Catherine McCord: One Potato
French fries don’t count as vegetables, but try explaining that to a screaming toddler. Catherine McCord, celebrity chef and entrepreneur, knows the struggle all too well. That’s why she founded One Potato, a service that delivers fully-prepped meal kits of fresh, organic food right to the front doors of busy families. We learn what it was like to raise millions when she hadn’t even heard the term “VC” before. We get her tips on her favorite social media channels and stories about how her expertise has translated to founding a manufacturing company. She and her team deal with manufacturing challenges, like packaging, supply chain, and scaling. Her beginner’s mind has served her well as they teach a whole new generation of families to cook and eat together for the first time. Parents love it, kids love it… everyone’s happy but the pizza guy.
About Catherine McCord

In 2012, Catherine published her first book, Weelicious: One Family. One Meal.
