She Makes Delicious is challenging everything we believe about Black women entrepreneurs and Black businesses. Traditionally, Black entrepreneurs have serviced a local, small customer base. Gross is pushing the boundaries much further and in doing so, enabling people to live healthier, fuller lives. Nina Gross has launched a meal prep service that ships to customers across the United States. That’s impressive but as a Black woman chef, it’s actually unheard of.
Gross is a personal celebrity chef to several members of the Jacksonville Jaguars and the creator of “She Makes Delicious,” a Black-owned meal kit service that provides 5-star quality food delivered to your doorstep. No matter where you live, She Makes Delicious has democratized gourmet cuisine that’s healthy, affordable and more convenient than ever. She Makes Delicious offers consumers a choice of several seasonal, locally sourced dishes prepared by well-versed chefs. Meals are carefully packed for shipment in recyclable, biodegradable materials and arrive to you fresh, never frozen. After receiving, customers need only heat-and-eat in 3 minutes or less. You can also freeze the meals up to 60 days.
There are a host of great, Black owned meal prep services for sure. Gross, however, has distinguished herself by expanding her customer base across the country. From Jacksonville to Dallas, New York City to San Francisco, delicious is available to you with free shipping!
Gross is a chef, Navy veteran and mother of 3, who began her career as a pantry chef: she was literally making salads and warming up soups in a restaurant. Nina eventually worked herself all the way up to executive chef at the United Airlines lounge at Dulles Airport in Washington, DC. During her time at United, Gross became confident that she had the ability to go into business for herself. She went into business for herself in 2015 and never looked back. Her story is an unlikely but necessary one: Black women need to see other Black women succeeding. In the culinary world, where men dominate, a Black woman is doing the unthinkable and cultivating a national customer base and doing it in excellence.
