Tampa resident launches ReBuilt Meals, feeds local families for free during pandemic


The resolve and drive of local business owners never fails to amaze us. The latest to catch our attention (and appetite) is ReBuilt Meals, a chef-prepared meal and delivery service that launched in the Tampa Bay region just a few short years ago. During these difficult times this meal and delivery service has provided peace of mind at home.

President and CEO Brandon Assaf and his team have developed a meal creation and disbursement plan that can satisfy the needs of many different lifestyles including: keto, gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, and much more.

In April, and continuing through this pandemic, Assaf and his team have sponsored several families in Tampa Bay and provided them with free meals to ease the burden so many are carrying.

The state of Florida is slowly reopening, but residents are still advised to proceed with cautions. Social distancing guidelines are still in place, and mass testing for COVID-19 has only just launched in Tampa. The ReBuilt Meal Plan provides ease of mind for residents who would rather avoid the trip to the grocery store, and who are also looking to cut down on general food waste.  

ReBuilt Meals are delivered in reduced oxygen packaging to increase their shelf life. The film that covers the containers uses 98% less plastic than conventional prepared meal containers with plastic lids, and the containers themselves are made by Go Green Packaging, who is the industry leader reducing plastic waste. 

In April, Rebuilt introduced bar codes on to their labels. The barcodes allow clients to scan and automatically log their meal in my fitness pal app.

The meal plans are delivered weekly, and are waiting at your doorstep before you wake up. Home delivery takes place between 11pm-5am  — and waking up to a readymade breakfast at my front door is total 2020 goals.  

The plan itself runs week to week, and subscribers are able to pause, change, or cancel their plan at any time in case they’re going to be out of town for work or leisure. 

ReBuilt is the largest growing chef-prepared meal delivery service in the area. Not surprisingly, they are highly-rated by locals (4.9 on Google Reviews) for their quality meals and exceptional customer service. View all of the available meals plans on the ReBuilt website

The ambition of the Rebuilt team is also growing. Rebuilt just announced an expansion into Lakeland. The service should launch statewide by the end of May.

Don’t worry, for the seriously famished, you can double your protein per meal. Sign me up, St. Pete. 

Dynamism is part of the ReBuilt system. There are 30 different entrees to choose from each week, 4 rotating breakfast options, and 10 different kids meals. Not to mention a list of about of about 50 items that you can choose to order by the pound. 

ReBuilt makes all of its meals from a production facility down in Historic Ybor City.

This is about saving time. Assaf subscribes to Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000 hour principle, and ReBuilt’s chef prepared meal program gifts you back precious hours to pursue your own personal passion projects, or just enjoy some extra downtime when you’re home. 

ReBuilt currently operates out of a warehouse in History Ybor City, but it’s quickly outgrowing its home. Assaf and his team will soon expand ReBuilt delivery throughout the entire state of Florida. Locally born, ideated and created, ReBuilt brings one of the most booming and vital  trends in the culinary world to the region. Adhering to eco-friendly guidelines, while offering delicious and varied faire, ReBuilt is brimming with the kind of local flavor St. Pete and Tampa residents crave.
