Last March, Spice Kitchen Incubator staff approached Chef Hayat of Hayat’s Grill with an idea: a weekly meal pickup service providing easy access to delicious ethnic cuisines from around the world to the greater Salt Lake community. On the first Thursday night of Spice To Go, Hayat’s Grill sold 98 servings to 40 people. The very next week, Chef Najati of Namash Swahili Cuisine served 445 servings to 181 people.
Since its inception in March 2017, Spice To Go has averaged 150 meals per week, with participating entrepreneurs grossing a cumulative income of over $80,000! Now, the weekly meal pickup service also invites additional entrepreneurs to sell packaged sweets and desserts.
Foodies and adventurous eaters can grab a hot meal to go with global flavors. Each week presents a new entrepreneur in the rotation—one week you might try an Armenian baked potato, the next week you’ll enjoy Korean BBQ bites, and the next could offer flavors from the Middle East. Spice To Go customers often say they rarely look at the menu—they are excited by the ever-changing cuisine and look forward to something new each week!
Spice To Go has received media attention locally from the Salt Lake Tribune as well as nationally from Food and Wine Magazine. Check out upcoming menu options and place your order by visiting SpiceKitchenIncubator.org!
