Overview

This company first came the attention of the Cleveland BBB in June of 2016.  At that time a Maple Heights woman reported purchasing meat and chicken from a representative who was going door-to-door in the neighborhood on Father's Day weekend.

BBB has confirmed the company failed to get required registration in Maple Heights to solicit door-to-door.  

The company’s address in Avon Lake is a UPS Store mail forwarding service and the Garfield Hts. location is the former address of  the website registrant.  

Mail to the Avon Lake address has been returned as not deliverable and with no forwarding address.  As of July 1, 2016, the physical location of the company is uncertain.

The company's contract also fails to include a three day cancellation clause as required by law.


BBB cautions consumers to be wary of door-to-door vendors selling food products.

     * Before agreeing to purchase, check the seller’s rating at bbb.org/cleveland.  If no information is available call 216-241-7678 and ask a representative to investigate further.  Also research the company online.

     * Contact the local health department to confirm the company has proper licensing and check with your local city authorities to determine if a solicitor’s permit was obtained.

     * Get literature from the business.  Does it have its physical address and phone number?  Call the number.  Are you able to speak to anyone or do you just get voice mail?  
  
     * Ask to view the meat that is on the truck.  Is the truck refrigerated?  Is the meat properly labeled?

     * Don't feel pressured into making a decision.


Note: The Ohio Department of Agriculture advises consumers to beware of any dealer who wants you to purchase bulk quantities of meat and poultry that are not properly labeled. Always ask the dealer to leave the box or labeling information if individual products are not labeled.
