After 2 1/2 years, a local company that has helped make meal prep a whole lot easier for busy moms in the Rochester, Minnesota area has announced that they will be preparing their last order on Thursday, July 15th.

Meal prep company in Rochester, Minnesota has announced that they are closing.

Ask any mom what one of the biggest stressors is on their list, they will probably share that making a meal every single day for the family to enjoy is sometimes just too much.  Personally, I don't enjoy cooking so making meals magically happen is a huge chore, and sometimes the fam just ends up eating cereal.  It is fine...it is probably better than what I would make anyways and I know they would eat it.

One of the places that I contacted when I started working full-time was Busy Bee Meal Prep.  I knew that life was going to be a bit much while I figured out how to do the whole "balance" thing and getting help in a few of the daily tasks of being a mom was on my radar.  Unfortunately, busy moms everywhere are losing a helpful resource.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that our last day of meal prep will be Thursday, July 15. We will not be accepting any orders after Monday, July 12.
We want to thank all of our amazing customers who have been with us these past two-and-a-half years, you helped us to make our dreams of running this business come true. If you're looking for a similar local meal prep service, please reach out to us and we can refer you to someone.
With gratitude,
