The Man Behind the Meals - Father's Day Edition Posted on 14 Jun 22:40

We believe a meal is more than just food. This is especially true for Chef Kylan, our Chief Culinary Officer. It all started for him in a humble kitchen in Beaumont, Texas. Chef Kylan realized that cooking a delicious meal is more than just nourishment; it also brings people together. His inspiration comes from generations of sharing meals as a family - a tradition he honors when creating meals for your family.

"Who says you can't merge this salty snack straight into your food?... This is chefs cooking food, and you just order it and heat it up when you get home."

SupperBell is excited to announce our exclusive partnership with Baby Fresh Organics, Denver’s first-ever organic baby food meal delivery service. 

Baby Fresh Organics makes it easy to serve your child fresh, healthy, organic food. The unique “farm to bib” concept begins with sourcing the freshest organic ingredients from local purveyors. Visit babyfreshorganics.co to shop all of the delicious and nutritious food. Place your order and let our local kitchen prepare and deliver right to your doorstep! Yes, it’s that easy!

Baby Fresh Organics is rooted in functional nutrition that is evidence-based and backed by science. Our philosophy for feeding babies is thoughtful and purposeful since every bite counts, yet fun and flavorful, because food should be!

Our in-house Holistic Functional Nutritionist approves every recipe, so you can rest assured that your child is getting the right nutritional balance.

We offer products for babies 6+ months all the way through kids meals suitable for all ages:

Stage 1: 6+ months: Simple pureés for first food introduction

Stage 2: 8+ months: More complex pureé blends to introduce new textures

Stage 3: 10+ months: Foods to refine pincer grasp, dexterity, and ease the transition to kids meals

Stage 4: All ages: Nutrient-dense kids meals to nourish a growing body and broaden the palate

At Baby Fresh Organics, we focus on healthy, whole foods that nourish and are developmentally appropriate for your child. We select foods based on their nutritional profile to provide a wide variety of nutrients. Learn more about our Feeding Philosophy at babyfreshorganics.co.

Celebrating the SupperBell Drivers Posted on 19 Feb 20:27

 

 

 

Several members of the driver team getting ready for action...

Culinary Chauffers. Delivery Ambassadors. Careful Couriers of the Chef Handcrafts!

We've come to realize how much both our Customers and our Chefs appreciate the calculated, dedicated work of the SupperBell Drivers! They... hand-pack and ultra-chill each customer bag with fury... dash into the most rush-hour, traffic-laden window of road congestion... surmount snow-hell, high water, staircases and elevator cars... dodge raging dogs, sleeping babies, clueless spouses, curiously unlit alleys and unmarked duplexes... employ on-the-fly maneuvers to carefully deposit five-star meals for their clients, whether a single entree or a cart-loaded dinner party... and truly, express severe self-disappointment on the rare occasions that they cause an error.

Okay, you get it. SupperBell's drivers MAKE or BREAK SupperBell, even though they passionately strive to MAKE... and categorically never BREAK... SupperBell.

One of our most frequent customer complaints has been that drivers cannot be tipped during online checkout.

We've realized that we need to improve the SupperBell culture in a way that better celebrates our Drivers, follows industry practices, and even listens to what Emily Post has to say about gratuity

We’ve lost many opportunities to retain "Rock Star" Drivers. We have not been ensuring that drivers are competitively compensated. Ultimately, this has been a disservice to our Customers.

Customers, Driver Gratuity has been enabled for online checkout.

Drivers, we appreciate you!

Denver Flea + SupperBell Posted on 07 Aug 16:53
It's that time of year when you must... shop for yourself! August is pretty darn hot, and summer is in full swing. While the pool may be a welcome refuge, who can deny a day in the park imbibing with Denver's best makers and crafters? This weekend, August 13th + 14th, we're partaking in the festivities for Denver Flea's 10th pop up market at City Park. It's going to be quite the bash with 150+ local vendors.

We're Knocking On Your Door Posted on 15 Jul 13:35

You asked, we've answered. SupperBell is excited to announce our larger delivery area. This week we expanded our delivery services into Aurora, Littleton, and Englewood and will now deliver our tasty chef-prepared meals to Greenwood Village, Denver Tech Center, Southglenn, East Lowry, East Littleton, Sheridan and Bow Mar neighborhoods and offices. 

