P.A. entrepreneur’s food delivery service now available in P.A.

Four years after Prince Albert’s Josh Simair helped found the Saskatoon- and Winnipeg-based food delivery company Skip the Dishes, the service is now available to P.A. residents.

Skip the dishes was co-founded by the P.A.-born entrepreneur in late 2012 and got a boost two years later after winning first place at former Dragons’ Den host W. Brett Wilson’s Innovation Challenge competition.

Simair said in the past year alone the company has grown by “around a few hundred percent.”

“We’re just expending to Prince Albert now and Prince Albert’s our 18th city and that’s since we launched at the end of 2012,” Simair said, adding that the expansion came after a pilot project determined the city would be a viable location for Skip the Dishes.”
