It’s tough to run a business dependent on tourism when there are no tourists, and when the places you would show off to the tourists are closed by a global health crisis. Neither of those facts stopped Angela Shen as the startup entrepreneur started all over again.
Shen is the founder and CEO (Chief Eating Officer) of Savor Seattle. For the past 13 years — prior to COVID-19 — she was in the business of leading food and cultural walking tours in Seattle. When tourism and the restaurant industry came to a screeching halt, the business pivoted nearly overnight into the curated and aggregated food delivery space.
