The rapidly growing potato-sharing service “Tuber,” founded in San Francisco and currently available in dozens of cities around the world, launched today in Chattanooga, promising residents on-demand potato delivery through the use of a special smartphone app.
“We already have gigabit Internet service, so it was just a matter of time before we caught up with the world regarding on-demand potato sharing,” said local resident Jan Kermann. “I love the idea of being able to have a hot, buttery baked potato delivered to me at any time of the day, for a reasonable price, just by using my smartphone.”
One controversial aspect of Tuber’s business model is “Spud Surge” pricing, which can dramatically increase the price of potato delivery during rare times of high demand.
“Tuber will offer lightning fast service and quality potato sharing from local folks just like you,” said Tuber spokesperson Toby DiMuzio at a press conference Thursday afternoon. “This is one game of hot potato you’ll want to play.”
