What’s for Dinner? PE Puts Its Money Where Our Mouths Are
August 13, 2014
After a long day, dinner is always a cheering prospect—at least for the diner. For those who make dinner, going out to a restaurant instead is always a tempting, albeit pricier, convenience. But now there are even more options: Why not retain home comfort by signing up for meal kit delivery? Or perhaps cut out the onerous prospect of shopping by subscribing to an online grocery delivery service?
The companies around the world seeking to provide the answers to these questions all target what can be called the convenient food sector, where subscriptions, delivery services and restaurants scramble to capture the ideal combination of quality, convenience and cost. And although VC and PE firms target very different companies, those companies may be competing more and more these days to answer the age-old question: What’s for dinner?
