For nearly six months a food service called The Foodery has been in the Boston area, making and delivering restaurant quality meals that have locally sourced, organic ingredients.
I was unfamiliar with this new business founded by college friends turned entrepreneurs, John Bauer and Mike Speights, but I love their idea of making good, nutritious food more accessible and thought their business model was unique to Boston.
Their goal is to help people who want to eat healthy but don’t have the time, skill or inclination to make these kinds of meals. The business model is very straight forward, but all that convenience and the quality of the ingredients comes at a cost – approximately $24 per meal – so for those on a tight budget this is probably not feasible. However for professionals on the go who find themselves eating out at restaurants regularly this provides a slightly more affordable option and certainly more healthy with all meals not only nutritionally balanced but also capping out at 550 calories.
