Our Story & Mission

About us

One cold, snowy day in December 2019, a group of students was hanging out in their dorm. They wished to order some food from DoorDash or GrubHub. Still, they thought of all the headaches and issues that accompanied that decision: long delivery times, high fees, and delivery drivers who did not know their way around campus. Sound familiar? 
We were motivated to find a solution to this problem, which is when Clutch Delivery was born. We strive to offer more dining options to students: faculty, staff, and guests at higher education institutions, with the convenience of having their food delivered to their dorms, offices, or anywhere on campus in a timely fashion.

Our Team

Celestin Abwe


Founder & President of Clutch Delivery LLC

Every obstacle in life is just another problem to solve. My model in life is to find a way and make it happen, no excuses. I recently worked as a Business intern Associate for the Le Moyne institute focusing in Business Development. We worked on creating new tools to help our clients simplify and efficiently perform their day to day tasks. I focused on learning analytics reports and conducting customer discovery in different industries. During my tenure as the Director of social innovation at International Child Advancement, we were able to help provide education, supplies and vocation assistance to orphans in Goma, DRC Congo. Thanks to the wonderful work of Evelyn Kessler, the founder of ICA. I also oversaw the pen-pal/ mentoring program that connected children from ICA to higher end institutions such as Canisius College and University at Buffalo.

“There are no ordinary people”, C.S. Lewis. From a young age, I experienced sonder, and since then I have valued networking which led to my interest in sales and marketing. My first experience in networking began at Georgetown Preparatory School but making lifelong connections did not stop there. While studying MIS & Marketing at Le Moyne College I had the opportunity to gain new connections and experiences which tremendously influenced my career. What eventually led up to my current position at Clutch Delivery is a result of self-application outside of school. Notably my portfolio of advertisements and customer analysis. Starting from creating flyers for SU frats to working on year promotion plans for D.C clubs I seek to walk further in the path of Marketing and develop a fruitful relationship with all the people I interact with.
