Recently a popular magazine in the pet industry published an article regarding the trends they predict will influence the pet food industry, specially the dog food industry. When reading this article, I found it so interesting that we were already doing many of the items and the ones we do not currently offer are in the works for 2018.
This new blog series- 2018 Food Trends at Your Pet Chef, will review the key trends discussed in the article noted above and how Your Pet Chef is currently already ahead of the curve or will be leading the pack with new product releases.
The first entry in the series is Home Delivery. We consider Home Delivery a key factor in our service. Your Pet Chef offers 2 types of delivery:
Personal Delivery to your home. This delivery is for our local clients that live within 75 miles of the Chicago-land area. Our frozen food bars are placed in reusable, insulated tote bags and delivered to the door or garage. Many deliveries are made right into a freezer located in a garage or basement. We’re more than happy to restock! We also take personal delivery up a notch with “Person to Person” delivery. Sometimes our customers live outside of our automobile delivery zone so we work together to find a place where the delivery can be made. This place may be a parking lot, a highway exit rest stop, or even the work place. Our deliveries are made every 2 or 4 weeks with an email confirming delivery time sent the day before delivery.
Personal Shipments made directly to your home. This delivery option is for all of our customers located outside of our delivery zone. Our Freeze Dried food bars are light weight and ship very inexpensively across the United States. We try to send tracking information when available and are looking at systems to make this more efficient.
Are there any items you would like us to include with our delivery program? We’d love to hear your input! Please let us know here.
Thanks for reading this blog post and stay tuned for tomorrow’s entry – Part 2: 2018 Food Trends at Your Pet Chef - Foods with Preventative Benefits.
