Lettuce Apps is acquired by Intuit for $30 Million
The Lettuce Apps team has its roots in the Technology Management Program at UC Santa Barbara. The founders, Raad Mobrem (Mechanical Engineering, 2009) and Frank Jones (Computer Science, 2008), initially came together in John Greathouse's course on Entrepreneurship (TMP122). The team originally came up with an idea they called Dura-Doggie (Durable Ideas), a company that began by producing toys for dogs. While the team chose to leave the Dura-Doggie brand behind, they did find success with the software they developed for their inventory management system, Lettuce.
The company describes themselves as "the simple online inventory and order management system for people like you. People who want to get rid of the repetitive data entry, and instead focus on growing their business."
