Summary Problem Solution Industry Landscape
Platerate transforms the search for the ultimate dining experience, to ensure restaurants are consumer-focused and profitable.
Over 70% of People want to try new food, but generally gravitate towards ordering the same menu items they've tried in the past because they don't want to risk not liking new food.
We offer a credit for free food to return to the restaurant when you try new dishes at our partner restaurants -- and we can incentivize customers to try the highest rated menu items that restaurant has based on customer's menu-item level reviews.

The food pickup/delivery/in restaurant order space is crowded, but full of competitors looking to charge the highest rates possible for undifferentiated product. We come in at a lower price point with a better, highly differentiated product, in order to win word of mouth recommendations from the restaurant decision maker community - We plan to "win by being more innovative and generous than the competition"
