Munchery Expands East Coast Presence, Launches Today in Washington D.C.

Same-Day Meal Delivery Serves up Fresh, Chef-Inspired Meals to the Nation's Capital

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Jun 13, 2016) - Munchery, the beloved San Francisco-based meal delivery brand, launches today in Washington, D.C., bringing its daily rotating menu of prepared entrees, sides, kids' meals, drinks and desserts to diners for a fraction of traditional restaurant prices. With this new offering, D.C. metro-area residents have an ideal solution for the universal problem of "what's for dinner?" that meets a diverse range of taste preferences and dietary requirements.

"I founded Munchery because I needed an easier way to feed my family a healthy dinner during the busy week," said Tri Tran, Munchery CEO and co-founder. "A city of busy commuters, Washington, D.C. is the perfect market to showcase our value: we're making flavorful, high-quality meals affordable, accessible and convenient when there isn't time to grocery shop and cook a full meal."

Munchery offers unprecedented flavor, flexibility, quality and convenience by managing the entire process from ingredient sourcing and menu conceptualization, to food preparation and delivery. For $8.95 per month or $85 per year (with the first month free), customers have access to Munchery's chef-driven, seasonal menu, which features dishes catering to numerous dietary needs, including gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free and nut-free options, and lists full ingredient and nutrition information.

Munchery Ready-to-Eat Meals ($7-15 per entree) are fully cooked and arrive chilled to ensure maximum freshness. Quick heating instructions guarantee a delicious meal within minutes that tastes just as the chef intended. No more overcooked salmon fillets or cold pizza. The Ready to Eat menu includes a full lineup of entrees, sides, kids' meals, desserts and drinks across a variety of cuisines, and rotates daily so there's always something new to try.

Menu highlights at launch include Kalbi Steak Lettuce Cups ($13.95), Southern-Style Shrimp and Grits ($10.95) and Italian Veggie Burger ($9.95).

All Munchery meals can be scheduled for delivery from up to ten days in advance until 9 a.m. the morning of the desired date. Delivery is $2.95 flat fee with no minimum order necessary. Visit Munchery.com or download the iOS or Android mobile app to view up-to-date menus.
