About the Author

MIKE EVANS founded GrubHub in his spare bedroom and grew it into the multibilliondollar online food delivery colossus that is a household name. Since leaving GrubHub, he founded Fixer.com, an on-demand handyperson service focused on social impact. He lives in Chicago with his wife, daughter, dog,
and bike.


"Mike Evans changed the way we eat dinner, and in Hangry, he shows us that it's possible to transform a passion into a massive success. Mike's riveting story shares the exciting highs and brutal lows of building a company from scratch. This is one of the most enjoyable and informative business books I've ever read."--Ryan Serhant, star of Bravo's Million Dollar Listing New York and National Bestselling author of Sell It Like Serhant
"In one of the truest portrayals of startup life I've ever read, Hangry lays out the painful-but-true story of the founding of GrubHub. But unlike most self-aggrandizing and chest-pounding entrepreneurial memoirs, company founder Mike Evans is brutally honest about how it really went down; the uncertainty, the disappointments, and his continuous struggle to keep a growing company true to its original vision. But it is more than just a business book--it's a personal journey as well. Hangry is right up there with ShoeDog for being one of the most honest and vulnerable depictions of what really goes into building a business."--Marc Randolph, co-founder of Netflix and author of That Will Never Work
"A page-turning, lesson-rich account of how--and how not--to build a business empire."--Kirkus
"GrubHub cofounder [Mike Evans'] illuminating debut, an account of how the food delivery service grew from a scrappy start-up to a multibillion-dollar company. Evans is frank about the challenges he faced as the company grew...This punchy memoir delivers."

--Publishers Weekly
"Hangry will find an eager audience among business professionals and general readers who enjoy a peek behind the scenes of business-world celebrities."--Booklist
