It’s been roughly a year since I last mentioned Foodzie.com. In that time, the site has grown the point where it is now capable of making headlines beyond our little food community. The site, which is tagged as an online specialty shop for food, just made a big splash by hiring Adam Sah. The name won’t mean a lot to many around these parts, but this is an interesting hire. Sah, who has been enlisted as the VP of Engineering, cut his teeth working for internet behemoth Google. If you use iGoogle or any of the Gmail gadgets, then you have Sah to thank. After all, he’s the man behind Google Gadgets. Though that might not impress every technophile you come across, it is still a noteworthy accomplishment.
This is the result of tremendous growth from Foodzie. In the year previous, they went from 25 vendors to 250. Also notable is their branded partnership with The Atlantic, that really kick ass website. I’ll be curious to see what a guy like Sah will serve up for Foodzie.
