Launched in 2013 with a single Fridge, the company has grown to a network of 400 automated smart Fridges across the country and offers delivery in 42 states, serving thousands of customers daily. The smart Fridges vend meals in seconds and the company’s proprietary technology continually tracks inventory for freshness, while stocking products customized to customer preference trends at each location.

“We’re thrilled to announce our Texas expansion, bringing us one step closer to fulfilling our mission of making fresh, healthy food as accessible as a candy bar,” said Luke Saunders, Founder and CEO of Farmer’s Fridge in a statement. “We recognize the importance of delivering convenient, delicious and affordably priced food in high-traffic locations and look forward to serving the Texas market.”

The chef and culinary team at Farmer’s Fridge take a progressive approach to the menu, using local ingredients whenever possible. Meals are packaged in recyclable, portable jars and delivered fresh throughout the week. The company monitors the cold chain from end-to-end to ensure peak freshness and includes an “Enjoy By” date on every item. Surplus meals are regularly donated to local food depositories, helping community members in need.
