Industry Night with Foodie & The Beast

Plum Relish + Catering

Episode Summary

We all like to be catered to, yes? Especially at work and especially at lunch (when the company is paying!), where a catered meal holds promise of an escape from tasteless sub sandwiches, mealy, cold soups or lifeless salads. Rejoice, because now there’s Plum Relish, DC’s new catering service that works with local, chef-driven restaurants (Like which? Like Founding Farmers, Chi-Ko … and more!) to deliver delicious, bento box lunches and family-style platters to offices around the DMV. In tonight with Foodie and the Beast are Sarah Van Dell, founder/CEO of Plum Relish, a D.C.-based hospitality-tech startup inspired by Sarah’s years of dreading the "sad desk lunch,” and Kingsley Onyechi, the company's director of partner services and operations. Listen in on a great chat that ranges from entrepreneurship to standing up a new catering model to … huge success and big investors, all the while delivering delicious food to quality-starved office workers.
