It isn't always easy to eat healthy on a regular basis. It takes a combination of meal planning and time and dedication; three things that not everyone has. That's where fit-flavors comes in, making fresh prepared meals for health conscious, busy people across parts of Missouri and Illinois in the United States.
All of the menu items are nutritionally balanced, made with high-quality ingredients, and are available for pickup/dine-in at one of five fit-flavors locations or delivered directly to your door. The seasonally rotating menu includes options for all sorts of dietary needs: gluten-free, dairy-free, low-carb, and vegetarian options. It all looks and tastes delicious.
Mouth-watering highlights include the Chicken Fried Rice with stir fry veggies, brown rice, edamame, gluten free soy sauce, and sriracha (pictured above). Or the Taco Stuff Pepper, with ground beef and salsa, cilantro lime rice, pico de gallo and fiery gouda cheese. Got a sweet tooth? Check out the Snickerdoodle Peanut Butter Balls made with natural peanut butter mixed with whey protein powder and crunchy high-fiber cereal.
fit-flavors was founded in 2009 by Jillian Tedesco, who has a deep knowledge of health and food. With over 10 years of personal training and nutrition experience as well as a culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute, she set out to make St. Louis a healthier city — one person and one meal at a time. “It was all about making people's lives easier and healthier,” says Jillian. “As a trainer, I constantly heard from everyone that they wanted to eat better, but didn't have the time to do it.”
Saving time is important to fit-flavors, not just for their customers, but internally as well. One of the ways fit-flavors saves time is by planning their deliveries using EasyRoutes delivery management app for Shopify.
"What used to take 3 to 4 hours to map out and print 100+ deliveries now takes us 30 minutes," says Shawn Montgomery, Distribution Supervisor. “The app is a game changer when it comes to building routes."
EasyRoutes has all the tools businesses need to handle their deliveries in-house — from route optimization, to picking and packing, to driver dispatch and customer tracking. All users have to do is select which orders need to be delivered, and EasyRoutes guides them through the rest, generating optimized local delivery routes with itemized inventories in seconds.
One aspect of EasyRoutes fit-flavors finds particularly helpful is its simplicity. “It does all the thinking for you! All you have to do is select the orders, let the app know how many drivers and how long you want each driver's route to be and the app does the rest,” says Shawn. “Our drivers simply come in to work in the morning, scan their QR code for their designated route and the user friendly app guides them through their route with ease.”
For delivery, customers order from fit-flavors online store up to 72 hours in advance so the fit-flavors team can prepare their meal from scratch (like everything else they make). The meals arrive packed in an insulated box with plenty of ice packs. Just heat them for 1-2 minutes in the microwave and enjoy! What you do with the rest of your time is up to you!
