In recent years, seemingly more and more people have made a commitment to eating healthier — or at least alter their diet. We have also seen the rise of food delivery services like DoorDash and Postmates. 10 years ago, a couple of Harvard graduates launched Plated. Plated is a subscription-based meal delivery service that provides locally-sourced fresh food. Mark Cuban was so enamored with the company that he invested $500,000 for 5.6-percent. Within a few years, Plated’s revenue spiked to $100 million. In 2017, Plated was acquired by Albertsons for $300 million.
