Kitchfix (formerly known as CJK Foods), a Chicago, IL-based meal delivery service, closed a $300k seed round of financing.
The round was led by Ken Leonard, a local angel investor and the initial investor in Protein Bar, with participation from other prominent Chicago-area angels.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its team and operations (It has signed a lease for 4,987 square feet of commercial kitchen and office space located at 1731 W. Grand Ave. in Chicago and plans to move into the new space by October, 2014) and accelerate growth.
Led by Chef Josh Katt, CEO and founder, Kitchfix is a healthy meal delivery service that creates and delivers chef-crafted, ready-to-eat meals for busy professionals and families using locally sourced, organic, gluten, soy and dairy-free ingredients.
The company sources ingredients locally including some peppers, tomatoes and swiss chard from its own rooftop garden and its pasture-raised meats from Gunthorp Farms and Hoosier Ranch, both from Indiana.
The meals can be ordered online in medium and large sizes priced at $12 and $15 respectively.
The menu rotates weekly.
Kitchfix recently expanded its lunch and dinner offerings to include ready-to-eat breakfast items, sides, smoothies and snacks.
