Paul Arellano launched Elite Meal Prep in Salt Lake City, Utah on the very first day of 2017 after his own successful weight loss journey. Unhappy with his own weight and lifestyle in 2016, he dedicated weeks to researching and experimenting with meal prep until he finally created a nutritious, tasty menu yielding quick results. Since Paul was able to create a meal plan that didn’t sacrifice taste, he became committed to empowering other people to achieve the same results. Today, Elite Meal Prep remains known for its ideal combination of portion control, great tastes, and affordable prices.
Paul has run his business both independently and with help from other meal-prep software companies. But in both circumstances, he was getting constant requests from his customers for more customizable options – especially for the ability to pick their own meals. Furthermore, his team was using 4 different systems for their day-to-day operations: to make and organize their shopping lists, meal counts, customer orders, and more. If a customer voiced their nutritional needs or allergens – which they inevitably have – there was no efficient way to communicate this to the kitchen. For years, Paul tried to simplify this process, but to no avail.
