It’s New Orleans: Out to Lunch

Hosted ByPeter Ricchiuti

Tulane University A.B. Freeman School of Business finance professor Peter Ricchiuti holds court over lunch at Columns in Uptown New Orleans. Peter's lunch guests are New Orleans business people, from startups to CEO's, from artists to tech entrepreneurs, musicians to movers-and-shakers. New Orleans is on everybody's list as a great place to party but it's also on many lists of the best place to start a business. Peter's deeply knowledgable and equally levity-laden approach to business conversation neatly makese sense of the Crescent City's contradictions.

When You Need It Right Now… – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

New businesses are springing up in New Orleans all the time. Some of them you may not have heard of. Others you can’t miss.

There’s a good chance you’ve seen an MHM Urgent Care clinic open up somewhere near you. There are currently 13 of them in and around New Orleans.

Dr. Mignonne Mary is the founder and principal physician at The Remedy Room – a different kind of urgent care, and wellness clinic, on St Charles Avenue. Dr. Mary specializes in Infusion Therapy: vitamins and minerals are delivered by IV for rehydration, detoxification, and other wellness therapy.

Allegedly, a moderate amount of alcohol daily can be preventive medical care. When you run out of your medicine you can now use Drizly – an app-based liquor delivery business.

Drizly’s New Orleans Market Manager Evan Mactavish is at the Out to Lunch table today too. 

You can be a laid back New Orleanian 23 hours of the day but when you need it right now, Mignonne, Keith, and Evan have got you covered.
