Chef2Home’s Story

Our mission as Chef2Home culinarians is to create delightfully delicious chef-made meals

including medically tailored options, and deliver them from our kitchen to yours. Every restaurant-inspired meal we make is frozen fresh. Our award-winning chefs work closely with registered dietitians to ensure that each ingredient is appropriate based upon the health condition for which that meal is being made.


This combination of great taste, attention to healthy details, and frozen fresh delivery ready to enjoy directly to your kitchen is our passion.

Chef2Home uses comprehensive, proven, and innovative culinary methods that have been built and perfected over the past 30 years. At our essence, we are thousands of caring culinarians creating, preparing, and sourcing the freshest ingredients to deliver great-tasting meals.

Chef2Home’s tailored-healthy suite of menus includes Low Sodium; Heart Healthy; Renal Friendly; Diabetes Friendly; Vegetarian; Puree; as well as General Wellness options, all of which are designed by our registered dietitians and created by our chefs.

Our meals are often covered by federal or state health plans or programs (such as the Older Americans Act and State Medicaid for home and community-based services), but our affordable quality food can also be purchased directly by customers seeking delicious general wellness or health condition-specific cuisine.

Chef2Home’s state-of-the-art Sarasota Culinary Center is USDA-approved and certified to meet or exceed all government health and regulatory requirements, with the highest standards of food and operational safety integrated into everything we do.

Our turnkey culinary programs follow Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) guidelines in the flow of food preparation and delivery, and importantly our meals exceed Older Americans Act (OAA) menu standards.


Food sustainability is key for Chef2Home, which is why, in addition to integrated sustainability measures across our operations, we are proud to be included in the Hungry Harvest Partnership that is committed to a waste-free future.

We are continually training our highly experienced culinary and operations teams so they remain among the best in the business of making and delivering delicious healthy meals.


Chef2Home has a caring, positive, and people-oriented spirit, and customers know they can trust and feel at home with us.

It is everything to us that we started as a family-run company with proven, experienced management and field support teams that care about customers as if they were part of our family.

 Metz was founded in 1994 to meet the dining needs of hospitals, long-term care facilities, colleges and universities, K-12 public and private schools, and corporate clients. In 1996, we expanded into frozen, hot, and shelf-stable meals for the senior community through home delivery and congregate settings, and recently began serving Medicare Advantage and Medicaid long-term care clients.  

 Last year we provided over 15 million healthcare and senior meals to hospital inpatients, long-term care facilities, and Area Agencies on Aging, both in congregate settings and delivered to the home.

It’s simple to get fresh frozen, home-delivered meals that are ready to prepare for a delightfully delicious food experience!
