WILDFIRE’S SIGNATURE CHOPPED SALAD COMES HOME TO CHICAGO IN A NEW MEAL KIT BY PEAPOD

Peapod expands successful collaboration with restaurants Wildfire and Big Bowl, delivering inspired meal solutions

Chicago, IL (November 7, 2019)Peapod, the country’s leading online grocer, announces the expansion of its successful meal kit collaboration with the Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises®, adding three new meal kits by Wildfire®, a classic steakhouse specializing in chops and seafood.

Peapod is now offering the Wildfire® Signature Chopped Salad meal kit complete with roasted chicken, tomatoes, bacon, avocado, corn and tortilla strips, with the restaurant’s citrus lime vinaigrette in addition to two seafood meal kits including the Wildfire® Yogurt Glazed Salmon & Squash ‘Noodles’ and Wildfire® Whitefish Piccata with Spinach, Mushrooms & Rice. All three kits are available for home delivery in the Chicagoland region on Peapod.com.

“We all love going out to dinner – the amazing flavors and extra bonus of no dishes! While we can’t promise no dishes, the new Wildfire and Big Bowl meal kits bring all the joys of dining out right to our shoppers’ homes at a great price point,” says Spencer Baird, Senior Vice President of Merchandising for Peapod. “As an added bonus – our customers can get the rest of their grocery needs at the same time – everything from lunchbox supplies to laundry detergent, saving them time, especially during the busy week.”

Also within Peapod’s collaboration with Lettuce Entertain You are signature meal kits from Big Bowl®, known for its Chinese and Thai cuisine. Timeless and continuously popular meal kits offered in partnership with both Wildfire® and Big Bowl® include the Wildfire® Oven Roasted Tomato & Mozzarella Flatbread and Big Bowl® Beef & Broccoli with Jasmine Rice. For a full list of meal kit offerings from Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises®, visit Peapod.com.

“The signature Chopped Salad at Wildfire is so popular that there are recipes all over the Internet trying to recreate it. Creating a meal kit via Peapod is an amazing opportunity to bring the recipe right into people’s kitchens,” says Howard Katz, Wildfire & Big Bowl President. “By continuing to collaborate with Peapod this year, we’re able to give consumers an opportunity to try even more of our most popular dishes and get a sense of the variety we offer in our restaurants.”

The meal kits are affordably priced at around $5 per serving and can be purchased without a subscription. Each kit includes pre-measured, pre-cut and pre-washed fresh ingredients for a home-cooked, quality meal that streamlines prep and clean up time.
