What does it mean to offer the best meal planning services for a clientele?
At AZTasteBuds, we understand that it’s all about cuisine and food quality, but it’s also all about logistics.
By combining the best ingredients and the best preparation methods with the best effective delivery, we are providing value to our customers every day.
The Time-Cost-Effort Matrix
Here’s one key visual way to look at this that we’ve incorporated on our website, because we think it’s so important.
The time-cost-effort matrix contrasts the practice of ordering out with the practice of shopping for food and preparing your own meal. We then add the additional option of getting meal prep delivered.
First, let’s look at the time axis. We’ve estimated an hour and a half to order, drive to a restaurant, park, pick up food and bring it home. That can be longer if the restaurant is backed up due to unanticipated orders.
We estimated an hour for cooking things yourself, including preparation and making sure the food items are on hand.
By contrast, utilizing a delivered meal prep service takes about five minutes.
As for cost, we’ve estimated $14 plus tip for the average restaurant meal, eight dollars for the average home-cooked meal, and presented our price of around $7.95 for each prepped meal delivery.
Then you look at the effort axis, and you really get some of your big savings:
Again, with your restaurant meal, you have travel time, parking, wait time, meal prep and service. You have to drive, maybe in heavy traffic, since it’s usually around rush hour that dinner time comes.
With home cooking, you have the shopping, preparation and cook time.
With a meal prep delivery service, you just pick it up at your door – and eat!
