Corvis was founded by former Division I NCAA Water Polo players and lifelong athletes, Bobby Wurtz and Davis DeFontes. As team captains, Bobby and Davis both experienced first-hand the challenge of finding healthy, convenient, and affordable meals for their team while traveling to competitions.
Convenience always took precedent over nutrition and those meals never provided the proper nutritional balance needed for competing at a high level. Bobby and Davis believe that competitive athletes, who put in countless hours of hard work to be successful, should have both convenient and nutritious meals available to them when they travel..
As an entrepreneur with a background in neuroscience and biology, Davis dove headfirst into the realm of athletic nutrition and developed the foundation for the world's first customizable athletic meal service. His vision allowed Corvis to develop an algorithm specifically for athletes with a focus on the ultimate nutritional precision.
With an aptitude for math and computer programming, Bobby provided the quantitative ability to turn Davis' foundation of research into a functional algorithm. He also developed and integrated the website and mobile applications affording coaches and players the seamless delivery of healthy, affordable, and convenient meals.
With more than 30 years of experience in the foodservice industry, Bob brings invaluable experience to the Corvis team. His knowledge of food production and culinary management provide the base of knowledge upon which all of our kitchens succeed on a day-to-day basis.
