Tampa small business owners continue to inspire us on the regular. Now, Rebuilt Meals, a chef prepared meal service operating out of Ybor City, has officially expanded to serve the entire state of Florida.

During these difficult times this meal and delivery service has provided peace of mind at home. Rebuilt saves resident the stress and strain of making trips to the grocery store, and alleviates the burden of high delivery fees and up-charges on grocery delivery sites.

This expansion serves as a reminder that this city of Tampa is a place for small businesses to grow.

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.

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

If you need convincing to start, this 5-star review from Charlotte Kibert may sway you:

“I love Rebuilt Meals food and convenient delivery options. Their meal plans are yummy (I really love their breakfast options) and healthy. While I love to cook, like most people I am pretty stretched for time and ReBuilt feeds me weekdays to get me some time back in my life. And in our current pandemic existence, getting the majority of my food from a reputable local business has been super helpful, really reducing the need to go and shop in person during our stay-at-home time. Strongly recommend Rebuilt’s quality and selection and so happy to support local business!”

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. 

For those interested, I highly recommend adding the donuts to your meal plan. They are a decadent treat you can feel good about.

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.

Here’s one recent 5-star review from a customer, Grace:

“I have tried numerous meal services, and none of them compare to Rebuilt. The food tastes great, and the customer service is outstanding. I honestly look forward to receiving my meals each week, and I have stopped ordering out so frequently. If you’re looking for a healthy option that is full of flavor, this is the one for you.”

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.
