Founder & CEO

Rachael Lake, Founder & CEO

Rachael Lake grew up in a small Maine town where international foods were limited. During her first job as an investment banking analyst in Manhattan, exposure to global restaurants opened up an exciting new world.

After surviving the financial crisis of 2008, she decided to recharge her batteries by traveling, taking cooking classes, and organizing food tours for friends. Finally, while in business school she discovered her calling - to bring international dishes to friends and family back home. Takeout Kit was born.

Rachael holds an MBA from UCLA Anderson School of Management where she studied entrepreneurship and marketing. She also holds a BA in Economics from Wellesley College. Prior to founding Takeout Kit, Rachael spent 6 years in the finance industry at BNP Paribas, PIMCO, and Capital Group.
