We finally did it. I am moving forward with my secondary business and growing another stream of income doing something I am passionate about.
I am starting a meal prep business launching in October is the target. I have seen so many of my friends struggle with the other services like Blue Apron and Hello Fresh and I decided there could be a open door for me here. Yes I know the market is saturated with these types of services but I want to take a different approach if the client allows me too.
My service will have 3-4 options and they get to choose. There is the option for us to prep together in your home, me coming to your home and doing it alone, I prepare menu, recipes, grocery list and you prep it on your own, or the custom service where we plan what you want. The first 2 options will be a limit of 15 meals and a hourly minimum and a mix of breakfast, lunch and dinner. As a secondary offering I will grocery shop for your session as well with a fee plus cost of groceries. My mission is when I leave they have the knowledge to be able to do this going forward, maybe they use the menu service or if all else fails I am in their house maybe every 10 days. We will see. The pricing was the hard part but when I look at other services out there I think I have priced it fairly and there will be some bonuses along the way.
What are your thoughts? Would you allow someone in your home to prep your meals for the week? Would you want to learn alongside them for future prepping alone? what about having a girls afternoon and prep some basics like 2-3 meals then go home with 3-4 recipes?
Comment below and let me know your thoughts. I am super excited to launch this locally in Indianapolis and US based for the menu basics. Stay tuned so I can help you and your family eat healthier and stay out of the drive thru’s!
