From TechCrunch - October 5, 2017

Gobble, a 15-minute meal kit delivery service, has raised $15 million in Series B growth financing from Khosla Ventures, TechCrunch has confirmed.

Khosla Ventures led the round, along with participation from previous investors A16z, Trinity Ventures and Initialized Capital.

Gobble came out of Y Combinator in 2015, around the same time many DIY meal kit services started to falter. For a while, it wasnt all roses for Gobble, either. I remember everything on our business charts was just going down and to the right, founder Ooshma Garg wrote in a YC blog post in 2015.

However, the startup pulled through and wasreportedly serving a million meals a year in 2015, though Gary says its much more now. Figures from a TXN report given to Gobble also claim a more loyal lifetime customer base than Blue Apron, Plated and other competitors at about $800 per year per customer.
