A Night With Food & Wine
and the Entrepreneurs Behind Them
Plated is redefining weeknight dinner. Through weekly chef-designed menus, the company is helping America to eat and live better.
Josh Hix co-founded the company with Nick Taranto after they graduated from Harvard Business School. When they both moved back to NYC, they noticed their busy schedules directly influenced their diets. Plated's "dinner kit" is their solution. After you select a chef-designed recipe (the team releases a new featured menu every week), you receive locally sourced ingredients in a biodegradable box, which is designed to keep the contents fresh in your fridge for five days. All you need is about 30 minutes to make the meal!
