Entrees Made Easy has been providing Maricopa residents with quick, healthy, and affordable ready-to-heat dinners for the past 10 months, and they are now expanding their services to include delivery to the Province neighborhood and Maricopa schools.

The company hopes to expand its customer base by reaching seniors from Province and teachers from Maricopa schools who need to eat but have difficulty traveling to Entrees Made Easy to pick up nutritious meals.

This expansion in service is built upon the catering service Entrees Made Easy already offers.

“These people may not be able to leave their home or get away from school, and they may think that they have to spend a lot of money and buy large packages of food, which is not true,” Sue Carlisle, owner of Entrees Made Easy, said.

The delivery service is free, and the lunches will be hot when delivered. Maricopa residents can place an order by calling Entrees Made Easy at (520) 483-3652.

Entrees Made Easy is promoting its new services with the advertising campaign “Got Dinner?” As part of that campaign, Entrees Made Easy will be featuring grab-n-go entrees that are ready to be taken home and cooked. They feed two to three people and cost $13.

Entrees Made Easy is holding an open house on Jan. 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to let the

public have a first-hand look at the facility.

“Guests will be able to see the ingredients, pick their own entrees, and get great discounts during the open house,” Carlisle said.

Many Maricopa residents are unfamiliar with the services and benefits that Entrees Made Easy provides, and Carlisle hopes that the open house will answer the public’s questions.

Entrees Made Easy is an alternative to fast food for many families that do not have time to cook at home because of busy schedules. The only thing customers should bring to Entrees Made Easy if they choose to pick up their food is a large cooler for transporting the food.

“We do all of the shopping, chopping, and cleanup for customers,” Carlisle said.

Meals at Entrees Made Easy are prepared with high quality ingredients such as restaurant-quality meat, poultry, and seafood. This grade of meat is one grade higher than customers can buy from the grocery store.

The meals are made with fresh vegetables and fruit, and have no preservatives added. This makes for a much healthier, balanced meal than can be bought at a fast food restaurant, Carlisle said.

“When people try us they love the taste, quality, and convenience of our food,” she said. “We are often as fast as a busy drive-thru or waiting in a grocery store line. We hope people will let us help them have a better family life in the evening.”
