Ryan Reisdorf, founder of Placemat and Type 1 diabetic, began his journey in the food industry while studying nursing and metabolic disease at Belmont University in Nashville, TN. Believing that connecting healthy food with genuine hospitality was the key to better community health outcomes and more sustainable healthcare. In the spare time between class and clinical he built the Placemat brand assembling a team of foodies who shared the passion for healthy food and started creating memorable dining experiences from scratch, in the comfort of guests own kitchens.
Prevent the problem. Change the process. Disrupt the norm.
As Ryan progressed through his nursing studies at Belmont University, Ryan couldn't shake the lingering question: why was more emphasis not placed on preventative measures, rather than treatment? Despite the lack of urgency or interest from some of his professors and peers, he remained persistent in this curiosity, driven by the idea of preventing disease and chronic illness through meals. This fascination led him to create Placemat, a brand dedicated to connecting genuine hospitality and on-demand food experiences for overall well-being.
