Saskatoon's SkipTheDishes Set to Expand Training and Employment

Released on March 4, 2016

A technology firm with offices in Saskatoon plans to expand their Saskatchewan workforce by 300 jobs in the next three years.

SkipTheDishes presently operates in 10 cities across the country and has expanded into four U.S. cities.  The company is an online food ordering and delivery service launched in Saskatoon in 2013 by co-founders Joshua, Daniel and Chris Simair, Jeff Adamson and Andrew Chau.

Their corporate office in Saskatoon is expected to grow by up to 300 employees from its current 20.

“Increased employment in Saskatchewan’s technology sector will add strength to our diversified economy,” Immigration, Jobs, Skills and Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “Our government is committed to removing barriers to growth and investment, and that includes working with businesses to create jobs in our province and keep them here.”

“SkipTheDishes is excited to build a world-class tech company with offices at the beautiful Innovation Place in Saskatoon,” SkipTheDishes President and Co-founder Joshua Simair said.   “As one of the fastest growing tech companies in Canada, we are thrilled to create high-calibre careers and hire from top Canadian universities, particularly in Computer Science, Engineering, and Business.   With our plan to expand to over 100 cities in North America, our entire team is proud to be building the future of on-demand food delivery.”

SkipTheDishes, which won the University of Saskatchewan’s Wilson Centre i3 Idea Challenge in 2014, enables participating restaurants to offer their customers online ordering and streamlined meal delivery.
