Usluga povezuje korisnike s novim restoranima i nudi besplatne vožnje Uberom

Usluga je dostupna potrošačima u Los Angelesu, New Yorku i San Franciscu.

16-godišnji Daniel Singer, osnivač više tehnoloških startupa, upravo je pokrenuo Cake.af, uslugu koja dovodi korisnike u nove restorane i pomaže restoranima da popune prazne stolove. Usluga, koja je lansirana prošle sedmice, dostupna je na tri tržišta: Los Angelesu, New Yorku i San Franciscu, navodi se u saopštenju.

Korisnici se prijavljuju za besplatnu uslugu slanjem emojija „kolač“ na Cake.afili slanjem SMS-a 574-742-4191. i podne u dan, sa terminima rezervacije. Ako kupac prihvati poziv, bit će poslan Uber za besplatnu vožnju do restorana.

"Uz Cake.af, potrošači se mogu osjećati kao VIP s autom koji im se pojavio na vratima kako bi ih izveo na odličan obrok", rekao je Daniel Singer, tvorac Cake.afa. “Iako još uvijek moraju platiti hranu, Cake.af čini večer lakšom i manje stresnom. Restorani koji se prijave sada imaju novi način da pomognu u popunjavanju stolova u sporo vrijeme u sedmici, a potrošači su izloženi novim restoranima. To je win-win! ”

Pozivi se šalju svim korisnicima u svakom gradu, a rezervacije se primaju prve, prve dostavljaju, pa je brz odgovor ključan. Veći prioritet imaju česti korisnici usluge, kao i oni koji su na poziv odgovorili sa "da", ali restoran nije uspio udovoljiti njima. Također je važno napomenuti da, iako je Uber usluga dostupna za dolazak u restoran, morate sami odrediti svoje planove prijevoza nakon obroka.

Slatka svirka: 16-godišnjak otvara pekaru MD

WASHINGTON — Većina tinejdžera provodi slobodno vrijeme zadubljena u društvene mreže i selfije, ali 16-godišnja Bree Britt nije poput većine tinejdžera.

Svaki dan u 15:50, Bree izlazi iz školskog autobusa na maloj traci sa izlozima na ulici Livingston Road u Accokeeku, Maryland. I ispod bijele tende na kojoj piše "Breeine slatke poslastice", tinejdžer se pretvara iz srednjoškolca u vlasnika preduzeća.

"U zavisnosti od toga koliko je dan naporan i šta moramo da uradimo sledećeg dana, ja ću biti ovde", kaže Bree dok sedi za stolom u kafiću svoje prodavnice.

Učenica srednje škole St. Mary's Ryken otvorila je svoju pekaru 2013. godine nakon što je sa 12 godina pokrenula uspješan online pekarski posao. No Breeino putovanje u izradu slatkiša počelo je mnogo prije nego što je dostigla dvocifrene znamenitosti.

„Kad sam imala 5 godina, pa navršila 6, bila sam potpuno aktivna u kuhinji s obje moje bake“, kaže Bree. Pečenje je trebalo odvratiti pažnju Bri, čiji je otac doživio traumatsku ozljedu mozga dok je služio u vojsci, a dok je bila mlada bio je u vegetativnom stanju.

“A kad se moj djed vratio kući, on je bio naš kušač ukusa. … Obožavao je to. Nakon napornog radnog dana, vratio se kući na dobru hranu i poslastice ”, kaže ona.

U početku su Breeine lekcije u kuhinji bile uglavnom pouke, ali kako je napredovala, njene bake su dopustile Bree da preuzme vodstvo.

"Pekla sam godinama, kako je vrijeme prolazilo, i to mi je bio hobi, posebno tokom srednje škole", kaže Bree koja je, osim što je kuhala za svog djeda, počela dostavljati slatkiše na uredske zabave za svoje tetke i ujaci.

Bree je shvatila da želi da podigne svoje talente na viši nivo nakon što je dobila zadatak da napravi desert za zabavu Sweet 16 svog rođaka.

“Za mene je to bio vrlo kreativan trenutak, nisam htjela raditi nešto što je uobičajeno, poput obične torte. Htjela sam učiniti nešto što će zadiviti ljude ”, kaže ona.

Bree je svoj posao shvatila vrlo ozbiljno. "U to vrijeme sam bio na sigurnom i stavio sam recept tamo, a za to sam nacrtao planove i imao sve opise."

Za zabavu je napravila 50 ražnjića za kolače s pripadajućim domaćim umakom od umaka. Do kraja noći, svaka posljednja mrvica je nestala. Tada je Bree odlučila sjesti i razgovarati s mamom o profesionalnom pečenju.

