Plated is a gourmet food delivery service based in New York. Customers go online and select the healthy, yummy meals (about $12 per portion) they want to make later. Then Plated delivers all the fresh ingredients right to their home. Plated has had success in the Northeast, and now they want to go national. That’s why they went on Shark Tank, where they landed a deal with Kevin O’Leary.
