Hey everyone i am new to the forums and very excited to take a look around and see what everyone is about here.
The reason for my post is, I own a company here in the KC Area called YNK Meals, we are a Gluten free meal prep / delivery company focused on very high quality food, made fresh, and portion control. Helping people, eat CLEAN and HEALTHY no matter the turns that life throws at you. We have 3 choices for meal programs
1) Traditional. We still use the highest quality ingredients, and gluten free meal prep.
2) Paleo - Common and popular with cross-fit training, known as the "caveman diet" having everything BUT the following--dairy, grains, legumes, processed oils, and refined sugar.
3) Low Carb - just as it states, no to low carbs. we have awesome alternatives to rice and quinoa to keep you on the Low Carb path.
We deliver to your house once a week. and are very excited to hear from you!

This.

Also, if you are trying to attract a particular crowd of people (ie crossfitters, non-gmo/gluten whatever) you should probably at least list the macronutrient values for each meal. There's nothing other than a description of the food, which anybody that is ACTUALLY serious about health/nutrition, would want to know all of these things.

Now if you're looking to cater to the bandwagon glutenfree/gmo free dieters/stay at home moms, you're on the right track. They could give a shit about macros as long as you list a buzz word in the ingredient list.

So this is just like that organic website from last week, only more expensive?

My wife and I spend about $75 a week at the grocery store.

I seriously don't understand the hype of these "meals on wheels" companies. Are we becoming that lazy? What am I missing?

Brix, its not really a hype, we do healthy food, with portion size in mind, some people are busy/work and like to keep with their diet and usually go out to lunch anyways, $10 for lunch is not high at all. You go to applebees and get food, its not healthy, you dont know everything thats going in it, things are canned. and you will spend $12-15 after tip. So its for people focused on fitness goals and sometimes dont have time to prep everything.

Nutritional info is not asking too much.


Unlike what you're offering, you can get Applebee's nutritional info

http://www.applebees.com/~/media/doc...ional_Info.pdf


I have nothing against you or what you are doing, and I wish you success. But If you are unwilling to disclose the nutritional facts on your meals, I'd suggest marketing your service as just that, a convenience.

This, seems more like "convenience".

Quick calculations, for a person wanting to have "prepped" food, is 620 a month for what I would call a minimum of daily nutrients. That's only 5 days a week of meal prep. That's catering to a very high end client IMO, with an abundance of disposable income.

What is the market like? I know Catered Fit has a lower price on their products, along with actual macronutrient breakdowns. If you're wanting to do more than be a fly by night business, I'd suggest divulging more information about the meals. The plans seem like one meal, with 3 variations, all slight to say the least. And if you're running a business like that, you should know there are no Breakfast/lunch/dinner. It's meal 1/2/3/4/5. Snacks don't cut it in the fitness/health world.

This isn't bashing your business, but you came to the fit section, full of (sometimes) people that are well educated in nutrition. So consider what we say constructive criticism.
