Why we exist

Why We Exist - Section Text

After spending 15+ years in various technical leadership roles, Beta Acid’s founder, Ryan, decided the part he loves most about startups is getting to build cool shit. Out of that passion, Beta Acid was born.

Ryan brings his enthusiasm and experience to every Beta Acid project, helping teams of all sizes design, build, and launch new digital products using the methods and expertise he’s developed over the years.

Today, Ryan works alongside a team of 30+ engineers, designers, and other doers to bring all kinds of projects to life. We kick names and take ass (and make obscure Marvel references along the way).

Melt Shop

Case study

Constantly innovating, we helped Melt Shop recognize the new opportunities COVID-19 brought for them. With decreased foot traffic, they invested in their digital presence.

A mobile ordering app and revamped web site allows them to showcase the diverse menus of their new virtual concepts, and a brand new loyalty program gives customers a reason to keep coming back.


With Cardata, we built a brand new tracking app to help their enterprise customers better track mileage for reimbursement.

We worked closely with their leadership team from the UI and UX design phase through architecting and developing the app. The app is available for iOS and Android devices.


Case Study

Sesame, a part of Beta Acid Ventures, is an early stage NYC-based restaurant marketplace designed to fix a broken system where third party delivery providers make all the money, restaurants operate at a loss, and consumers are charged ridiculous fees.

Le Pain Quotidien

Case Study

Check out how we helped Le Pain Quotidien, a global bakery and restaurant brand, launch web and mobile ordering apps for their guests.


Case study

We built a digital menu ecosystem for breweries, bars, and restaurants. From world class mobile and desktop apps, to signage solutions for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, and more. And we topped it all off with a powerful back-office dashboard.

Anheuser-Busch InBev

Case study

We helped the world's largest brewery go from early-stage prototype to a fully launched, massively scaled product. Powered by data from multiple Point of Sale systems, a machine learning model, and a competitive spirit, this app brings data driven decision making to the front lines of bars and restaurants.
