Area Manager, Everytable West Hollywood
What was the inspiration behind Everytable? When did it start and where?
Founded in 2016 in South LA, Everytable was founded by Sam Polk who believes that nutritious food is a human right and not a luxury product. Since then, we’ve opened 60 locations with the mission of making delicious, nutritious, and affordable food accessible to everyone, everywhere.
How do you describe the type of meals you offer? Ready-made? Meal prep?
Our meals are scratch-made using whole, fresh ingredients that go into prepared hot plates, salads, family meals, and more.
How are the meals packaged and prepared? Who comes up with the menu?
The meals are chef-crafted in a central kitchen and dreamt up by our incredible Chef Tim!
Why the brick and mortar store on Santa Monica Boulevard? Isn’t the rent too expensive to turn a profit?
We see West Hollywood as a community made up of creative, vibrant people that love great food, so having a presence here was a natural fit for Everytable as we aim to provide high-quality meals to all of the incredible neighborhoods across Los Angeles.
What’s your favorite meal at Everytable?
My favorite meal is the ‘Craft Bacon Burger in A Bowl,’ which has burger crumble with cheesy cream sauce and is topped with dill relish. It’s delicious!
What does the future hold for Everytable?
Our goal is for Everytable to continue expanding so that more people everywhere can benefit from having access to our healthy grab-and-go meals at an attainable price point, while continuing to invest in underserved communities and food scarce populations, as well.
How has the Chamber helped you succeed in WeHo?
The Chamber has not only welcomed us to WeHo with open arms, but has provided us with so much continued support in running our business. The Chamber sends many members, family, and friends to us here, and we couldn’t be more grateful to be included in this wonderful business community.
