Rank in U.S.
Performance Score:
80 out of 100

Online meal-delivery service added two executives to its plate in 2016 with plans to scale its business in 2017. John Kuehn was named COO, and Prasad Pola was named senior vice president of engineering. Kuehn’s resume includes the same role at Provide Commerce, where he helped scale the business from a one-brand e-commerce company with $150 million in revenue to 10 brands and $600 million in revenue during a 10-year span. At Plated, he will scale the supply chain and help run operations more efficiently, the company says. The company kicked off 2017 with the debut of an Android app, which was designed around the success of the Plated app that launched in 2015, and expanded meal options.
