Landing in 3…2…1…
What’s the most elaborate way you’ve had your lunch or dinner delivered? We’re willing to bet that unless you live(d) in Melbourne, it wasn’t via parachute. Yet that’s exactly what one pop-up restaurant is all about.
Jafflechutes is the creation of David McDonald and Adam Grant. Together, they make jaffles once people order them on their website and pay for them via PayPal.
The Jafflechutes story started with a plan to create pocket parachutes for people who live on fifth floors and forget their keys. That market seemed a bit niche, so we began talking food instead. After a brief flirtation with Parajaffles, we eventually settled on Jafflechutes. The rest is history.
The sandwiches, cheese and ham or cheese and tomato, are then dropped from the seventh floor to the customer waiting below on the large “X”. To ensure a smooth delivery, each jaffle has its own parachute. Need a visual? Here’s one:
Jafflechutes has already had all their Melbourne jaffles pre-ordered and now they have set their sights on bigger horizons – New York. Via crowd-sourcing they are hoping to be able to drop jaffles to hungry souls in the Big Apple.
