Jim Oliva had been working in the restaurant industry for about 15 years, and one thing was clear; The internet was quickly evolving and drastically changing the way that people and businesses interacted with one another. This lead Jim to ask himself a question that would unknowingly change his life forever, “How can I use the internet to get more customers into my restaurant?”

Fast forward to December 2004; Jim had linked up with a young software developer, Jamal James, and together they founded Ordereze (formerly known as J&J Multimedia Inc) with a simple mission—to provide the best technology, resources, and support for restaurants to grow in an online world. 

"When we started out, it was just Jim and I, with two desks, two chairs, two phones, and two computers set up in the basement of Jim’s house." - Jamal James

Within a year, persistence and drive enabled Jim and Jamal to hire 6 people, therefore quickly outgrowing Jim’s basement. This lead to the first “real” office for Ordereze, a modest-sized commercial space on top of an old factory in Bay Shore, New York. From the office in Bay Shore, Ordereze continued to grow with Jim as the CEO—handling the sales/business development, and Jamal as the CTO—constantly developing new products and software to stay ahead of the curve.

One Saturday afternoon in 2010, after watching “The Social Network”, a movie about the rise of Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook, Jamal was so inspired that he immediately rushed home after the movie and began coding. He didn’t sleep for two days, driven by the passion to create something great for Ordereze’s customers. On Monday morning, he sent an email to Jim letting him know that they now had the ability to create mobile websites for customers.
