It should come as no surprise that someone obsessed with data, analytics, and food would figure out how to put them all together and create something truly extraordinary. After achieving tremendous success with Exact Target – acquired by Salesforce – and Compendium Software – acquired by Oracle – Chris Baggott (@chrisbaggott, TW) started Tyner Pond Farm and that’s when a new idea was born. What if someone could create amazing, fresh food from scratch and deliver it to customers in minutes without a storefront?
That’s how ClusterTruck came about, a freshly prepared food delivery service currently operating in Indianapolis, IN, Columbus, OH, Kansas City, MO, and Denver, CO. Unlike their competitors that deliver food from any restaurant, ClusterTruck is a collection of restaurant concepts and every meal is created from scratch and delivered hot and fresh. A true end-to-end experience.
In this conversation, Blake and Chris discuss:
- How Real Estate Professionals should be preparing and accommodating services like ClusterTruck.
- Why services like delivery must be part of the business plan, not an add-on service.
- How data can be leveraged to create an exceptional meal and overall experience.
