Comparison Shopping

One of the biggest reasons I hear for people not to try a Dinner's Done service is the price.  "I can go out to dinner if I want someone to cook for me."  Here's my response to that excuse.

First, let me say that I have nothing against going out to eat.  I love going out.  However, there are those who do it as a way of life.  Wouldn't it save loads of time and money to feel like you're eating out without the long waits, noisy dining rooms and gas expense?  It would be you and your family enjoying fine food and quality time together in the comfort of your own home.

It's really more affordable than you might think.  Here's what a family of four would spend at a mid-level restaurant like Olive Garden.  These prices are from Olive Garden's website for the North Wales, PA location.

Lasagna and Side Salad                                            $19.45
Spaghetti with Meat Sauce and Side Salad              $16.90
Grilled Pork Veneto and Side Salad                         $20.70
Crispy Parmesan Shrimp and Side Salad                 $22.70
15% Tip                                                                    $11.96
TOTAL DINNER FOR 4                                        $91.71
And that doesn't include the drinks, appetizers and desserts that often accompany eating out.  If this family got meals of comparable prices just 5 times, they would spend $458.55.

With Dinner's Done Personal Chef Service, you'll get delicious, customs-made meals that you will love--because they're made especially for you!  Now, what if this same family hired me to make them 4 servings of 5 different entrees and side dishes (a "5x4" service)?  Perhaps their first service would be:
Crab Lasagna with Garlic Italian Bread
BBQ Turkey Meatloaf with Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Marinated Steak with Alabama Baked Beans
Salmon in Potatoes Beurre Blanc with Roasted Asparagus
Baked Chinese Spring Rolls with Vegetable Rice Pilaf
They would pay:
Fee                                           $350.00
First-time Client Discount     -$   25.00
Estimated Grocery Costs         $110.00
TOTAL                                   $435.00
That's $23.55 less than going out to Olive Garden (again, not including drinks, appetziers and dessert).  Isn't that worth it?

Having Dinner's Done make your family's meals can be affordable for you!  It's perfect for busy families who want to put delicious, nutritious meals on the table.  (And who want the added benefit of all the extra time they had been spending on planning and making meals or going out.)  There are service sizes that will meet your needs and budget.  So check out my website for more information and then contact me!
