Rapidly growing e-commerce platform for specialty foods from around the world, Yummy Bazaar announced today that Weihua Yan has joined the company as Chief Technology Officer. Mr. Yan was cofounder and Chief Technology Officer of Quidsi, famously known for Diapers.com. Quidsi was acquired by Amazon in 2011 for over $500MM. Before the acquisition, Mr. Yan managed more than 200 team members and served on the executive team with Marc Lore, cofounder and CEO of Jet.com.
"I am excited to welcome Weihua to Yummy Bazaar," said Rebecca Chou, cofounder and CEO of Yummy Bazaar. "With over 20 years in e-commerce and large enterprise systems, he brings a unique blend of experience spanning e-commerce, operations, and online media. He is a well-rounded executive with an incredible background as well as operational expertise."
Having emerged from the founders' house in suburban New Jersey at the end of 2016, Yummy Bazaar has rapidly expanded to a company with its own fulfillment center in the southern part of the state. Yummy Bazaar gives customers the ability to shop one of the largest selections of specialty food from around the world in one place, highlighting selections from France, Italy, Japan, Korea, Turkey and more. Growing its product list every week, Yummy Bazaar is quickly becoming the go to shopping destination.
"I am thrilled to join Yummy Bazaar and believe Yummy Bazaar will revolutionize the shopping experience for specialty foods from around the world, while introducing top quality international brands as well as small batch food artisans to the U.S. market," said Mr. Yan.
"Mr. Yan's experience leading Quidsi's technology from the point where it was a garage startup to a company with sales of several hundred million dollars will be invaluable to Yummy Bazaar," added Rebecca Chou.
