In an update posted yesterday on its Kickstarter page, Savvy Orders says that when "some of the previous employees explained that they were not interested in working with us, we offered to turn the Kickstarter over to them." His offer to turn the campaign over to staff last received no response from many, "except for a couple of them who have said 'please don't contact us.'"