“Rekao sam joj:‘ Volim ovo raditi. Zaista. I to me zaista čini sretnom i volio bih ovo pretvoriti u nešto više. ”

Breena mama, Charmaine, priznaje da je isprva bila pomalo skeptična prema kćerinim idejama, ali joj je na kraju ponudila podršku. "Bilo je potrebno nešto uvjerljivo, pa sam za kompromis rekla da može prvo početi s internetom, a mi ćemo je naći negdje za pečenje, a ja ću je dostaviti", kaže ona.

Bree je dokazala da može održati svoje ocjene časti, a pritom je miješala tijesto i unosila ga. Bree's Sweet Treats otvorila je svoj trenutni izlog, a samo prošlog mjeseca proširila se na jelovnik i prostor za sjedenje.

Vraćajući se u kuhinju, Bree bira razne kolačiće, kolače, kolače, kolače, kolače, pite i slatki kruh —, ali tek nakon što završi školske obaveze.

„Obično prvo prvo obavim domaći zadatak, a zatim idem na posao, jer su mi ocjene jako važne“, kaže ona.

Dok je u školi i uči, njena mama vodi pekaru, uz pomoć Breene bake i prabake.

"To je zaista postalo porodični posao", kaže Charmaine. “Imamo četiri generacije koje zapravo imaju utjecaj na ono što se ovdje događa. ”

Bree čak stavlja svog mlađeg brata na posao kada je u pitanju čišćenje, i pokušava naučiti svoju sestru (6) koliko god može kada je u pitanju pečenje.

Tokom ljetnih mjeseci Bree preuzima zahtjevniju ulogu: daje mami predah i uskače u vođenje posla.

"Uhvatila je ruku u svakom aspektu posla i bilo je sjajno", kaže Charmaine.

Bree je osvojila želudac mještana poludjelih šećerom, ali je njen posao privukao i pažnju nekoliko fakulteta i univerziteta, željnih susreta s ambicioznom tinejdžerkom. I Bree ima pogled na zainteresovane škole. Ona zna šta želi u budućnosti, a to je da bude veterinar.

"Znam da je to skretanje ulijevo od onog gdje se trenutno nalazim, ali iskreno, dugo sam to željela i ništa me nije promijenilo", kaže ona.

To ne znači da će baciti pregaču i napustiti pečenje. Bree razmatra programe kulinarskih škola za ovo ljeto i kaže da bi čak mogla pokušati oživjeti svoje online poslovanje dok je na fakultetu.

Lokalni ljubitelji pekare ne trebaju brinuti: Charmaine planira zadržati lokaciju Accokeek otvorenom čak i u odsustvu njezine kćeri kako bi pomogla Bree da ispuni san svog oca, koji je preminuo 2013.

"Uvijek je govorio da će do 40 -e postati milijunaš, a ja pokušavam ostvariti njegov san", kaže Bree. "On je također veliki dio pekare.##Cijela naša porodica, naše pristalice ... a naši kupci su poput naše porodice. Ovo je porodica Bree's Sweet Treats. "

Bree je svoj posao shvatila vrlo ozbiljno. "U to vrijeme sam bio na sigurnom i stavio sam recept tamo, a za to sam nacrtao planove i imao sve opise."

Za zabavu je napravila 50 ražnjića za kolače s pripadajućim domaćim umakom od umaka. Do kraja noći, svaka posljednja mrvica je nestala. Tada je Bree odlučila sjesti i razgovarati s mamom o profesionalnom pečenju.

“Rekao sam joj:‘ Volim ovo raditi. Zaista. I to me zaista čini sretnom i volio bih ovo pretvoriti u nešto više. ”

Breena mama, Charmaine, priznaje da je isprva bila pomalo skeptična prema idejama svoje kćeri, ali joj je na kraju ponudila podršku. "Bilo je potrebno nešto uvjerljivo, pa sam za kompromis rekla da može prvo početi s internetom, a mi ćemo je naći negdje za pečenje, a ja ću je dostaviti", kaže ona.

Bree je dokazala da može održati svoje ocjene časti, a pritom je miješala tijesto i unosila ga. Bree's Sweet Treats otvorila je svoj trenutni izlog, a samo prošlog mjeseca proširila se na jelovnik i prostor za sjedenje.

Vraćajući se u kuhinju, Bree bira razne kolače, kolače, kolače, kolače, kolače, pite i slatki kruh#8212, ali tek nakon što završi školske obaveze.

