Walmart to offer prepared meals at its stores

Walmart expanding meal kits to more stores nationwide

Walmart expanding meal kits to more stores nationwide

Walmart's push aligns with the efforts by traditional grocers, big box retailers and Amazon to move more aggressively into the meal-kit industry.

While companies like Blue April and Amazon have their own meal kits, Walmart doesn't want to just sit around and sell third-party meal kits.

Compared to other vendors in the market, Walmart offers no subscription, which is a positive effect in itself. Decisions to expand the meal-kit business and to offer prepared meals in its stores can help Walmart ward off competition.

Man reportedly shoots himself outside White House
A man apparently shot himself beyond the north fence line outside the White House on Saturday, a law enforcement official said. Authorities have since confirmed that the man has died as a result of gunshot wounds to the head.

Walmart's meal kit is supposed to serve two people, and the price range varies from $8 to $15. "These delicious meals give the best or worst of cooks a fresh, easy option for dinner tonight, or later this week". The Bentonville, Ark. -based mega-retailer will also make the meals available via Walmart's Online Grocery Pickup, enabling customers to order online at lunch and pick up the items in time for dinner. Thai Curry Chicken and Chicken Fried Rice dishes are in the rotisserie chicken lineup.

Although several other retailers have tried the meal kit option, a lot of them haven't succeeded in this business venture.

Walmart began stocking third-party meal kits a year ago. These are exactly the same kits you tend to get through services like Blue Apron, which tend to involve more preparation and more original foods.
