Who Are We?

Our mission is in our name. At Time Makers our mission is to make time for your busy family. Time to focus on the most important thing in life - each other. Currently we do this by cutting down on the time you would spend shopping, cooking and on clean up in order to provide nutritious meals for your family. We make healthy meals and deliver them to your child care center/school. When you pick up your child at the end of a long day, you also leave with a healthy dinner for your family. No more sacrificing nutrition for time or vice versa.  

Our Product: 

At Time Makers we use high quality food full of vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants and food low in refined sugars and harmful chemicals. With an owner who is a Nutritional Therapist your family will be served meals that provide a service to your body.  As often as possible we use organic, Non GMO, antibiotic free foods which are purchased from reputable local facilities. 

Where Did We Come From? 

The idea of Time Makers began during the owner's personal fight against obesity.  During her 100 pound weight loss journey she was directing a child care center and saw the desperate need for such a service. She combined her passion for children, nutrition, cooking and health and Time Makers was born.

Where Time Makers Currently Stands: 

We are working hard to get Time Makers into the lives of families as quickly as possible. We are a few days from having all our permits and licenses. We have secured our kitchen and are gearing up for a start early to mid September. 

Why Kickstarter?

The funds we are raising will go to getting the word out about Time Makers via our marketing materials, enabling our website to take online orders,  purchasing cooking equipment, and purchasing transportation equipment sufficient for maintaining food safety during transport. 

Whats Next?

Once we have all our equipment and have contracted with centers we will be going to several child care centers in the area, once a week. We will initially start by bringing a healthy meal that families can pick up and have for dinner that night. The meals will be fully prepared and will only need to be popped in the oven to warm, with varying distances for families to drive home, this option is the best for maintaining the quality and safety of the food. The food will come in microwave and oven safe, environmentally friendly containers. 

In the very foreseeable future, as demand increases, we will add the option for families to purchase a variety of meals. These meals will be ready to pop from the fridge into the oven. Most will also be freezable if families decide they would like to stock up on their favorite dishes and save them for a later date. Eventually we hope to include breakfast and lunch options. 

What Makes Us Unique? 

Time Makers strives to keep cost for quality foods low by ordering and cooking in larger quantities. We have a limited menu each week in order to keep cost lower and affordable. We hope by doing this we are able to be a service for many families. 

Currently there are other meal companies that help eliminate shopping and cut down prep time that you can order from and have prepared ingredients delivered to your home. Our goal at Time Makers is to also eliminate the cooking and clean up you would have to do when providing your family nutritious meals. Your family will be given back the time that those tasks take and also have the benefit of a nutritious meal . 

Risks and challenges

Every company comes with risks and we are prepared for bumps in the road but have full faith we can and will overcome them.
The biggest unique challenge that will accompany Time Makers is serving the variety of taste buds that our children have.
To overcome this obstacle we are continually coming up with new recipes and fine tuning those we have to ensure nutrition while also pleasing those picky little taste buds. We also feel it is important to offer families tips that will help even the pickiest eater get the nutrition they need.
