TasteMaker Meals is one of the few businesses that has seen an increase in sales since the start of social distancing due to the coronavirus, owner Keith Daughtridge said.

The Georgetown-based meal prep delivery service began in August 2019 and offers a rotating six-week menu of healthy options.


The business model was made to alleviate grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning, and the meals are designed to deliver well, which is what people are seeking now, Daughtridge said.

TasteMaker is offering free delivery as long as the coronavirus pandemic continues and donating $1 for every meal purchased toward providing elderly community members with necessities.

“We have also implemented a contact-free delivery service so we can protect the well-being of our employees and customers,” Daughtridge said.



TasteMaker will deliver meals up to 40 miles from Georgetown. www.tastemakermeals.com
