Tri Tran

As Principal and CTO at Applico, Tri is responsible for the company’s product development and engineering effort and is a member of the executive team. He has over 17 years of startup experience, leading business, operations and engineering teams.

In 2011, Tri co-founded Munchery, an on-demand meal delivery service that delivers a variety of nourishing, affordable, chef-cooked meals right to your door. A former software engineer and father of two, Tri came up with the idea for Munchery after struggling to find the time to cook healthy food for his family while balancing a busy work schedule. Munchery launched in San Francisco and now operates in San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, Portland, New York, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego. Its food is also shipped across all 9 states in the West coast.

Prior to founding Munchery, he led engineering teams at Convio and GetActive Software (acquired by Convio). Tri received his Masters and Bachelors degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and came to the United States from Vietnam when he was 11 years old.
