About My Happy Plates
Here’s the problem. You’re driving home from work after meetings ran late and get the “what’s for dinner?” call. Or maybe your belly starts growling because you’re hungry. Immediate stress. You don’t like spending all your time at the grocery store and you don’t have the time, inclination, or patience to plan ahead for what to eat. Also, those meal kits are convenient, but way too expensive.
We’ve been there, and it’s why we’re building products that help folks with the stress around meal planning.
Each week My Happy Plates makes personalized recipe recommendations and helps users build a simple, great tasting plan for the week. Then we build a smart shopping list that users can either take to the store or order directly through our platform for on-demand delivery. It’s not rocket science, but we’re saving folks about an hour per week when it comes to thinking about food. We think that’s pretty cool.
We’re focused on helping companies build great employee experiences. We work with companies of all sizes – from 10 employees to 150,000 employees – and roll-out as part of a corporate wellness or culture initiative. It’s really hard to attract and retain great teammates, and then to empower them to be the best versions of themselves. That’s where we step in. We’re fostering happy, healthy teammates, and companies in all sorts of industries are really excited about what we’re doing.
That’s where you come in. It’s been an exciting two years for us at My Happy Plates. There’s big demand for what we’re doing and we’re starting to crack the code on what it takes to deliver a product experience that people rave about. We’re looking for the person that’s going to help continue to drive our product forward by creating recipes that our users rave about.
