Hello @Susan_Jackewicz! Thanks for the feedback, information and perspectives…
Oh I see. What you are describing is very similar to what I've experienced as an occasional customer of the Blue Apron. What I was envisioning was more prepped meals, designed to be delicious and nutritious. Definitely a challenge, but one that's more of catering prepared foods. My going-in assumption as that that during a time of convalescence, a person would be more excited with less cooking work to do and easier prep.
(In my experience it’s sometimes a bit intimidating to have to cook a dinner that can take a while, involve some unfamiliar techniques, etc. I have to be in the right mood for it to work and it’s discouraged me from doing too much Blue Apron).
But, it sounds like that wasn't a factor for you! Do you think it would have been less compelling if all you had to do was to heat up some prepared meals?
So I think this dynamic around ‘how much should it be prepped/cooked’ would be one of the first things to really delve into.
I think I would also need to understand the costs and benefits of both approaches – prepping the food in advance and delivering it frozen or refrigerated - vs. sending the temperature controlled individual ingredients to be prepared.
Thank you @Susanna! I really appreciate you taking a look. I LOVE your morning click narrative and enjoyed checking out Advice Coach. What a fantastic product you have there. I think using the Roamer to spread the word about Advice Coach and let people try it to get up the learning curve. It can also help family members get used to it and adopt it so they can reinforce the use and adoption! I'd love any opportunity to collaborate ;)
