How To Choose a Meal Delivery Service Parts 1-3

September 18, 2019

Part 1: Quality & Customization

I know what y’all are thinking:  if Clean Creations is telling me how to choose a meal delivery service, the answer is, “Choose Clean Creations.” Of course we want your business, but this information reaches far beyond our delivery area in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and the Northshore. We think this information is vital for anyone, anywhere considering a meal delivery service.

Because there are so many services out there today — whether it's a box of cook-your-own-meal ingredients or a meal prep company that delivers fully prepared, heat-and-eat meals — it’s important to ask a few key questions before you sign up.

This is part one in a series of three videos where we outline those questions and explain why all meal delivery services are not equal.

Part 2: Convenience & Cost

Let’s face it: the first thing you probably want to know about a meal delivery service is, “How much does this cost?” When you’re comparing companies, price is important — but you need to be sure you’re comparing apples to apples. There are factors that affect pricing — particularly the quality of ingredients, portion size and frequency of delivery — that are important to understand and consider when you’re choosing a meal delivery service. 

If you’re going to pay more, you want to make sure you’re getting more, right?

For Part 2 of our video series, we cover the questions you need to ask and the information you need to know about the cost and convenience of a meal delivery service plan.

Part 3: Food Safety & Credentials

As a local business delivering in South Louisiana, we know how important it is to know the people handling your food and know where and how your food is prepared. When you’re signing up for delivery with a meal prep company, transparency is vital.

Do you know where your food is prepared and who is preparing it? Do you know if they’re licensed and certified in food safety handling? If you’re comparing meal delivery services, be sure you get the answers and clarity you need to make the best choice.

For Part 3 of our video series, we cover the questions you need to ask to understand who is preparing your food, as well as where and how it is prepared and delivered.
