LEON, Carluccio's dabble into meal kit space

Brands continue to diversify revenue streams.

More chains are looking into the meal kit space as an opporunity to grow their off-premise revenue.

From 8 to 21 November, LEON customers will be able to get their hands on its food from the comfort of their kitchen, as the restaurant partners with recipe box brand Mindful Chef on the launch of its limited-edition boxes.

Delivered straight to customers' doors nationwide, the limited-edition Mindful Chef x LEON recipe box will contain everything needed to make LEON’s Moroccan Meatballs and Sicilian-Style Meatless Meatballs. Each box includes pre-portioned ingredients, step-by-step instructions, plus a free jar of LEON’s iconic vegan Garlic Aioli.

Carluccio’s, meanwhile, partnered with HelloFresh to offer customers one of their most popular dishes for a limited time.

The Italian restaurant chain’s signature Italian Saltimbocca will be available to order nationwide alongside HelloFresh's dishes for the week of 7 November.

Accompanied by asparagus, potatoes and wrapped in cured ham, the creamy chicken dish is understood to be a best seller across Carluccio's restaurants.

“It’s certainly been an eventful year, and we are determined to keep serving delicious, fresh Italian food to the nation - whether that’s as part of a safe experience in our restaurants, or from the comfort of our own homes,” Carluccio’s executive chef Eric Chauvet said.
