Urban Plates – March Featured Member

We were delighted to have Urban Plates sponsor our February VIP Lunch and host our amazing group.

Our good friend and 805 Startups supporter, Austin R. recently joined the Thousand Oaks location as their General Manager. Upon learning of this we immediately reached out and asked if Urban Plates would be interested in supporting our community. Of course, he was eager to host us.

Austin has not only proven to be a great supporter of 805 Startups, but of the entire community. While GM at in his previous employer he worked hard to establish programs to help our local charities and schools raise funds and connect to donors.

This was our first time at Urban Plates and it was a wonderful experience. The food was outstanding and fresh. The cafeteria style ordering is fun and quick. They have a great selection, all fresh and delicious! Oh, the blueberry lemonade is outta control!!! Dang, now I’m craving it.

We had a fantastic time hanging out on their patio where we got to enjoy some beautiful and relaxing chiller California winter weather.

We also got to learn about their great catering options. I ended up putting in a delivery order shortly after our lunch and they do a great job packaging and handling the food. I was really impressed, especially after spending so much time a co-founder for a on-demand food delivery startup.

Don’t be surprised to see some of our other future events featuring their great food.

If you have your own event or lunch that needs some food, be sure to head on over to https://urbanplates.com/catering-info/

Be sure to stop in soon and ask to meet Austin so you can get to know a great member of your community.

Hopefully, this will be a recurring occurrence for future VIP Lunches!
