Laguna Niguel, California (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
Launched in August 2012 and founded by former stay-home-mom Nancy Kerr, Eco-Eats Partyware set out to solve that impossible balancing act of trying to hold a plate of food, a drink, and trying to eat at the same time; or, the problem of losing track of ‘whose drink is whose’ on a counter or table. Eco-Eats’ biodegradable, tree-free and plastic-free product Plate-A-Cup allows party-goers to hold their plate and drink in one hand -- freeing the other hand to plate food, eat, shake hands, or pocket a business card. In the short time since the business was launched, Plate-A-Cup has sold thousands of plates on Amazon.com and quickly made its way into events such as the Los Angeles Epicurean Festival, Scottsdale Culinary Festival, Chicago Whiskey Festival, OC Fashion Week, Paso Robles Collective CAB Gala, and J. Lohr winery events, to name a few.
Plate-A-Cup will continue to bring ease and convenience to eating, drinking and mingling on June 23-24 at the annual Eater Young Guns awards party where 16 up and coming rising stars of the culinary world come from across the US to celebrate and join the elite class of Young Guns.
Jen Liebow, Marketing & Events Manager of Eater was asked why she reached out to Eco-Eats Partyware and Leibow explains, “We produce many tasting events throughout the year and always hate to see our guests struggling with drinks while trying to enjoy food. After searching around for options to remedy this issue, we came across Plate-A-Cups. These were the only ones on the market that seem to accommodate all types of glasses and bottles, not just wine stems, plus are sturdy enough to handle anything our chefs serve up and are eco-friendly.”
The Eater Young Gun event will take place at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), starting with the public event on Sunday, June 23rd, followed by a private industry insider grand gala event on Monday, June 24th. This will give the public the opportunity to meet the chosen 16 out of 3,000 hotshots of tomorrow’s culinary world and sample their food, including a three hour open bar.
