Launched in 2020 by founder and CEO Lee Hnetinka, San Francisco-based FastAF has partnered with more than 600 national and local retailers to curate a selection of essential products spanning multiple categories, including grocery and snacks, bath and beauty, and home and office. With curation, FastAF has achieved an average order value of $142
