Nick Taranto hates grocery shopping, and like most of us, he can’t afford to dine out every night, so answering the dreaded question, “What’s for dinner?” became a real challenge for him.
For a while, Taranto just ordered lots of greasy take-out but then, he says, he got fat. And that’s when the former Marine and Harvard Business grad set out to turn the common dinner dilemma into a big money maker.
“We’re on a mission to help Americans eat better,” said Taranto. “The food system in America is stodgy, opaque and incredibly wasteful.”
Now Taranto knows exactly what’s for dinner, and he believes his start-up, Plated, will not only eliminate annoying trips to the grocery store but also change how people all across America put dinner on the table.
CNBC gave Taranto 60 seconds to dish out his big idea to see if he could convince YOU and a panel of judges he has the recipe to make millions and that his company knows exactly what you want to eat tonight!
