Starting in mid-November, three student-entrepreneurs are launching Fraichy, an online store that unites Montpellier food businesses. Get everything you need to buy online, with delivery at your home or office.
Business angelDelivery is handled by local cargo-bikes, which can carry up to 100 kg of products from a maximum of 7 stores for any given order, within 2 hours or 5 days depending on the situation. Other benefits include the fact that online prices are the same as those actually found in the physical shops, without any extra cost for merchants. The moderate delivery fee is paid by customers, according to Tom Vea.
The new service was launched by three recent Master’s graduates from Montpellier, all with degrees in entrepreneurship from the Montpellier Management Institute (University of Montpellier). As student-entrepreneurs assisted by Pepite-LR, they benefited from pre-incubation at Montpellier BIC starting in June, and received their first financial backing from a business angel and a crowdfunding campaign. That’s just what Fraichy needed to launch its service for individuals and businesses.
