The FoodyDirect Story

The FoodyDirect team hails from different corners of the country but we share a common passion: the intense enjoyment of delicious food prepared and served by fabulous restaurants. Food inspires us. We are glued to the Food Network, scour food blogs, constantly try new recipes and spend hours researching which restaurants to visit when traveling new cities. And our most cherished memories are sharing great food adventures and experiences with our close friends and family.

About a year ago, one of our founders catered a super bowl party by placing an online order from a top Boston area seafood restaurant. When the shipment arrived on time and in perfect condition, our founder and his guests enjoyed a fabulous authentic New England seafood feast ... in Palo Alto, California!

But we found that searching the web for other top restaurants that offer online ordering and shipping was difficult and frustrating. A Google search for the best Maine lobster dishes or Texas barbecued brisket generated pages of unfiltered web site listings with no way of discerning which are the best options. Food lovers simply have no single trusted one stop site from which to shop, browse and order from a selection of the best gourmet and regional foods to be prepared and shipped to them by the top restaurants and other providers in America...until now.

What People are Saying...
I loved the multiple addresses function b/c remember last year feeling like it was such a pain to do it 3 times and was dreading that again. It was super easy and the adding gift message for each site was great.

Okay, bad situation here. Your sour cream Apple pie was just way too good, I felt inclined to not only order another one but added your key lime pie to that order. I ordered the strawberry rhubarb pie today....your pies have made me believe again in the old fashion way pies used to be made...clean tasting, fresh Ingredients and just absolutely delicious! The sour cream Apple was the best dessert I have had since I lived in Europe many years ago! Thank you for an affordable shipping and very fast delivery method of getting fresh homemade NOT FROZEN pies!
- Judy D., Rydel, GA
Just ordered the Hot Damn Tamales. Best item on FoodyDirect! Fantastic!
- Jim W., Palo Alto, CA
I've been eating pasta my whole life but never anything like this (Raffetto's). There's something about it. It's outstanding.
- Anthony C., Warren, NJ
I LOVE YOUR SITE and SERVICE! This is the best idea ever. We get to support local businesses around the country send love and genuinely yummy food to our family and friends. I found this site last week and have used it FOUR TIMES already!
- Katherine S., Brooklyn, NY
Having grown up in NYC, I did not have high expectations for the Deli Heaven package from Kenny & Ziggy's. I was very pleasantly surprised when the package arrived nicely packaged – everything was cold but not frozen and there was no spillage from the pickles or Russian dressing. I was even more pleased when I opened the individual packages to find incredibly lean pastrami and corned beef. My family has enjoyed the turkey, the corned beef, and the pastrami. The bread (a huge loaf) and pickles were also excellent. This Houston-based deli could give any NYC deli a run for their money.
- Carolyn S, Monclaire, NJ
Just ate our Sable’s New Years Day spread. Felt like my husband walked home with it like the old days in NYC! Perfect tuna, lobster salad and whitefish salad, seriously just like picking it up only easier! My kids want a weekly delivery of tuna! The H&H bagels amazing too. Made our New Years Day yummy and extra special!
- Felicia W, Los Angeles, CA
I chose FoodyDirect as my source for Holiday Treats for my colleagues in three different locations. For two groups, I ordered the "Greatest Hits" 3 Pack from We Take the Cake and for the smaller group, "The Babes" Mini Blondies & Brunettes from Hot Blondies. The We Take the Cake recipients ate the cakes up so quickly, I barely got to sample them - this was on a day that other holiday treats had arrived, and those were still only partially eaten, whereas the We Take the Cake cakes were demolished. The boxes were so pretty and festive; it made them seem extra special. The key-lime was my favorite, but I was surprised by how moist and delicious the red velvet was. The "Babes" from Hot Blondies were also well received - I was told they were both delicious and "so cute." I think all the groups that received these gifts were genuinely appreciative and felt that this year was better than last! I plan to repeat the order next year! Thanks for finding these great bakeries and making ordering easy with FoodyDirect!
- Sinda M., Portola Valley, CA
I ordered two Philly Cheesesteaks from Campo's Deli, they came in yesterday and let me say, I was impressed. First the sandwiches, we loved them, they were absolutely mouthwateringly good. Second the packaging. I was happily surprised everything was separated in order to keep each ingredient as perfect as possible ... heck I was even surprised to find some pretzels, snack cakes and even some peanut chews in there too. Also loved that it came with prep and cooking directions, not to mention a fridge magnet for Foody Direct (which is on my fridge right now). I think I will be making orders from here once a month, got plenty of other restaurants to choose from. Thank you very much.
- Ash A., Longview, TX
