PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2016) - Munchery, the leader in high-quality same-day meal delivery, launches today in the Portland metro area, bringing fresh, seasonal, chef-prepared meals for dinner throughout the Rose City for a fraction of traditional restaurant prices.
Munchery offers unprecedented convenience, flexibility, flavor and quality by managing the entire process across ingredient sourcing, menu conceptualization, food preparation and delivery. For $8.95 per month or $85 per year (with the first month free), customers have access to a changing menu with full ingredient and nutritional breakdowns for each dish. With delivery, a dinner for two is over 50% less than restaurant takeout and other delivery options.
