Articles Business 05-18-15

New York-based startup Blue Apron, a fresh ingredient and recipe delivery service, is opening a new fulfillment center in The American Dream City as a way of reaching even more customers.

According to Blue Apron, the company plans to hire around 250 full-time employees with the launch of the new Arlington facility, which should start shipping products to customers June 1.

Blue Apron is a company that puts together various meals each week, and sends the perfect portions of each ingredient to users for their own cooking and learning pleasure.

Blue Apron makes home cooking accessible by delivering original recipes and fresh ingredients to home chefs nationwide. By reinventing the grocery supply chain from the farm to the dinner table, Blue Apron sources seasonal ingredients that the company believes are fresher and more affordable than customers can get on their own at their local supermarket.

Blue Apron also has fulfillment centers in Jersey City, New Jersey and Richmond, California and currently delivers more than two million meals per month to customers across the country.
