May 15, 2023 | USNA

“EveryDoor is our B2B brand where we are coming alongside those large delivery providers and retailers so we can help them…grow their revenue and serve these customers in hard-to-reach markets. EveryDoor is an extension of our company where we take what we do best and we put it in the hands of delivery providers and retailers to make them successful.”  -Todd Waldemar, USNA ‘89

Todd Waldemar is the founder of ChowCall, a 3rd party food delivery business that delivers to military bases and other hard-to-reach markets. He is now scaling his business with the launch of EveryDoor, a B2B brand that partners with large delivery providers and retailers to help serve hard-to-reach customers. After graduating from the United States Naval Academy and serving as a Marine Corps Officer, Todd opened up a restaurant and delivered almost one million orders to military bases over the span of 15 years. This experience led to the creation of ChowCall and EveryDoor. Todd holds an MBA from the University of California, Berkeley.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Todd’s journey from the Naval Academy, to serving in Iraq, to becoming an entrepreneur
  • The inspiration for ChowCall and how the company has grown since 2019
  • How EveryDoor will help Todd to scale his business and meet the needs of people in hard-to-reach markets
  • The challenges Todd is facing and his goals for EveryDoor

Todd is launching an EveryDoor pilot program on select military bases. From there, he has a much larger vision of how he can provide value to hard-to-reach markets. Thank you, Todd, for your commitment to helping the military community and for providing a service that meets the needs of service members and their families.
