Garbage Plate - the new business model

by: Adam

I love business in all shapes and forms.  You can always come up with a unique idea, but even better when you work different products into each other to create one.    As an example….you take Peanut Butter (great on it’s own) then you add the Chocolate, pt it in a cup and BOOM you have a new product, a peanut butter cup.

I’m in Rochester, NY and having a wonderful evening with a client of mine.  I had a few drinks and was getting some munchies, and my friend Patrick says “I got the solution for you”. He orders a “Garbage Plate”.  This was a combination of the following:

  • Hamburger Meat
  • Hot dog
  • Macaroni Salad
  • Beans
  • Home Fries
  • Covered with cheese and hot sauce.

You have a product.  I wanted to throw up, and was going to burst…but it was SOOOOO good.  I’ve consumed over 20,000 calories in less than 20 minutes.

The message here is that you can make a business model out of ANYTHING.  Be creative and open your mind to the opportunities and you can make it work.
