Gourmet Delivery



Alan Clifford was the third employee at LivingSocial. He knows not just online sales, but what people are hankering for. He knows that modern people need options. “If I come home tired, I’m just as likely to eat popcorn, or cheese and crackers. Or three glasses of wine and no food at all,” he admits. The 30-year-old Ohio native started his business, Galley Foods, in D.C. last January, and launched in Baltimore’s Canton and Federal Hill neighborhoods in September. The service takes ordering in food up a notch by bringing healthy, heat-and-serve entrées to your door within 30 minutes. At a price of $12 to $14 per plate, the meals are prepared by trained chefs in a commercial kitchen and packed up for same-day delivery. Three choices—beef or pork, chicken or fish and vegetarian—are offered each day (at 600-800 calories per serving). Clifford is looking to expand into other Baltimore neighborhoods once he can establish demand. I’m ready to order up. “It’s easier than spending an hour or two chopping and washing dishes,” as Clifford says. “And it’s better than ordering crappy takeout.” Or drinking three glasses of wine.
