    Bodybuilding food delivered to your door....

    Hey guys,

    I was thinking lately and do you think there is a big market out there for Calorie controlled meals (e.g. loads of calories) bulking/bodybuilding meals especially for the older guys who are often in full time jobs and have less time to worry about getting enough calories etc..?

    What if there was a company who said for $18 a day, we will deliver freshly prepared protein rich food to your door, like ready meals, but all fresh ingredients that could just be put in the oven for say 20 minutes..... Just like a chicken tikka masala or pizza ...but alot more healthy!! and great for bulking the build...

    Cheers.

    Jay.

    That's not a bad idea. A BBers version of Jenny Craig.

    However, I would pay $18 for a bodybuilder with a tight tank top and spandex shorts to deliver the food to my house. Hell! He could deliver ice for all I care! As long as he flex for me during the process.

    Meeeeeooooooowwwww!

    Great Idea but I don't think there's enough bodybuilders in one place to sustain such a venture. Maybe cal?

    Yeah I wish I was a celebrity and could afford someone to prepare all my meals to meet my needs. I don't see any way you could provide that for $18 a day.

    $18/day - would be very hard to make a profit unless you had a large volume of clients. Consider you have to account for not only the cost of food, but a commercially licensed kitchen (or convert yours so that it can pass inspections), delivery vans and maintenance and fuel for them, time to prep the food, and time to deliver it.

    I catered when I was in school, and did a lot of jobs for leftovers because I underestimated the cost to myself of everything besides the food. (Though that still was a sweet deal. How many grad students are eating gourmet meals every week?)

    this is actually a pretty decent idea.
    healthy food can get pricey when going ala carte.
    a set monthly fee would be pretty good...

    This is actually an excellent idea and, with the right marketing, I definitely think it could be a successful business. I actually thought of this a while back but my hands have been so full with other ventures that I never seriously explored it.

    To actually do this, there would be a lot of startup costs involved (food storage, preparation, delivery staff, etc), I wouldn't want to go near it without at least $5 million in funding.

    That said, an interesting way to explore the concept with a much less significant barrier to entry would be to partner with an existing delivery service (I'm in NYC, so I'd probably talk to FreshDirect). You could try to cut a deal to use their infrastructure and staff to prepare/deliver meals that your staff would design. You'd handle the marketing, customer relations, meal design, web properties, customer acquisition, etc... for either a revenue share or operating fees. Basically you want someone who can do all the costly boring stuff as a "private label" for your company. Creating a dependancy like this would obviously dimish the overall opportunity but it would, in my opinion, be the smarest way to test the waters. After all, the brand is where the vast majority of the value would lie so you could always establish your own infrastructure once you had a large enough customer base to support it.

    Okay, that's it for now. If anyone actually goes out and does this they'd better cut me in for half a percent at least

    5 million start up cost? are you high? 5 Million dollars if you're delivering in a ferrari, have Bobby Flay doing your cooking, and package everything in gold.... this is something that could easily be started up from home with the right space and equipment, marketed, and be running in 6 months for under $100,000. From there with a good enough business plan and management you can expand rapidly with just your income.
