Get the Biggest Bang for Your Buck with Home Food Delivery
I’m sure by now everyone has seen the ads for the nationally recognized meal-kit delivery services that send you all of the ingredients to make two to three meals a week, right?
Well, did you know that these companies spend upwards of $140 million a year in marketing their products?
According to an article written by Quartz, Blue Apron spent $144 million in marketing in 2016 and $60.6 million in the first 3 months of 2017 alone. Food, packaging, and weekly shipping costs also made up a bulk of Blue Apron’s expenses.
So, how do Blue Apron and other nationally recognized meal-kit delivery services make enough money to even have a budget like that?
Simple, the customer pays for it.
So, if you’re a current customer of a meal-kit delivery service or have been considering trying it, here’s a few reasons why you might want to try a Home Food Delivery Service for convenient home food delivery instead.
1. A Bigger Bang for your Buck
Most meal-kit delivery services costs somewhere between $9.99 - and $13.94 for a serving that you make at home yourself. Keep in mind, this is just the starting price and most restaurant meals cost about the same, and they even make it for you!
Here’s how they compare for a 3 meals a week service for two adults:
|Service||Starting Price||Price per serving|
Here’s how they compare for a 2 meals a week service for a family:
|Service||Starting Price||Price per serving|
With any of the meal-kit delivery services, you’re usually paying for only two to three meals a week. With a home food delivery service like Five Star Home Foods, your meats, poultry, seafood, vegetables, and fruit can be used in any recipe you desire - any day of the week - in way more than just 2 meals!
With Five Star, you get twice the service for half the price.
The price per serving for Five Star Home Foods’ Delivery service is at least HALF of the price that you would find from a meal-kit service. So for about the same weekly price, you can make around 4-6 meals a week with Five Star’s items. A huge bang for your grocery shopping buck!
So, how do we keep it so affordable?
Since we’re a local Home Food Delivery Service as opposed to a national brand, we buy more directly from the farms and are able to give you a lower price for high quality food because we’re not spending millions on marketing or weekly cold shipping and packaging materials. Our goal is to simply provide you with healthy food in a convenient way that will save you time and money.
Five Star’s exclusive lifetime discounts can help you save up to 45% on your food orders and you can even earn an entire food order for FREE (a $1,800 value!) through our the referral program. Meal-kit delivery services don’t give discounts that large. Five Star prefers to invest in our customers to spread the word about our great service instead of spending millions on wasteful mass advertising.
2. More Variety (we’re talking nearly 300 items!)
When you subscribe to the weekly meal-kit services, you are able to choose from about 6 - 10 different recipes on the menu each week. But what happens when you stumble upon a recipe that you’re just dying to try, like Healthy Sweet & Sour Chicken? You can’t use the chicken in your meal-kit service to make that!
Or what happens when you order a recipe for something you’re in the mood for one week and by the time it arrives you’re not feeling it... or you wait a day to two to make your meal and everything spoils. What a waste of money!
With a home food delivery service, you have the convenience of a grocery store in your freezer. With nearly 300 all-natural and organic items on the menu, you have the option to make anything you want, when you want it, and aren’t stuck picking from a few predetermined recipes.
3. No More Complicated and Time Consuming Recipes
Usually, someone chooses to subscribe to a meal-kit service because they liked the convenience of it, however in the end, it wasn’t as quick and simple as they thought it would be. The steps are confusing and the meal takes much longer to make than it initially said.
Whereas with Five Star Home Foods, we deliver just the basics (like your protein, vegetables, fish, and fruit) so you can choose to make the recipe as simple or as complex as you like. We’re not some trendy fad that popped up, we’ve been serving our customers since 1994.
Busy day? Throw a convenience item in the oven like the Chicken Breast Florentine.
Lazy Sunday and you feel like making your grandma’s homemade meatloaf recipe? No problem! The ground beef is waiting for you conveniently in your freezer.
As a local home delivery service for counties in Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland, Five Star Home Foods makes it easy to provide your family with all-natural meats and organic vegetables and juices at a very affordable price. No fluff - just healthy food that you and your family will love.
So, before you try a meal-kit delivery service, why not make the smarter choice and try a home food delivery service instead.
