 Travis Johnson Biography

Travis Johnson is the CEO & co-founder of foodjunky. A self-described foodie, Travis came up with the original idea while completing a business plan assignment during his studies at University of Colorado-Boulder. Upon graduation, he moved back home to Chicago and began work at Gamon International, an in-store marketing agency. While at Gamon, Travis led product development and sales, patenting five different products; including the IQ MaximizerTM, which is used by Campbell’s Soup.

In 2011, after spending many years eating the same meal during every meeting at his corporate job, Travis decided to reignite his old business plan. It was finally time to pursue his passions for both tech and food. After officially launching at Built in Chicago in early 2013, Travis and foodjunky excitedly moved to Detroit to join the Quicken Loans Family of Companies. foodjunky.com is currently the fastest growing food ordering site in the country. The University of Colorado, Travis's alma mater uses foodjunky.com as a case study within the business school.

In addition to being the centerpiece of a successful startup, Travis also runs the local chapter of Bootstrappers Breakfast, a nationwide meet-up for entrepreneurs. Outside of work, he enjoys mentoring local youth groups, training for triathlons, and, of course, eating.
