Podcast: Diving In With DiningIn Founder Michael Hackel

If you lived in the Greater Boston area from 1987-2015, you’re probably familiar with food delivery company DiningIn.com.

The company was a pioneer in the food delivery industry and it became a nationally recognized brand, starting in Boston, then expanding to Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia and the Twin Cities. The company’s growth peaked when founder Michael Hackel sold DiningIn.com to food delivery behemoth Grubhub in 2015 as part of a deal worth a reported $80 million.

On this episode, we tell the story of how Hackel went from an unsure Boston kid to a successful entrepreneur. We also hear about what obstacles he faced on the way to selling his business and how he’s spending his time off now. We also talk with Hackel’s attorney and advisor, Bernkopf Goodman’s Todd Goldberg.
