GoodGood, a local (e-commerce?) commerce company that brings together curated items, local hard-to-find favourites, and specialty snacks through instant delivery and retail, has announced that it has raised CAD 6.5 million. The funding comes from Golden Ventures, BKCM, Tet Ventures, Maple VC, and Canadian angel investors including Farhan Thawar, VP of Engineering at Shopify, and Chris Rickett, co-founder of Digital Main Street.
GoodGood is founded by Robert Kim and Kris Linney, with a team from Google, Ritual, and Shopify. The funding will fuel GoodGood's Toronto growth to make it easier for neighbourhoods to access their favourite makers and artisans.
In early 2022, GoodGood will announce the opening of a series of café and wine bars coming to various Toronto neighbourhoods. Canadian makers include City Seltzer, Honey's Ice Cream, Mid-Day Squares, Heartbeat Hot Sauce, Smart Sweets, and more.
