RICHARDSON, Texas, March 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Orchard At The Office, the Texas-based office fruit delivery company, announced today the launch of Orchard Home Delivery for fresh fruit and healthy snacks available to residents of the DFW Metroplex.
"During this unprecedented crisis, we have made the decision to serve our community by delivering whole fresh fruit and healthy snack boxes to people's homes in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex," announced Founder and CEO, Kevin Long. "Thousands of people in North Texas cannot safely shop in public and grocery stores continue to experience shortages. We have the wholesale suppliers, delivery vehicles and expert employees to meet the needs of our neighbors in DFW."
Orchard Home Delivery will deliver fresh fruit and healthy snacks to vulnerable populations like seniors and people with compromised immune systems. People who are self-quarantined due to recent travel, illness or possible exposure to COVID-19 can maintain social distancing while still receiving healthy foods. Long says, "Pivoting from office to home delivery also enables us to continue to employ our outstanding delivery drivers and staff, many of whom have been part of the Orchard team for 5+ years."
Many families in the Metroplex are suddenly homeschooling since schools and daycare facilities are closed for an indeterminate period. Parents are juggling remote work responsibilities and children's learning needs. Many are finding that getting to the store is much more difficult with several children in tow. "Unboxing a snack box filled with healthy treats is exciting and fun. It helps break the monotony and boredom of social distancing," added Long.
Orchard At The Office is committed to following the current CDC Guidelines for workplace safety. Their fruit is supplied by wholesale partners so delivery professionals are not exposed to large groups of people. Deliveries are made to the doorstep to ensure adequate social distance is maintained and delivery professionals never enter a customer's residence. Snack boxes can be shipped nationwide for free.
"We look forward to serving our corporate customers when their offices reopen and we pledge to continue to serve our community members at home as long as the need exists," says Long.
Founded in 2010, Orchard At The Office is family-owned and operated and employs 24 North Texans.
