just have food delivered to them when they use the app.
Owenby said that the University of Indianapolis will be a practical test drive for Mealski’s delivery service and depending on how successful it is on campus will determine the outcome of a possible expansion.
Starting up the business and getting it on its feet had been a fairly smooth ride Instructor of Marketing and Entrepreneurship Stanley Osweiler and mentor of Daniel Owenby said.
“There hasn’t been a lot of confusion or angst or uncertainty or what do we do next?” Osweiler said. “I think part of that is because Dan took a prescribed, orchestrated and formalized approach to putting together a plan for this business.”
Owenby and Osweiler both agreed that feedback thus far has been primarily positive pertaining to the business.
“I haven’t heard one single negative comment about the idea or how Dan intends to implement it,” Osweiler said.
Osweiler said that the app developer meetings he has sat in on with Owenby have been very positive and that the app developers think that Owenby is orchestrating a real winner.
Owenby said that everyone has been very supportive both at the university and his friends and family back home.
