Jacksonville’s SaaS scene is still in its budding stages relative to larger powerhouse cities like New York, Autstin, San Franciso, and Miami, but there’s still a small but growing cohort of ambitious companies providing technology products to the broader market. In this post, we’ll outline a few of the Jacksonville SaaS companies to watch in 2022.
Hazlnut just raised 3 million in new funding in a Series A round from local Jacksonville venture capital firm PS27 Ventures, in combination with Atlanta Ventures, to expand their online ordering solution for restaurants who were shocked by the recent coronavirus pandemic as consumers rapidly transitioned to ordering more takeout and delivery.
“Hazlnut is an all-in-one ordering solution that helps companies develop deeper relationships with their customers through beautifully designed websites and custom branded apps. Hazlnut is on a mission to support local, independent, and regional restaurant brands thrive. They do so by providing a software template for web-based, app, and in-store ordering solutions. Unfortunately, the cost of hiring web and app developers is a greater investment than most restaurant owners can afford. Hazlnut offers development, onboarding, and ongoing support at an affordable monthly rate.“
This is an exciting new development and it’s great to see a local Jacksonville SaaS company capitalize on the recent surge in available venture capital funding to take advantage of the rapid growth in Software as a Service development and purchasing that’s taken the country by storm. We’ll definitely be keeping an eye on Hazlnut.
