Montclair State accepting student ID for online food orders

Campus partners with fledgling Northeastern online ordering company

New Jersey's Montclair State University has partnered with, an emerging online ordering and delivery service, to begin accepting the university's campus card and Red Hawk Dollars as a form of online payment beginning this summer.

Montclair State will join a pocket of Northeastern campuses to partner with Deals4Meals, which despite being in business since November 2011, is yet to make significant inroads on campuses nationwide. The company opened its Seed Funding Round on May 18th, and earlier this year partnered with the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ and New York's Pace University on both their Lower Manhattan and Pleasantville, NY campuses.

Deals4Meals has also worked with Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ since early 2013 and is looking to add other campuses in the Northeast in the early stages of its expansion. The company offers a virtual food court of sorts and a dedicated delivery service for restaurants and other local merchants. Students can order for pick up or delivery and pay with their student ID card just as they would on campus. Credit, debit and cash payments are also accepted.

Deals4Meals hopes to have added 10-12 campuses by year's end 2016, but company CEO and Founder, Kenneth Cucchia, is hesitant to project growth beyond that. "As this year comes to an end, I'll have a pretty good idea of where we're at," he says. "The schools we're pushing live in the coming months happen to be pretty conveniently located for us, but next year we'll have decisions to make in terms of our direction. I'm definitely looking forward to the challenge."
