What To Expect As We Grow
Thank you so much for your interest in Spade & Spoon! While we are so excited to serve the Front Range with our innovative meal kit, we know the true heroes in the local food movement are the individuals that choose to buy local and the incredible farmers, ranchers, bakers and makers that feed us well.
When you purchase from us during our soft launch, you become part of a special group we call the early adopters. As an early adopter, we would love to hear all your feedback and thoughts to help us improve. Our inbox is always open: firstname.lastname@example.org
We wanted to let you know what to expect over the next few months as we get more established and grow our offerings.
Phase 1: Soft Launch on Shop Small Saturday, November 26
As we start out (despite all our efforts, prayers, and dreams) we know our weekly orders will likely be small. This is why you will only see a handful of new meal kits offered each week for our first month.
If we launched with our full offerings, we might only need 2 items from each local producer, and that is not sustainable or fun for anyone. As we gain traction and new customers find us (this is where you can really help us spread the word!) you'll see us grow to over 20 new local meal kits each week and over 9 curated meal boxes to select from!
When you refer a friend to Spade & Spoon, your friend earns $20 off their first order and you receive a $20 referral reward! Check out our referral program here. If you love us, PLEASE share us on social media, and tell your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers. Word of mouth is gold to a small business!
Phase 2: More Kits, Marketplace, and a Few Curated Boxes
The first thing you'll see as we grow is that every week we will have a new and larger selection of local meal kits for you to choose from, we'll start building out our Marketplace section with local groceries, pantry staples, and other local treats to add to your box, and we'll introduce you to our weekly Family Classics, Vegetarian, and Gluten + Dairy Free curated meal boxes.
Phase 3: Moving Lots of Local Food at Scale
Once we have enough weekly customers, we will offer our full selection of 12 Curated Boxes including our Kids, Mediterranean, and Surf + Turf boxes. You'll be able to select from over 800 locally sourced meal kits over the full year, and we will make supporting local fun and delicious with specials like our Valentines Day Date Night In, New Years Reset, Seasonal Baking Boxes, and more!
Thank you for taking the time to learn about what you can expect as we grow. When you support our small business, you are supporting dozens of local farmers, ranchers, makers, and bakers in your community.
From all of us, thank you for choosing local food.
