The crossover of food and emojis is expanding rapidly. You can text Cronuts, Champagne sabering and Mario Batali on a Vespa with Food & Wine's new keyboard. And then, of course, there are more complicated food emoji projects—like using the tiny pictures to actually order a meal. A couple weeks ago, Domino’s shocked the world (or at least the Twittersphere) when they announced customers could order a pizza simply by tweeting a pizza emoji to the brand’s Twitter account. But while many of us were left perplexed by this ridiculous stunt, someone out there was thinking, “All right, sure, but what about the dozens of other food emojis we aren’t using to order food?"
Well, a new company called Fooji has you covered. Set to launch in June, Fooji promises to deliver users all sorts of meals based on all of the major food emojis. You set up an account, tweet them an emoji and food ends up at your door.
Fooji cofounder Gregg Morton outlined the Fooji process for us. “Since there is no description included in the tweet, we pick a meal from a top-rated local restaurant to represent each emoji once a week. We like to boast that we’re an adventurous foodie’s dream. Also, an emoji-lover’s dream.”
