How It Works

Dinnerly is a meal kit subscription box that delivers easy recipes to your door weekly. Members receive a minimum of 2 meals (4-servings) per week and each serving is $11.99 for dinner. Members are able to choose if they want dinner or lunch from Gobble. The two are separate plans, so you can’t mix and match the type of meals you receive.

Gobble also enables members to skip a delivery or have meal kits delivered every two weeks. The company strives to be flexible to help suit their customer’s needs and busy lifestyles.

Signing up for Gobble is simple:

  • Click “get started” on the home page
  • Select your plan
  • Set your location
  • Review your delivery details
  • Insert your payment information
  • Choose your meals for the week

The lunch plan differs from the dinner plan slightly. Every week, Gobble will send 3 lunch kits (makes 6 lunches) that you make in 90 minutes on the weekend. The price per serving varies from $7.98 to 11.47, depending on the choices you make for protein, veggies, and starch. The lunch plan is a pre-paid monthly plan of 24 lunches and leftover lunches roll over to the next month. The subscription also auto-renews monthly. These meals also change weekly and are customizable, giving members a delicious lunch they will look forward to.

What Makes Gobble Unique?

Gobble takes meal kit delivery service to the next level because they cut out the prep work. All the ingredients are marinated, chopped, peeled, etc. so all members have to do is cook it. Because all the ingredients are prepped already, each recipe only takes 15 minutes and can be made in one pan. The one-pan meal helps reduce clean up times as well.

This weekly meal subscription box features recipes that change every week. Every week Gobble also has options that are friendly for different dietary restrictions. Gobble’s meal subscription also now has a lunch plan, making it an option for those who want to meal-prep on the weekends. These meals take about 90 minutes to prep for the whole week. They can be stored in Tupperware and reheated at work.

Company History

Gobble’s pre-prepped meal-kits take meal subscriptions to the next level. CEO Ooshma Garg launched Gobble at the age of 29. She already had another startup called Anapata, a job match service. Garg sold Anapata to LawWerx in 2011 so she could focus all her time on Gobble, her second startup.

Gobble began on Craigslist as an ad. The ad was seeking chefs willing to create home-cooked meals for Garg and friends for $8 a plate. Garg was then delivering meals with her own car. Eventually, Gobble raised 1.2 million in investor funding. The appeal? The lack of preparation needed. People are paying for a great meal they can make in a single pan.

Gobble was born in San Francisco but quickly spread to other western states such as Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Idaho, and Utah. Today, Gobble serves the majority of the continental U.S. Gobble also employees successful industry people such as Michelin star chefs and former Starbucks and Blue Apron executives.
