We recently shared that two ideas have been selected from our Lunch Hour 2 search, and announced the first, Michael Carpanzano. Now, we’re pleased to introduce the inventor behind the second selection, David Gustafson!
A resident of Plymouth, MN (a suburb of Minneapolis), David has been married to his wife Dana for over 23 years and together they have a 15 year old daughter. Though David’s professional background is in marketing, advertising and promotions, his invention dates back to a time when he worked in the restaurant industry. During this time, David noticed a task that was a struggle for many of the servers that he worked with, so he came up with an innovation that would make this task easier. Through market research, David learned that there was an audience for this product not only in restaurants, but for home use, as well. Being a self-professed “invention junky,” David was familiar with Edison Nation and decided to submit his first innovation. That one idea was all it took, as David’s idea moved quickly through the review process and has now been selected by our team!
