CHICAGO, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- MyMenu Inc., a Chicago-based frozen food retailer, offering a winning combination of culinary-quality, innovative foods and ease of preparation, is about to expand its presence as an exclusive addition to Ohio retailer, The Andersons.
On Saturday October 16, 2010 The Andersons, Inc., which currently operates six retail stores in Ohio, will celebrate the Grand Re-Opening of its locations in Maumee (Illinois Ave), Toledo (Talmadge Rd), and Columbus-Sawmill (Bent Tree Blvd). MyMenu will be featured in these three locations of The Andersons, with additional stores to be announced in 2011. MyMenu also operates six corporate stores in Madison, WI, and Fort Wayne, IN.
As part of the Grand Re-Opening celebrations, MyMenu will host a Charity Cookout at these three locations of The Andersons from 10am until 4pm. For a minimal donation, visitors will receive their choice of a MyMenu Tasty Burger or Black Forest Brat, water and chips. The proceeds of the Cookout will be given to The United Way.
The Andersons stores have been offering a quality shopping experience to customers since 1952 and have grown to become a unique destination for foodies looking to find something special to put on the table for family and friends. MyMenu is an excellent fit for The Andersons, as the goal of both is to bring customers a memorable experience with their food.
There is a clear departure from your standard frozen food aisle with MyMenu, as there are certified MyMenu Product Consultants on hand at the freezers to show the products, share recipes, advise on menu planning for anything from a home-style meal to a special party, and assist the customer with personalized nutrition and allergen searches. It is a level of customer care that speaks to the overall commitment MyMenu has to their customer's dining experience.
"MyMenu appeals to busy people who value their time as much as they value great food – all at fair prices, with outstanding, personalized service. We look forward to now becoming part of cherished meal-time traditions in Columbus and Toledo," added Jennifer Dodd, U.S. Divisional Vice President of MyMenu.
"We are very excited to bring the MyMenu concept into our stores and pleased to be able to offer a quality frozen food program to our customers," said Dan Anderson, President, Retail Group, The Andersons, Inc.
The Andersons Store customers will be able to find hundreds of delicious products behind the MyMenu freezer doors; ranging from delectable appetizers, to succulent chicken, steaks hand cut by master butchers, decadent desserts, great party foods and more—all frozen at the peak of freshness and easy to prepare in the comfort of your home.
