In our last episode, we spoke with serial entrepreneur Chris Baggott about Tyner Pond, the AGA-certified farm he runs with his wife Amy, and how it relates to their vertically integrated restaurants. The second part of our conversation focuses on a related but entirely different part of Chris’ business, as well as his views on the future of food distribution.
As I mentioned in the last episode, Chris helped found two technology companies that were sold to Salesforce and Oracle respectively. His experience in tech and his passion for food led him to start ClusterTruck, an algorithmically-driven prepared food delivery company that takes orders exclusively online and times the preparation of different dishes in each order so that everything is ready as soon as a delivery person returns to the kitchen.
The world has changed a lot since we had this conversation, but not so much that it isn’t worth sharing.
