As food prices soar and dining out becomes a luxury many people can no longer afford, Everytable has launched a collection of to-go family-style meals for its locations in California and New York City.
The California chain, whose mission is to “make nutritious food as affordable and accessible as fast food” launched four under $20 meals, made to feed “up to a family of four.”
All meals are locally sourced and made from scratch. The new additions are Cheesy Tomato Basil Pasta with Chicken; BBQ Chicken with Braised Kale and Mac; Build Your Own Chicken Tacos; and Roasted Salmon with Edamame and Kimchi Sauce. The meals are available at Everytable stores (with the exception of campus and business park locations), where customers can order for in-store pickup or delivery.
"We know that access to healthy food and convenience go hand in hand," said Sam Polk, CEO and founder of Everytable. "Our Family-Style Meals are here to make it easier to enjoy freshly prepared food on a budget.”
The Los Angeles-based company, which launched in 2016, is a multichannel, fresh-prepared food business with a blend of brick-and-mortar stores, monthly, weekly and daily subscriptions services, delivery, and SmartFridges, all supplied by a central kitchen. The meals are priced according to the neighborhood, and customers can order ahead and pick up at their local store.
The company also has a “Pay It Forward” program, where customers can purchase a second meal along with their own for charity. The Pay It Forward meals purchased are consolidated with meals bought by other customers over multiple weeks, and then provided to community charitable organizations to address food security issues.
In 2021 Everytable launched a Social Equity Franchise program, with support from Cal Wellness Foundation, Annenberg Foundation, Common Spirit (formerly Dignity Health), Tarsadia Foundation and Libra Foundation. The goal of the program is to set entrepreneurs from marginalized communities on an accelerated path to potentially owning an Everytable store of their own.
The private company has an estimated worth of $220 million to $330 million, according to Dealroom.co.
