Our customers asked and we answered… We’re so excited to announce the launch of 30-Minute Meals to all of our customers! Our chefs designed new meals that take 30 minutes or less to make, so customers can spend less time cooking and more time enjoying delicious meals around the table. This has been a huge cross-team effort, involving the Culinary, Meal Experience, Customer Insight, Product, Engineering, Creative, Analytics and Marketing teams. We’re looking forward to more cross-functional collaborations like this as we move through our exciting new product pipeline. Make sure to keep an eye out for the '30-Minute Meal' badge on upcoming menus!
