    It surprises me that the local Mexican business people are not getting upset by the number of expats who are running businesses here.. if there is no local Mexican people offering that service then that’s fair enough, but so many expats are offering rides to the airport and just about everywhere else.. food to be picked up a local bazaar.. moving you from place to place, just to name a few...,

    I get that and appreciate your thoughts. I would love to provide jobs to locals with this business and I want to retire early. Just 5 years or so may give me the income to live modestly I'm the Chapala área. After that I hope to have a house  built and use my retirement money to just be retired. If I were to make that happen, I would love to pass my business on to any loyal employees to own and thrive.

    And many Restaurants here are members of the Traitte (sp?) Delivery Service where a restaurant meal can be delivered to your door. Why would anyone cook (even with the freshest ingredients) when they have that option. Each to his/her own but I prefer to grocery shop for myself. YMMV.

    Absolutely, I wouldn't cook daily with all of these choices, though I personally find cooking fun and would do it once a week. Exactly what you said...to each his or her own! One thing I do is all of the chopping and keep the cook time to 20 mins. I very much appreciate your feedback. I know it's not for everyone!

    Given that eating out or carry out is very moderate in cost here, you may find the demand for this minimal.  It is not like the U.S. where it is easy to spend $100 on a restaurant meal these days.  Having said that is certainly isn't as cheap here as it used to be.  We fondly remember the Hole In The Wall where two could feast on great food plus beer for $10-12 U.S.


    Completely understandable. My aim is to make it as affordable as going out to eat. I expect customers to use the service about once a week when you just want a different experience. I would love to know what everyone would think is a reasonable price for this. 

    Currently our prices are approximately $5.00 per serving without alcohol. ( As much as I'd like to provide that service, it will take a while to get a license, though, for first and or loyal customers I like to provide a little free 'treat'!

  4. Hi! Thank you for all of the questions! First let me start with the business in Guadalajara is on hold right now because I is not the right market at the right time. If I have enough interest from the Chapala area I will open it back up and make it bilingual.

    There are no minimum orders and contracts. 

    What we did in Guadalajara is set 1-2 hour delivery time frames. I am completely open to doing things differently there due to much less traffic.

    You see the recipes a full week in advance and I have multiple recipes from our collections that I can share with you. They are in Spanish but you will get the gist. Recipes change weekly and we take recommendations!

    Prices and practices would be generally the same but I am adaptable to the needs of the community. 

    I plan to be there 2 days next week and am happy to meet and show you recipes or I can post them here. Or both!

  5. The business is called Fudi and is the same concept as companies such as Hello Fresh in the U.S. and Europe and Blue Apron. It is for people who enjoy cooking and want to learn to make new recipes or do not enjoy menu planning or prep. I do those for you! Then, I deliver all of the pre-prepped, fresh ingredients in good sized portions with explicit instructions on how to make

    Right  now I am really just putting feelers out to see if any of you would enjoy this kind of service. Any feedback would be very helpful.
