Scrumpt, the balanced lunch for children startup that debuted at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco in 2015, just lately released lunch meal kits with fresh food. Prior to, Scrumpt was only centered on non-perishable foodstuff and necessary mothers and fathers to supplement the lunches with products from home.
“We were not providing wholly on usefulness or nutrition,” Scrumpt co-founder Bri James told me. “There was even now the barrier of getting to go to the grocery keep.”
Now, mothers and fathers can use Scrumpt as a one particular-cease store for their kids’ lunches one particular week at a time. Scrumpt’s spring menu delivers fourteen solutions, like a pretzel slider with turkey, roasted hen wraps and a fruit, yogurt and granola parfait. Including shipping and delivery, one particular week’s well worth of lunches comes out to $36. With a subscription, Scrumpt provides to you just about every weekend.
Scrumpt handles all of the shipping and delivery in-property, which is a reasonable strategy for now. James said it is “totally doable” to take care of any where from 500 to one,000 deliveries for each week, but I would picture that, at increased scale, Scrumpt could need to have to partner with a shipping and delivery organization or hire far more than the 6 persons it does presently.
Scrumpt, which is presently bootstrapped, is only operating in the SF Bay Spot, with programs to expand to Southern California, and eventually nationwide. James acknowledges that “getting clean food stuff throughout the nation is logistically elaborate,” but is wanting to expand nationally “sooner alternatively than later.” As Scrumpt will get closer to that level, James said, the business will search for funding.
