Walmart revealed that it will roll out its new meal kits to over 2,000 stores this year, and will also make the kits available through its Online Grocery pickup program.
The meals, which are currently available in more than 250 Walmart stores, were developed and tested in the retailer’s Culinary and Innovation Center, and are made and assembled fresh in-store daily. The meals include preportioned cooking kits that can be paired with other offerings, such as Walmart's rotisserie chicken, or One Step Meals that can be heated up and ready to eat in less than 15 minutes.
The convenience meal options serve two people and range in price from $8 to $15.
“Customers are busier than ever, and we know getting a delicious dinner on the table can be a chore. We’re here to help,” said Tyler Lehr, SVP and general merchandise manager of deli services, in a statement. “These delicious meals give the best or worst of cooks a fresh, easy option for dinner tonight, or later this week.”
Preportioned meal kits currently include Steak Dijon, Basil Garlic Chicken, Sweet Chili Chicken Stir Fry and Pork Florentine, and the retailer offers Thai Curry Chicken and Chicken Fried Rice as part of its Rotisserie Chicken Meals option.
One Step Meals include:
- Chicken Alfredo
- Cheesy Ravioli Bake
- Spaghetti and Meatballs
- Chicken Parmesan
- Pulled Beef
- Chicken Marsala
- Curry Chicken
- Pot Roast
- Chicken Enchiladas
