Students create snack delivery service
Three GW students launched www.collegesnacks.com this week, a company that delivers late-night snacks exclusively to other GW students. Delivery will be available Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.
Similar to the now defunct kozmo.com, the site will offer items including Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, brownies baked goods, and Stouffer’s frozen pizza. Prices range from 50 cents for a can of soda to $4.50 for a pint of Ben and Jerry’s vanilla ice cream.
Customers will also receive a free condom with each purchase, because the founders of the company are working with local health departments to promote safe sex. Part of the business’ proceeds will go toward AIDS research.
Juniors Matt Mandell, Tim Calise and senior Anthony Balestrieri created the company. Mandell and Calise also have another Web site business, VarsityText.com, which allows students from around the world to trade, sell and buy books.
