Dorance Cuba was on a grand adventure seeking a second master’s degree from INSEEC in Bordeaux, France, this time in International Business Management. While in school, his wife, Gloria, was attending language school and doing extensive research into technology they could bring to the Valley.
“We were looking for something to provide the area which the Valley didn’t have before. We wanted to bring technology, to be able to contribute to the Valley. That was the most important thing to my wife,” Dorance Cuba explained.
Ultimately, Gloria Ordaz Ruiz became owner, founder, and CEO of Ranvu, a mobile app and website developed two years ago that allows users to order groceries online and have them delivered within two hours.
“We started with that line to test the Valley and see how people would adjust to it,” Cuba said.
Winning a 2017 Innovation Grant from the McAllen Chamber, and grateful for their location at the McAllen Creative Incubators Tech Space, they continue to build additional platforms for this amazing service.
Today you can even use Ranvu to order from many restaurants and enjoy the benefit of having dinner delivered to your home in a short time. Save time and gain freedom from dealing with time-consuming chores. Call in an order at your local store and they can have Ranvu to deliver it with their third-party delivery service integration. It’s almost like hiring your own personal assistant.
Ranvu users no longer have to waste time going to the store, standing in line at the register, cooking or even going to the dry cleaners, when they could be doing other things.
“We simply wanted to help people with their busy lives.”
