It all started with a gyros sandwich.
Greg was hungry. Greg wanted a gyros. He had the pita bread, the meat, the cabbage, the onions - all he needed was the tzatziki sauce. But Greg didn't have any tzatziki sauce. So he went to his local supermarket. No tzatziki. He went to his other local supermarket. No tzatziki.
Somewhere in town had to sell tzatziki sauce. But where? Greg could have ordered it online, but then he would have had to wait days or weeks for his gyros.
Why wasn't there a way to search for specific local products? So Greg decided to build it.