„Obično prvo nastojim obaviti većinu domaćih zadataka, a zatim krenuti na posao, jer su mi ocjene jako važne“, kaže ona.

Dok je u školi i uči, njena mama vodi pekaru, uz pomoć Breene bake i prabake.

"To je zaista postalo porodični posao", kaže Charmaine. “Imamo četiri generacije koje zapravo imaju input o tome šta se ovdje događa. ”

Bree čak stavlja svog mlađeg brata na posao kada je u pitanju čišćenje, i pokušava naučiti svoju sestru (6) koliko god može kada je u pitanju pečenje.

Tokom ljetnih mjeseci Bree preuzima zahtjevniju ulogu: daje mami predah i uskače u vođenje posla.

"Uhvatila je ruku u svakom aspektu posla i bilo je sjajno", kaže Charmaine.

Bree je osvojila želudac mještana poludjelih šećerom, ali je njen posao privukao i pažnju nekoliko fakulteta i univerziteta, željnih susreta s ambicioznom tinejdžerkom. I Bree ima pogled na zainteresovane škole. Ona zna šta želi u budućnosti, a to je da bude veterinar.

"Znam da je to skretanje ulijevo od onog gdje se trenutno nalazim, ali iskreno, dugo sam to željela i ništa me nije promijenilo", kaže ona.

To ne znači da će baciti pregaču i napustiti pečenje. Bree razmatra programe kulinarskih škola za ovo ljeto i kaže da bi čak mogla pokušati oživjeti svoje online poslovanje dok je na fakultetu.

Lokalni ljubitelji pekare ne trebaju brinuti: Charmaine planira zadržati lokaciju Accokeek otvorenom čak i u odsustvu njezine kćeri kako bi pomogla Bree da ispuni san svog oca, koji je preminuo 2013.

"Uvijek je govorio da će do 40 -e postati milijunaš, a ja pokušavam ostvariti njegov san", kaže Bree. "On je također veliki dio pekare.##Cijela naša porodica, naše pristalice ... a naši kupci su poput naše porodice. Ovo je porodica Bree's Sweet Treats. "


Slatka svirka: 16-godišnjak otvara pekaru MD

WASHINGTON — Većina tinejdžera provodi slobodno vrijeme zadubljena u društvene mreže i selfije, ali 16-godišnja Bree Britt nije poput većine tinejdžera.

Svaki dan u 15:50, Bree izlazi iz školskog autobusa na maloj traci sa izlozima na ulici Livingston Road u Accokeeku, Maryland. I pod bijelom tendom na kojoj piše "Breeine slatke poslastice", tinejdžer se pretvara iz srednjoškolca u vlasnika preduzeća.

"U zavisnosti od toga koliko je dan naporan i šta moramo da uradimo sledećeg dana, ja ću biti ovde", kaže Bree dok sedi za stolom u kafiću svoje prodavnice.

Učenica srednje škole St. Mary's Ryken otvorila je svoju pekaru 2013. godine nakon što je sa 12 godina pokrenula uspješan online pekarski posao. No Breeino putovanje u izradu slatkiša počelo je mnogo prije nego što je dostigla dvocifrene znamenitosti.

„Kad sam imala 5 godina, pa navršila 6, bila sam potpuno aktivna u kuhinji s obje moje bake“, kaže Bree. Pečenje je trebalo odvratiti pažnju Bri, čiji je otac doživio traumatsku ozljedu mozga dok je služio u vojsci, a dok je bila mlada bio je u vegetativnom stanju.

“A kad se moj djed vratio kući, on je bio naš kušač ukusa. … Obožavao je to. Nakon napornog radnog dana, vratio se kući na dobru hranu i poslastice ”, kaže ona.

U početku su Breeine lekcije u kuhinji bile uglavnom pouke, ali kako je napredovala, njene bake su dopustile Bree da preuzme vodstvo.

„Pekla sam godinama, kako je vrijeme prolazilo, i to mi je bio hobi, posebno tokom srednje škole“, kaže Bree koja je, osim što je kuhala za svog djeda, počela dostavljati slatkiše na uredske zabave za svoje tetke i ujaci.

Bree je shvatila da želi prenijeti svoje talente na viši nivo nakon što je dobila zadatak da napravi desert za zabavu Sweet 16 svog rođaka.

“Za mene je to bio vrlo kreativan trenutak, nisam htjela raditi nešto što je uobičajeno, poput obične torte. Htjela sam učiniti nešto što će zadiviti ljude ”, kaže ona.

