Tony Makar, owner of Gourmet on Wheels, knows the restaurant business.
His meal delivery service has grown exponentially in the last year. The large entrees with low/no sea salt, sugar substitutes and fresh herbs are ideal for a healthy lifestyle. You can go online, place your order on Fridays, and five meals will be delivered to your door on Tuesdays for the low price of $13/meal.
Makar’s business has grown to include a diverse population. People of all ages and walks of life benefit from Tony’s cooking, including me. I order from Tony once a week, and my amazing meals come prepared to reheat. I pick the kids up from camp, let them play while I work and throw the meals in the microwave for 3-5 minutes for an absolutely delicious gourmet meal. And the best part — no clean up.
This just isn’t great for single moms; it’s also terrific for bachelors! Are you looking for something to do for that friend who just had a baby? Or would you like to console someone who’s just lost someone close to them? Or do you want to help a loved one who’s been ill and unable to cook? This is the best gift idea. It’s inexpensive and very thoughtful.
Each meal feeds two people easily. My two girls and I eat each meal, no problem. And Tony makes just about everything you can think of. From shrimp enchiladas to meatloaf to baked ziti, he makes a good meal.
Tony and his mom cook at Lady’s Island Country Club on Mondays for Tuesday deliveries. They have established a solid foundation for a business that has become quite popular in Beaufort. I can attest, Gourmet on Wheels is the next best thing to sliced bread. But, don’t take my word for it. Try it yourself. Go to www.beaufortscmealdelivery.com and take a look at all of Tony’s meals. Once you start, I promise, you’ll be hooked.
