The brainchild of Milwaukee-area husband-and-wife team Rick Kellow and Beth Kuehl, The GreatPlate came about like many great inventions: They had a problem that needed solving. The couple was frustrated that after their teenagers had friends over to play video games and watch movies, there were cans, cups and bottles strewn all over their floor.
One day in 2010, tired of nagging them about the mess, Kellow sketched out a plate with a raised cavity in the center for a cup. With sales over $10M so far, GreatPlate product line continues to grow. Check out Rick’s journey and the evolution of GreatPlate interview. www.greateplate.com