There's a demand for high quality, convenient meal options everywhere. So, we've taken on the challenge of delivering freshly prepared meals to you. Relieving you of last minute trips to the grocery store or frustrating discussions on whether to order Chinese or Pizza for delivery. The Denver Metro area has a new and better option - SupperBell. Whether you're working late at the office, juggling kids between school and soccer practice, or not well in bed but hungry for something nourishing, we can help you with that tiresome question, "what's for dinner?"

And because we know summertime is all about being outdoors and enjoying the warm sunshine, not fussing over what to cook for lunch and dinner, we're constantly creating and adding new light, summer-inspired dishes to our rotating menu. With Frank Bonanno and Chef Cristino Griego's culinary expertise we're dishing up bright meals so you can take advantage of a portable, delivered meal while you enjoy all the Denver lifestyle has to offer. Order in so you can meet up for that quick tennis match or plan ahead for delivery so having a picnic at the park is that much more carefree. 

 

Keep an eye out for dishes like Grilled Ono with Farmers' Market Stir Fry, Grilled Summer Steak Salad (pictured below), and Grilled Grateful Polenta with a garden veggie ragu. We can't wait to deliver happiness!

Feast & Fireworks. Oh my! Posted on 30 Jun 21:14
Sparklers, dirty paper plates, frothy beer, sunshine, and a yard strewn with various lawn chairs are a few of my favorite things this time of year. Traces of barbecue sauce and red, white, and blue streamers are evidence of a Fourth of July well done. Explosives and a keg of delicious, cold beer are important details but not the only details that matter. Food is key. Good ole' comfort food. I'm talking BBQ slathered ribs to pick off the bone, crispy coleslaw, pasta salad, and roasted chicken.

Meet The SupperBell Chefs | Part III Posted on 16 Jun 19:41

Chef Kylan is our resident Texan and Director of Operations. Together, these two qualities mean he gets sh@# done! Some of our kitchen staff playfully refer to him as MacGyver. Whether it's a disagreeable and malfunctioning dish-washing machine or an emergency on the line, he sorts out whatever the issue and then comes up with some wild ideas and solutions.

Kylan isn't called Chef for nothing. He's a darn good cook who will cook some darn good food at the drop of a hat. While he isn't always cooking on the line, likely busy putting out fires (commonplace in a kitchen), he'll jump in and help the staff whenever something needs done. A cool cucumber, wise-cracks and any upset in the kitchen just roll off his shoulders. He's first in and last to leave, speaking volumes on his work ethic and dedication. I can't say enough about this fine gentleman and his contribution to the team. While he sounds all business, this Texan's got a good sense of humor too. We love having you with us, Kylan, and we know you're going to take us places! 

______________________________________________________________________________

Chef Kylan

Favorite dish to cook? Crawfish étouffée. Because it's my wife's favorite dish, and it reminds me of home [Texas].

What's a staple in your pantry? Tortilla chips and ingredients to make salsa. I live on the stuff. 

Where did you earn your kitchen chops? And, how do you continue to learn as a chef? I’ve been in and out of restaurants and food related businesses since I was 15. My first real cooking job was at the Augustine Grill in Castle Rock where I worked my way up to Executive Chef. I then went on to be a R&D Chef at Leprino Foods, where I finally had time to go to culinary school at the Art Institute of Colorado.

What is your favorite food memory from childhood and why? Cooking and eating lobster with my grandparents for the first time. After dipping the meat in butter for the first time, I was hooked!

Congratulations! You have carte blanche to dine in any city or country in the world. Where would you go? Spain. My favorite way to eat is sharing or having many small plates, so wine and tapas is right up my alley.

What makes SupperBell unique, and why do you love working here? To be able to serve great food to people that can eat it at their own convenience in the comfort of their home. I love being able to work with a great start up and help transform it into something huge!

Thank you for getting to know another SupperBell superstar! We relish the opportunity to brag about our staff. They make our chef-prepared meal delivery possible and are the very reason we're able to deliver five-star meals to our Denver community. Stay tuned for more employee interviews!
