RealEats is a healthy prepared meal delivery service where customers can warm meals in 6 minutes or less right at home. Meals are chef-cooked in Geneva, NY from locally and responsibly sourced ingredients. The challenge RealEats faced was standing out to the consumer in an increasingly-saturated market. The company wanted to focus on community building, demonstrating the importance of healthy eating, and showing its support of the small local farms.
