‘Ripe’ Healthy Meals Startup Takes New Clinton Street Space
The mid-section of Clinton Street – between Delancey and Rivington – certainly is ripe for the picking. Mom-and-pops are nearly all vanished, and swiftly replaced with trendier establishments.
Brooklyn-based “healthy meals” startup Ripe is next, having just announced its forthcoming arrival with a new poster in the windows of the recently-renovated 86 Clinton Street.
Founded by four twenty-something models, all of whom met in the modeling industry, the goal is to “deliver your team clean, nutrient packed food from the best restaurants in New York City.” Target audience is the professional workplace, by offering large, “family-style” portions for folks to share. And it’s priced as you’d imagine – approximately $8 to $15 per person for breakfast, $12 to $18 per person for lunch, and $15 to $35 per person for dinner.
The company apparently counts Vice, Facebook, and Oscar as its clients.
Bonus: this is how 86 Clinton looked just a couple years ago. Before Seagram Properties purchased the building in 2013 for $4.5 million.