I am from the Detroit area and was so excited to try the pizza from Detroit Style Pizza Company. My family and I love the pizza we get when we visit the Detroit area several times a year. We ordered the cheese pizza from Detroit Style Pizza Company and loved it! It made us feel like we were back in the Detroit area and we will definitely order more!
- Melinda L., Atherton, CA
We placed our first FoodyDirect order last week (from Turner’s Seafood) and it was totally impressive on many fronts. The packaging was marvelous-everything fresh, well packed and beautiful (we are going there next time we are in Mass!). The direction sheets were fabulous and super easy to read/apply and made you want to buy many other treats. And the food? DELICIOUS – the Oysters Rock were amazing and we’re still savoring the lobster knockout! This will be a go-to gift idea and go-to for future dinners when we want to WOW the CROWD…thank you!
- Brian F., Brooklyn, NY
We ordered the Fresh Herb Fried Turkey from Jive Turkey for Thanksgiving. Initially thought it was a little pricey but definitely worth it for how easy it was! Ready in an hour, super juicy and very delish.
- Felicia W, Los Angeles, CA
Last week I ordered JENNY’s HOMEMADE COOKIES from FOODYDIRECT. The order arrived in a beautiful box and before I knew it, my entire family was in the kitchen warming up our cookies in the microwave and sitting down at the table with glasses of cold milk (we are dunkers). The cookies were big, soft, DELICIOUS! And the best part of all… it brought my family together! I will be ordering again soon for the Varsity Volleyball team, and I will be sending these precious treats to my God Son at Princeton for him and his roommates to devour. THANK YOU FOODYDIRECT for finding such an awesome bakery!
- Kim M., San Francisco Bay area, CA
My family and I moved to Boston, MA in 2008 and I fell totally in love with all of the fresh seafood! We were then transferred to Austin, TX for 2 years and recently moved to Ohio where I can purchase seafood from the grocers but the quality is no comparison to the delicious seafood of a coastal region. Now I can have my fresh, delicious seafood and eat it too thanks to this wonderful site. 
Thank you all for compiling all of the wonderful assortments of products that are available all on a 'one-stop-shop' site!
- Amanda B., Columbus, OH
Lox were sublime and I mean that in the truest sense of the word. I cut out the Sable's logo and displayed it by the salmon. Packaging was terrific - everyone loved it. Served with brown bread and butter, red onion and capers - so yummy. I am saving the cheesecake for this weekend - also packaged very well and everything is so speedy!!!! Shipping costs sealed the deal!!
- Barbara G., Allentown, PA
My family was so excited when it arrived in 100% quality. They couldn't believe that I was able to send ice cream from Anderson’s in perfect condition hundreds of miles away. It was a piece of their hometown sent to their new home!
- Erin M., Cheektowaga, NY
Sometimes we get a craving for things we grew up with like Beef on Weck from Anderson's. You've provided us with a wonderful memory refresh. Can't thank you enough. We already put in our second order.
- James M., Arvada, CO
Had The Narrows crab cakes last night. Simple to prepare and amazing!
- Mike M., Austin, TX
I must tell you the chopped chicken liver from Sable’s is the best I have ever eaten, and the H&H bagels were the real deal. The reheating instructions for Black’s BBQ were perfect and the beef ribs had a dramatic appearance that would thrill anyone and they were moist and juicy. I think it is an awesome value and for anyone who knows Texas BBQ this is a grand slam home run. Next up is Memphis ribs!
- Don B., Red Bank, NJ
The Memphis BBQ Family Dinner from Central BBQ was GREAT! Everything heated up nicely and I threw the ribs on the grill for a few minutes at the end just to get them really hot. We had 4 adults and 3 kids and ended up with tons of leftover pulled pork and half a slab of ribs. Everything was delicious. Below is an email we received from our guests: “Thank you so much for such a fun evening last night! The food was delicious (and abundant) and we greatly appreciate all of your kindness and hospitality. Ahh, summer is here!”
- Brad S., Mamaroneck, NY
My mom said that she cried. It was a birthday that she will always remember. She said it was the best chocolate cake she ever had!!!! (from We Take the Cake). Three words...reliable, prompt and delicious!
- Judy S., Brooklyn, NY
I consider myself very lucky to have stumbled upon your site last Friday. Convenience aside, I find your Customer Service function remarkable.
- Leon J., Sacramento, NJ
We just finished off the last of our Phil's Fish Market cioppino, and we're still working our way through the Sable's Scottish salmon. The quality of the food, as I'm sure you know, is wonderful -- the salmon is off the charts! -- but I also want to report that the shopping experience with FoodyDirect was outstanding! We plan to be repeat customers. A FoodyDirect meal is a wonderful solution to a dinner at our condo downtown, when we often arrive late and don't have time to shop or cook. Keep up the good work!
- Eric P., Escondido, CA
I loved the BBQ from Black's. Brought some of the leftovers in to work to share. Co-worker from TX said that it was exactly the way it should be.
- Charles M., Hillsboro, OR
My grandmother who now lives in NC was craving a roast beef on weck (and so was I). Thank you FoodyDirect for a special treat!
