So we thought it was about time we showed the team behind the Plateaway platform and got to know a bit more about us! We are a team of 7 and hoping to grow very soon and as such a small team, we have all dedicated ourselves to this business to make sure we all follow our main core values. These include teamwork, innovation, passion and commitment to our customers and our restaurant partners! We all know how to have a lot of fun and have a sincere and obvious TRUE love for food!
With an extensive background in UX and service design, Harry came up with the idea of Plateaway. As a MASSIVE foodie and a natural entrepreneur, he has always come up with business ideas and when COVID hit, he decided to finally take the plunge and build something! He’s not only the person who leads the team, but the person who has built, and continues to build the website and tech for Plateaway! He’s always making the team laugh with his huge passion for food and his equally huge appetite!!
