Homegrown culinary concept to deliver kid-friendly meals to doorsteps in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County
Serving made-from-scratch, Chef-prepared meals since opening in July 2020, MK Takeaways (MKT) is the family-owned, ghost kitchen concept offering chilled, never-frozen dishes delivered to your home. Owned/operated by husband and wife duo, Michael and Karen Stanley, the Broward-based business serves South Florida’s Tri-County area every week, Monday through Friday. With school back in session, MKT has launched an extensive kid’s menu, “Takeaways for Tots and Teens” to eliminate mealtime stress for parents during these unprecedented times.
Conceptualizing this new, kid-forward menu was no sweat for the Stanley duo—the couple already own and operate Yummy in My Tummy (YIMT); a successful, Organic and Natural School Lunch Program in business since 2008. Before schools closed in March 2020, YIMT provided 4,000 meals a day across 90 schools in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. YIMT has received rave reviews and accolades for providing Organic and Natural Meals as vendors of both the National School Lunch Program and the Adult Care Food Program as well as to private schools throughout the Tri-County area.
With each plate priced at $7, the “Takeaways for Tots to Teens” menu is perfect for no-fuss lunches and dinners during virtual school sessions. Meals arrive fully cooked and refrigerated to preserve freshness and include heating instructions. Busy parents looking to stock up for the school week can order five meals for $30 with MKT’s “Youth 5 Meal Deal.” Meals are made-to-order with the highest quality mix of conventional, all-natural, and organic ingredients.
Menu highlights include Lean Beef Burger with hand cut cottage fries (.50 extra for cheese); Homemade Chicken Tenders served with a choice of Yummy Mac-N-Cheese or hand cut cottage fries; Grilled Steak with rice pilaf and broccolini; Chicken and Cheese Quesadillas with rice and beans; Arroz con Pollo with plantains and Lean Beef Meatballs with pasta. Vegetarian options include Veggie Crumble Meatballs served with pasta; and Handmade Cheese Ravioli with tomato sauce.
