HistoryEdit

Coffee Meets Bagel was created by three sisters: Arum, Dawoon, and Soo Kang.[2] The site was launched in New York City on April 17, 2012.[3]

On May 10, 2012, Coffee Meets Bagel launched in Boston.[4] On October 24, 2012, the app launched in San Francisco.[5]

On January 9, 2015, Coffee Meets Bagel was featured on an episode of Shark Tank. During the episode, Mark Cuban hypothetically asked "If I offered you $30 million for the company, would you take it?". The Coffee Meets Bagel team said they would not.[citation needed]

FeaturesEdit

It differs from other dating apps by limiting the number of profiles users can interact each day.[6]

Coffee Meets Bagel looks at each user's Facebook account to help identify potential matches. A user is exposed to at least one match per day, but can only contact their matches if they "Like" them and their matches "Like" them back.[7][8]
