Erik presenting Your Nutrition Delivered to the panel of judges

We are extremely excited and proud to announce that one of our beloved client’s, Erik Frank of Your Nutrition Delivered, was the recipient of the $50,000 grand prize at The Big Idea contest put on by The Idea Village as part of New Orleans Entrepreneur Week.

Erik Frank, owner of Your Nutrition Delivered, is a physical trainer and certified nutritionist. He and his team of chefs enable healthy lifestyles by delivering fresh, convenient, and delicious meals to their clients. We love his passion and determination, and we have enjoyed every minute of helping Frank develop his website and promotional items as his company has grown.

Last Friday, Frank was one of the three finalists chosen to deliver a 3-minute pitch to an all-star panelist of judges, including political strategist Mary Matalin, billionare investor Jim Coulter, and former Saints quarterback Archie Manning. Holding up a frozen dinner, Frank proclaimed that, “this is not healthy, this is not natural, and no doctor would ever recommend that their clients eat it.”

Judges were so impressed by both Frank’s pitch and that of another entrepreneur, New Orleans teacher Lorenzo Castillo, that they quickly came up with another $50,000 in donations to award both contestants the $50,000 grand prize.

It has been so rewarding to watch our hardworking client and his deserving business prosper and grow. We wish him our most heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS, and we look forward to continue working with him to help achieve his goals!
