Bringing home cooked favourites to the dinner tables of Birmingham.
This month sees the opening of Family Feeds, a new food business based in the heart of Erdington, set up to provide an alternative to the the usual menu options offered by online takeaways.
Offering home cooked classics including lasagne, cottage pie, mac ‘n cheese and fish pie, Family Feeds serves ‘proper’ dinners, created with love, delivered to your door. Exclusively available through just-eat.co.uk, the menu was created for parents who don’t have time to cook, providing dinners that are delicious, good for you and loved by kids.
Family Feeds stands out in the current takeaway market, over 90% of which is dominated by curry, pizza, chinese and chip shops. There are around 60 takeaways in Erdington alone. Experts have identified a growing trend in takeaways being bought not just as a treat – these days it’s another everyday option for dinner, with many families relying on takeaway as a quick source of dinner up to three times a week.
Set up by Patrick from Erdington and Louise from Dublin, the kitchen will start by serving all around Erdington, with plans to extend into surrounding areas in coming months. It’s open for orders 3pm-10pm. All meals are affordably priced at £3.49 for kids and £4.99 for adults, plus you get a free side of fresh chopped salad or vegetables with every main.
Louise Cooper of Family Feeds says, “We get that parents don’t always have time to cook after a busy day and the convenience of takeaway can be a gift in the evening. We also know that parent wants to feed their kids well. That’s why we set up Family Feeds: to deliver proper dinners that’ll leave you and your kids happy and well fed!”
Parents are already loving the service. Caroline Finn, mum of two from Erdington, said, “I think it’s a great idea to finally have a ‘home from home’ takeaway and enjoy nice hot home cooked food, but ordered in. I loved my lasagne. It was a really good size and very tasty. My kids loved the macaroni and cottage pie. It’s also perfect size for kids, so none was wasted.”
