Prepared Meal Service Qs & As

Even though prepared meal services are on the rise, some people are wary of giving in and trying the delivery experience. Why so distrustful? What is it about prepared meal services that makes people take a step back? Let's take a look, and see if we can clear up some misconceptions.

On Quality: Q:“You're shipping my meals, so what if something shows up broken or ripped and I can't use it? What then?”

A: At Top Chef Meals, when it comes to shipping & delivery, we offer a 100% Product Quality Guarantee which states: "We guarantee the quality of our products and their delivery in good condition. Because we produce a perishable product, we cannot accept returned food items. We will promptly either replace or credit your Top Chef Meals account for any meals that are damaged, spoiled, or otherwise inedible as a direct result of shipping or delivery." This means even if your meals are somehow damaged during the delivery process, you aren't losing money because we'll replace that meal or credit your account on your next order. It’s that simple! We believe you deserve a quality meal, which should arrive without any hiccups.

Creativity & Likability: Q: “Will I like the food? Or will it be something weird that I'm not used to?”

A:When it comes to Top Chef, our menu is diverse, featuring classic favorites with new twists such as gouda mac'n'cheese or our bison burger, and regular classics such as chicken & veggies or meatballs! We also offer more elaborate dishes such as ahi ahi and filet mignon, but each meal is still simple, recognizable and perfectly balanced. We differ from the competition because we allow you to customize your meals to your liking, down to the last bite.

Nutrition: Q: “Are prepared meal service meals nutritious? I mean, they can't be healthy, right? What are the stats?”

A: First and foremost, remember that prepared meal services (typically) provide perfectly portioned, well-balanced meals. It's true not all meal prepared services provide nutritional information though, and that's a bummer, because you NEED to be aware of what you're eating. We list our meals' nutritional stats on our website, along with the ingredient list, so you always know what you're consuming. We also use products from local farms as much as possible which means you're getting the best of the best. We've even taken things a step further in the health and nutrition department with our pre-selected meal packages designed for weight loss, Paleo diets, diabetics and more!

Affordability: Q: “Prepared meal services are so expensive though! I could never afford that!”

A: Stop right there! On average, other individual meals in prepared meal services cost ~$10 per meal. At Top Chef Meals OUR dishes typically range between $6-$8, which is saving you $2-$4 on every single meal you order! You can get 9 meals from us, ranging from grilled chicken with portobello mushroom sauce to eggplant rollatini, for only $65. Take a look at your last receipt from the grocery store. How much did you spend on ingredients for just one meal? How do we do it? We work with local food purveyors and support local farmers by buying directly from them. With our partnerships we support our local community, while saving dollars on every ingredient we buy, and passing on those savings to our customers.

Shipping Food: Q: “Shipping food? It'll go bad by the time it gets to me or be overheated or...it just sounds like I'm going to catch salmonella.”

A: Fresh food is always refrigerated, and we go an extra mile to ensure quality food safety by freezing our meals the evening before delivery - meaning our customers are getting the healthiest, freshest, and most nutrient-packed meals possible. you only get the BEST quality food when you order with Top Chef Meals!
