Helping a customer feels good!

I get a lot of calls from people who are trying to make sure their parents are getting the proper nutrition. When people get older they sometimes lose the ability or even the desire to go to the grocery store or cook for themselves after a lifetime of cooking. So they’re left eating very little or nothing at all in some cases because they just can’t cook anymore.

One customer in particular was at the end of her rope. She lives 3 hours away from her Dad and visits as often as she can. She called practically crying after looking in his refrigerator, at her father’s thinning waistline and searching through websites trying to find a solution that will give her peace of mind and keep her father fed.

When she called MagicKitchen.com, she was so impressed with the selection that we had that she actually exclaimed, “This is a dream come true! You have complete meals delivered to his door that he can just put into the microwave and eat a nutritious meal? The low-sodium guidelines his doctor set, he could never follow on his own and we were there to help. We spent some time talking on the phone about his dietary needs, about how scared she was that he had just stopped eating.

Her Dad has been using MagicKitchen.com ever since and calls to tell her how much he loves the food. His favorites are the Pot Roast and the Spaghetti with Meatballs. Not only is it a special package that arrives to his home that makes him feel special, he has a small conversation with the delivery person and it actually makes his day to receive his food.

I know I am doing my job well when people call me frantic, and out of options and they end up completely satisfied with the food and the service, so much that they take the time to write and tell me so.

Best review

We often get great reviews from our customers, but this one stood out. I personally think our chicken pot pie is the best I’ve ever tasted, but this validates my opinion and is a nice story as well.

Elaine wrote, “My eighty-nine year old mother is going through radiation treatment for breast cancer. Her prognosis is excellent: she will probably out-live her grandchildren! I am now living with her as a caretaker, although I often wonder who is taking care of whom. I tell you this because there are times when she just does not feel like eating and there are times when I do not feel like cooking. Eating out for us means carry-in. That limits our choices to Asian Cuisine or Pizza. That’s okay, but not every week .

We sat down to eat MK’s chicken pot pie with much skepticism since both of us are good cooks (That is why we delegated it to our midday meal). Our egos took a bruising at the first taste of this meal. It was better than either of us had ever made! Mom ate every tasty morsel and took a long nap. It was a good day.”
