“Going to the grocery store during these times can pose a huge risk for infection, and deliveries from companies like UberEats can cost upwards of $30 a meal,” claims Chef Michael Donnerstag, owner of Chef Mike.

Comparatively speaking, Chef Mike offers his delivered meals for $16.75 a plate. “We do not charge delivery fees, gratuity, and there no hidden percentages for the software company,” said Chef Mike. “Other meal delivery services charge percentages for the software company, the delivery driver, and a convenience fee.”

Lower cost doesn’t mean lower quality of food. In fact, the Johnson and Wales educated chef takes quality very seriously.

“Our meals are made with the highest quality meats and vegetables available,” said Chef Mike. “We use locally sourced ingredients and all our food is prepared fresh and delivered the next day.”

A recent Yelp review confirmed not only the quality of the food but also all the other attributes Chef Mike is committed, too. The reviewer wrote:

I have been using Chef Mike’s meal delivery service for about 3 weeks, and I get 5-6 dinners a week. I’d give him a rating of 6 out of 5, if I could. His meals are invariably nutritious, delicious , and attractively presented. There is plenty of food for a filling dinner for one. It is like going to a good restaurant each night. All I have to do is go to my refrigerator, pick out what I want and heat it up in the microwave for about 2.5 to 3 minutes right in its own container. There is a menu of 4 different dishes for each night, and the menu changes weekly. He offers touchless delivery at no additional cost right to doorstep each day M-F. I have tried a number of the national meal delivery services like Freshly. Chef Mike beats those by a country mile. Try them for a week. I am confident you’ll be hooked.

Every Thursday, Chef Mike changes his menu for the following week. All meals are a single portion except for the family meals that offer 4-6 portions. Ordering is due by 4 p.m. to assure next day delivery.

All food is prepared fresh the day before and arrives cold. Heating instructions are included to guarantee a delicious experience.

Chef Mike plans to expand his meal delivery business to holiday meal delivery and athletic meal preparation. In fact, he offered a Thanksgiving holiday feast for one or for the whole family.

With Chef Mike, you can now order for the whole week and forget about having to make dinner plans. All you need to do is simply chose, heat, and eat.

You can order online at or call 941-822-2807. Currently, Chef Mike is offering a discount for your first order. Simply use the code CHEFMIKE1 and you will save $5 on your first order.
