Our Story

"I set out to build a solution that can help my mom to manage her online business"
~ Daniel Hernandez, Founder & CEO of Fonda.

From an early age, Daniel brought entrepreneurial creativity to everything that surrounded him. From selling candy to his middle school classmates, or being the marketing force behind several successful restaurants while still in high school, he was always one step ahead of his peers and bosses.

Daniel’s mind was constantly figuring out better solutions to people’s needs, and this often meant that he didn’t fit the general “employee” mold.

When his ambition outgrew all his previous restaurant jobs, Daniel saw a business opportunity in the market by starting his own courier service for the local university students and quickly grew the business to serve over 20k clients, but then Daniel did the unexpected and pivoted to support Latino & minority owned restaurants.

"I discovered that my mom an award winning chef was struggling with all the technology and multiple online services needed to sell food online, so I set out to build a solution that can help my mom manage her online business, and then I discovered that my mom was one of many latino restaurant owners struggling with the same problem"
