MAVEN MEALS Launches Premier Meal Prep and Delivery Franchise Program

The first-of-its-kind initiative offers customers the opportunity to serve their communities with the freshest local ingredients


SEATTLE -- Maven Meals today announced its new franchise program, becoming one of the first in the prepared meal delivery industry to do so. Founded on the belief that no one should suffer through eating low-quality, unhealthy takeout meals just because they live a hectic lifestyle, Maven Meals now offers franchisees the opportunity to deliver tasty, prepared meals directly to their customers’ doors.


With the support of a dedicated team and a robust set of kitchen and logistical tools, the new program offers an exciting way for restaurant professionals, investors, and entrepreneurs alike to follow in the footsteps of Heid Finley, Maven Meals Founder and CEO, and turn their passion for food into a profitable business.


“Maven Meals has helped all kinds of people, from cancer patients lacking the energy to cook, to new moms, to grown children wanting to send meals to their aging parents,” says Finley. “As someone who is innovative and passionate about serving the community through food, I am proud and excited to offer our franchisees the opportunity to forge their own path through the Maven Meals franchise program.”


Started as a side hustle with eight families before officially launching in 2011, Maven Meals has seamlessly adapted to rapidly changing consumer behaviors and market trends, with average annual growth exceeding 40%. Maven Meals provides handcrafted, seasonal dishes featuring the freshest, locally sourced ingredients, yielding nutritious prepared meals that burst with flavor. Additionally, there is no subscription requirement, which creates maximum flexibility for customers.


To become involved in the Maven Meals franchise program, there is low initial investment and no retail location requirement. Maven’s proprietary operations software is exclusive to the franchise program and integrates with leading e-commerce, kitchen management, and logistics solutions to make ordering, meal prep, and delivery routing easy. It is designed to keep day-to-day operations automated and organized through streamlined order management workflows, robust forecasting tools, inventory, ordering, menu-costing, delivery logistics, accounting and reporting, and retention workflows. Maven Meals’ franchise owners will have access to an easy-to-use website that stores customer account information and offers food details like serving size, dietary tags, ingredients, and more.


The program is available to franchisees in Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, and Idaho, with plans to expand nationally. For more information on the program, visit
