MealPal Launches in Seattle
MealPal, a subscription service that provides members with affordable daily lunch options from hundreds of restaurants, has launched in Seattle. Through the MealPal website or mobile app, 150 local restaurants offer one dish per day to subscribing members.
Members can browse meals available at restaurants near them or filter meals by cuisine and ingredients. By pre-ordering the night before or morning of and scheduling a pickup time, working professionals can skip lines, save money and get the most out of their lunch break. Participating restaurants increase efficiencies and revenue during the peak hours.
MealPal is offering Seattle members two different subscriptions for lunch: a 20-meal plan for $5.59 per meal and a 12-meal plan for $5.99 per meal. With a subscription, MealPal members can select lunch from over 150 restaurants offering thousands of meals. Using MealPal, consumers will save more than 40% over the exact same dishes that cost $10 to $15 when ordered off the restaurant's menu.
Along with the Seattle launch, MealPal is rolling out WorkPals, an office-driven social feature that lets users see what co-workers are reserving. MealPal members can coordinate their lunch pickups with their colleagues and see the most popular selections in their office. To date, over 80% of MealPal customers have joined the program because of a referral from a friend or colleague.
