Meal Delivery Service in Canberra?

By studesmac 27 July 2013 23

No pun intended but I’m looking for feedback on the level of interest in a meal delivery service for Canberra households and workplaces.

The concept is straightforward:  via an online store we we will offer a changing selection of main meals, starters, desserts, catering packs for delivery direct to homes/workplaces.  Meals are fresh (not frozen), made locally, chef-prepared (without being too cheffy), tasty and wholesome – typically the kind of meals you would like to/should eat but perhaps lack the time, interest or skill to prepare yourself.  No contracts or minimum period requirements.  We operate from a commercial kitchen with a food safety plan and refrigerated delivery vehicles.  Locally owned – not a franchise.

What we would like to know:  would Canberrans use such a service, how often, how many menu choices, at what cost, and any other comments – yay or nay

What’s Your opinion?

It’s probably not going to be particularly healthy – unless you’re comparing it to Maccas. Restaurant quality implies to me that it’s restaurant food, which is usually tasty and rich and delicious and something you do as a treat or special occasion. Not often overly “healthy”.

To the OP, there’s a place that does a similar thing in Sydney. They slow cook one meal that changes each time. $10 delivered or $9 pick up. https://www.facebook.com/HungryMondays or http://www.hungrymondays.com.au/ for non Facebookians.

Great idea, all the best with it.

For those who think it’s ‘sad’ that some people would use this service, my cousin lost his arm in an accident a year ago and lives alone – therefore he finds it extremely difficult to cook a meal with one hand. He orders in much of the time, and a service like this would be great for him.

Some people just don’t cook well – me included. It’s not a character flaw, we all have poorer skills in something!

Obviously I didn’t have your cousin in mind when I said this proposal seems sad. I just meant that the time pressures on people often take away the ability to enjoy simple pleasures, and we seem to spend so much more money on basic things.

I wonder how much cooking programs have created unrealistic ideas of what we should be eating. The fixation on ‘cooked’ food interests me too.

OP did ask us to give our opinions for or against.

I really hope the business gets off the ground and works for you.

Some suggestions for the market here in Canberra: do have proper vegetarian options (and vegan); have gluten free options; and use free-range eggs.
