Hi everyone and thanks for hunting @benln! We've created Bitebot as a side project based on a real-life office problem - how to easily eat together, without disturbing the day too much. Ordering food is an important part of every office day - we are taking breaks together and can talk about anything with everybody - including people who are working on different projects, on other floors. Even when we go out for lunch, it is easier for one person to pay for the whole order and just use the system to figure out the payments. Bitebot simplifies two things: 1. Collecting order - just send a Slack command and you're going to get your meal 2. Paying back - Bitebot picks a person that will call the restaurant and pay for everybody - next couple of times she'll eat "for free" (everyone’s balance evens-out after a while) We’re still in beta and there are some rough edges, but it’s completely usable right now. We’d love to know what you think - could it be useful in your company? If not - is there something we could add to make it useful?

Just the right thing for our office - "hungry Slackers"!

I remember having to do all this manually a few years ago when my startup used Hipchat - big hassle. We would have loved using this instead. The ecosystem that's developing on top of Slack really is magical...or in this case, delicious

OMG! Just what we need for our office! We tackled this "problem" till now by having a dedicated channel on Slack called #team-hungry lol :D
