Foodjets Chico: Bringing food to you

FoodJets, a new service that delivers your favorite restaurant food in Chico right to your door, is a brand new venture for owners Andrea and Chris Duffey. Andrea, who is originally from Maryland, and Chris, who grew up locally by the Sutter Buttes in the small town of Meridian, met in Gridley while they were both living there in 2000. Together, they moved to Virginia, then back to California, to Auburn, and finally settled on Chico as the place they wanted to live. Andrea had worked for 12 years as a physical therapy assistant, later to become a stay-at-home mom to 5-year-old Reagan (pictured), and Chris is an engineer who earned his degree at Chico State. As luck would have it, one of their neighbors in Auburn is the CEO of FoodJets—he started the company 25 years ago as Food to You in Sacramento, but changed the name and business model in the last couple of years. He suggested the Duffeys open up a franchise when he learned they were moving to Chico. The couple are enjoying the new challenges and the freedom of running their own business. There is a $4.99 delivery charge, and restaurant partners include Inday’s Filipino Restaurant, the Foodie Cafe and LemonShark Poké. Check them out at, or download their smartphone app.
