BOX'D CHEF Delicious Take-Home Meal Kits Launch at Cura

The Cura team at Jefferson Hospital

BOX'D CHEF, a delicious take-home meal kit program, is driving new business at Jefferson Hospital (Jefferson Hills, PA); St. Clair Hospital (Pittsburgh, PA); and Sherwood Oaks (Cranberry Township, PA).  

These locations were selected to be the first facilities in the United States to offer BOX'D CHEF during the test pilot program on September 26th, 27th and 28th.  Across the three pilot units, 61 meal kits were sold, which equates to $915 in sales during the roll-out days! 

Our clients see BOX’D CHEF as added value that we bring to their staff, guests and residents.

BOX’D CHEF was developed by Elior UK, a part of Elior Group, Cura’s global parent company, and has debuted with enormous success.
