Meallogix® Partners with DoorDash to Fulfill Deliveries for Thousands of Meal Prep Business Owners Across the U.S.
The partnership enables Meallogix to better cater to the thriving meal prep industry, projected to be valued at $11.6 billion by 2022
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Oct. 6,2020) –Meallogix®, the premier meal prep software that automates operations and business processes for meal prep company owners, announced today an exclusive partnership with leading last-mile logistics platform DoorDash, to manage routes and deliveries for the thousands of meal prep business owners who utilize the Meallogix platform.
“The meal prep industry is growing at a staggering pace,” said Meallogix Founder and CEO, Ted Stearns. “A strategic partnership with DoorDash enables our customers to keep up with the surge in demand for prepared meals and meal kits, as it eliminates the need for them to source drivers, plan routes, and deliver meals to millions of customers on a daily basis. It’s a costly, time-consuming task far-removed from what meal prep business owners love doing the most – cooking.”
The average meal prep business owner spends 12 hours per week managing the delivery of their meals. The integration with DoorDash removes this operational barrier for Meallogix customers, allowing their thousands of consumers to seamlessly select desired delivery times and dates directly through the front-end Meallogix platform.
DoorDash powers the last-mile logistics, from picking up pre-scheduled meal orders, to creating routes, and delivering meals.
“Some of the country’s top restaurants, grocers, and retailers use DoorDash Drive to power their last-mile needs,” said Director of DoorDash Drive, Kate Crane. “We are excited to team up with Meallogix to bring our white-label fulfillment technology to their nationwide clientele to grow their business and reach new customers.”
The meal prep industry is in hyper-growth. Before the coronavirus affected the way U.S. consumers dine and shop for food, there were 50 million people participating in meal kit and meal prep subscriptions, Nielsen reported. According to Statista, the meal prep market was valued at $1.6 billion dollars in 2016 and experienced a staggering 300% surge to a $4.65 billion valuation in 2017. By 2022, it’s expected to more than double to $11.6 billion.
While point-of-sale systems have become one of the most indispensable tools for any modern restaurant, meal prep companies have not experienced the same digital disruption. Before Meallogix, meal prep companies operated in the same way restaurants did years ago with spreadsheets and manual tasks.
Meallogix solves the most prevalent and challenging issue all meal prep business owners face by removing operational barriers and digitizing every step of the supply chain, from order intake to ingredient conversion, nutrition label creation, shopping list creation, recipe costing, delivery options, and more. Its dashboard allows meal prep owners to gain insight into critical financials, showing them which menu items drive profits and which do not.
