Q: Have you ever reviewed the various food delivery services?A: This question was first put to me by a member of a group I was addressing, and my immediate answer was something along the lines of “have not, will not.” With four services in the Charleston area now bringing restaurant meals direct to customers’ doorsteps (not counting the grocery couriers who can browse a hot bar for you), the logistics of such a project seemed daunting. How could I possibly control for all of the variables introduced by different restaurants, different days, different dishes and different drivers?On further reflection, though, it seemed like research worth undertaking, even if the study had a few scientific flaws. So while I wouldn’t consider it a full-fledged review, I did try out all of the available delivery services — and came away with a pretty clear conclusion.Currently, downtown Charleston’s in-home diners have their pick of Order on the Way, which … [Read more...] about We tested 4 food delivery services in downtown Charleston and found a winner

Tracy Schuhmacher and Sarah Taddeo Rochester Democrat and Chronicle Published 12:00 p.m. UTC Aug 16, 2018 In a busy household with three teenagers and two adults working full time, Susan Spencer has found the restaurant delivery service Grubhub to be a boon for her family. At least once a week they order dinner from a restaurant; they have plenty of choices within a reasonable distance of their Irondequoit home. “The food is great. It comes to us on time. It’s exactly what we ordered. It’s a great solution for our household’s needs," Spencer said. Spencer is part of a growing trend of people who want to eat food from restaurants but enjoy it at home. “It’s a lot to try to schedule a night out at a restaurant as a group," she said. The convenience of summoning prepared food to your doorstep with the click of a button is causing the online delivery industry to expand at a dizzying rate. More than 78 million people use … [Read more...] about Food delivery apps are impacting your favorite restaurants, taking bite out of profits

If meal delivery service companies could package the aromas their recipes create, and somehow relay those to first-time users, I'm convinced sales of meal kits would be even hotter than they are now. X Meal kits — recipes and ingredients packaged in precise quantities, usually shipped to your home by companies like Blue Apron (APRN), Amazon (AMZN) and Walmart (WMT) — already have a curiosity appeal, despite plenty of reasons not to like them. They take considerable work. The prices aren't exactly alluring. And like any new industry, several bugs remain in the system. Yet many people try them. And once you get a whiff of your first precisely concocted meal, it's all over. I've made meals from cookbooks as well as from scratch, and they've never smelled this good — even when I followed the recipe to a T. With meal kits, the appealing scent was always there — without fail. I began to wonder if they were manufactured. These aromas put a rose-colored tint … [Read more...] about Will Investors Eat Up The Fresh New Industry of Meal Kits?

Ethan Kahn/THE REVIEW Members of the Full Circle team prepping this week’s meals to be delivered to customers Tuesday morning. BY ETHAN KAHNSTAFF REPORTER For the past five months, Chef Robbie Jester of Stone Balloon and his business partner, Tim Bolt, have been running Full Circle Food, a pre-made healthy meal delivery service. In that time, Jester says they have gone from selling 18 meals a week to 400. As their subscription base has grown, Bolt and Jester have set their sights on the university in hopes of serving the campus community. Nestled in a quiet kitchen in Landenberg, Pennsylvania, Full Circle Food sources local ingredients for pre-cooked and packaged meals. According to Jester, their approach both separates them from competitors and addresses a growing demand on campus. “Especially when you compare … [Read more...] about Food Delivery service ‘Full Circle’ coming to campus – The Review
