Company Summary

GlobalFoodie is a social checklist of foods to try around the world. From crepes in France to Khao Soi in Thailand, GlobalFoodie makes sure you don't miss the iconic dishes worldwide and lets you share new foods with friends. International and US travelers alike will use Global Foodie as their goto travel food guide. Our long term vision is broader: we want to "gamify" the experience of trying new foods and create a worldwide food scavenger hunt.
