Gobble Brings 10-Minute Gourmet Dinner Kit Delivery Service to Portland

Service Enables Portland Families to Make Home-Cooked Meals With Fresh Ingredients Without Spending Hours in the Kitchen

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Feb 8, 2016) - Gobble, the creator of gourmet 10-minute dinner kits delivered to your door, announced today that it is now serving the Portland, Oregon metro area. Gobble is the only meal delivery company that handles all the cooking prep work for busy people so they can prepare and serve a gourmet meal at home, using one pan and fresh ingredients, in under 10 minutes.

Gobble differs from other meal kit delivery services in that all ingredients are pre-portioned, pre-chopped, pre-mixed and pre-cooked, making cooking a meal far easier for people who don't always have time to cook from scratch. Faster than takeout, Gobble is also a healthier option.

Initially founded in San Francisco, since early January Gobble has expanded its delivery area throughout the west coast to encompass Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Seattle, Denver and now Portland. 

Ooshma Garg founded Gobble because, as a busy entrepreneur, she didn't have the time to cook healthy meals for herself -- and she was sick of takeout. She found there were a lot of people like her who would love to cook at home but don't always have the time to cook a meal from scratch, even with an ingredient kit.

Gobble menu choices (including vegetarian and kid-friendly options) are prepared by Executive Chef Thomas Ricci, a Michael Mina protégé and previously Chef de Cuisine at LB Steak in San Jose.

According to Garg, Gobble selected Portland as its next expansion city due to the prevalence of busy professionals and families with two working parents, and its great culture for food lovers. "Portland is known for the vibrancy of its food scene, said Garg. "That aspect, combined with demographics and an established delivery and on-demand culture, make it a great place for Gobble. We're excited to help busy Portlanders get back to home cooking again."