Bree je svoj posao shvatila vrlo ozbiljno. "U to vrijeme sam bio na sigurnom i stavio sam recept tamo, a za to sam nacrtao planove i imao sve opise."

Za zabavu je napravila 50 ražnjića za kolače s pripadajućim domaćim umakom od umaka. Do kraja noći, svaka posljednja mrvica je nestala. That’s when Bree decided to sit down and talk to her mom about baking professionally.

“I told her, ‘I like doing this. Zaista. And it really makes me happy, and I would love to turn this into something more.’”

Bree’s mom, Charmaine, admits she was a little skeptical of her daughter’s ideas at first, but eventually offered her support. “It took some convincing, and so to compromise, I told her she could start online first and we’ll find her somewhere to bake and I’ll deliver,” she says.

Bree proved she could maintain her honor-roll grades, all while mixing the dough — and bringing it in. Bree’s Sweet Treats opened its current storefront, and just last month expanded to include a café menu and seating area.

Back in the kitchen, Bree whips up a variety of cupcakes, cakes, cake pops, cookies, brownies, pies and sweet breads — but only after she finishes her schoolwork.

“I usually tend to get most of my homework done first, and then go work, because my grades are very important to me,” she says.

When she’s at school and studying, her mom runs the bakery, along with some help from Bree’s grandmother and great-grandmother.

“It’s truly become a family business,” Charmaine says. “We have four generations that actually have input as to what goes on here.”

Bree even puts her little brother to work when it comes to cleaning up, and tries to teach her sister, 6, as much as she can when it comes to baking.

During the summer months, Bree takes on a more demanding role: She gives mom a break and steps in to run the business.

“She’s had her hand in every aspect of the business, and it’s been great,” Charmaine says.

Bree has won over the stomachs of sugar-crazed locals, but her business has also attracted the attention of several colleges and universities, anxious to meet the ambitious teen. And Bree has her eyes on the interested schools, as well. She knows what she wants in the future, and that’s to be a veterinarian.

“I know that’s a left turn from where I am right now, but I honestly have wanted this for a long time, and nothing’s really changed my mind,” she says.

That’s not to say she’s going to throw in the apron and abandon baking. Bree’s looking into culinary school programs for this summer, and says she may even try to revive her online business while she’s away at college.

Local fans of the bakery don’t need to worry: Charmaine plans to keep the Accokeek location open even in her daughter’s absence to help Bree fulfill the dream of her father, who passed away in 2013.

“He always said that he was going to be a millionaire by 40, and I am trying to make his dream come true,” Bree says. “He is a big part of the bakery as well — all of our family is, our supporters … and our customers are like our family. This is the Bree’s Sweet Treats family.”


A sweet gig: 16-year-old opens Md. bakery

WASHINGTON — Most teenagers spend their free time engrossed in social media and selfies, but 16-year-old Bree Britt isn’t like most teenagers.

Every day at 3:50 p.m., Bree gets off the school bus at a small strip of storefronts on Livingston Road in Accokeek, Maryland. And under a white awning that reads “Bree’s Sweet Treats,” the teen transforms from high school student to business owner.

“Depending on how busy the day is and what we have to do for the next day, I’ll be here,” Bree says while sitting at a table in the café section of her store.

The St. Mary’s Ryken High School student opened her bakery in 2013 after launching a successful online baking business when she was 12. But Bree’s journey into crafting confections began long before she reached double digits.

“By the time I was 5, going on 6, I was fully active in the kitchen with both of my grandmothers,” Bree says. Baking was meant to be a distraction for Bree, whose father suffered from a traumatic brain injury while serving in the Army, and was in a vegetative state when she was young.

“And when my grandfather came home, he was our taste tester. … He loved it. After a hard day of work, he came home to some good food and treats,” she says.

At first, Bree’s lessons in the kitchen were mostly instruction, but as she progressed, her grandmothers let Bree take the lead.

“I kept on baking throughout the years, as time went on, and it was kind of my hobby, especially during middle school,” says Bree, who, in addition to cooking for her grandfather, began delivering sweets to office parties for her aunts and uncles.

Bree realized she wanted to take her talents to the next level after being tasked with making dessert for her cousin’s Sweet 16 party.

“It was a very creative moment for me I didn’t want to do something that was ordinary, like regular cake. I wanted to do something that would wow people,” she says.

Bree took her job very seriously. “At the time, I had a little safe and I put the recipe in there and I drew plans for it and had every description in it.”

For the party, she constructed 50 cake skewers with an accompanying homemade dipping sauce. By the end of the night, every last crumb was gone. That’s when Bree decided to sit down and talk to her mom about baking professionally.
