Everytable Brings the Fight for Food Justice to OC

February 04, 2022

Everytable, a mission-driven food company that fights for food justice by making nutritious, fresh, and delicious food accessible and affordable for all, just opened its newest grab & go stores in Orange County.

Both new Everytable stores are in Santa Ana on Bristol Street and Harbor Boulevard. 

On track to more than triple its footprint in Southern California in 2022, Everytable launched in 2016 as a revolutionary grab & go concept with made-from-scratch meals priced according to what a specific neighborhood can afford. 

Today the company is a multi-channel food business fueled by a central kitchen that supplies stores in Los Angeles County and beyond, and a fast-growing subscription service that delivers the same individually packaged, chef-prepared meals to 12 million households throughout Southern California. 

Everytable recently expanded its store footprint into the San Fernando Valley and is slated to open stores in San Diego later this Spring, with openings in the Inland Empire planned for later in the year.

 The Santa Ana store on Harbor Blvd. is operated by Alex Aguilar, one of the first graduates of Everytable’s pioneering Social Equity Franchise program. Aguilar is enrolled in Everytable University which was created in 2021 to empower and train entrepreneurs from marginalized communities to own and operate Everytable franchises with zero-dollar investment required. Everytable is actively seeking team members to join in their mission at stores throughout Southern California and accepting applications at https://everytable.careerplug.com/account.

“Everytable is on a mission to become the McDonald’s of fresh, nutritious, and affordable fast food,” said Sam Polk, CEO, Everytable. “We hope to serve the Santa Ana community by providing a new type of dining experience for guests on the go and looking for a meal that is as healthy and cravable as it is affordable and convenient.”

Everytable’s menu includes a variety of permanent and seasonal offerings for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with prices ranging from $6.00 to $9.00. Among dozens of creative menu items, some of its most popular menu items include Trap Kitchen Curry Chicken, Homegirl Salmon Adobo and a new Smoky Spanish Rice & Shrimp dish with turmeric sourced from women-founded Diaspora Co. Everytable also offers several wraps, delicious snacks, and desserts, and an assortment of beverages including tea, smoothies, juices, Kombucha, and more. 

When guests enter Everytable, they can easily choose freshly packaged, ready-to-eat meals from open-air refrigerators. Meals can also be warmed and enjoyed in Everytable’s inviting, comfortable and minimalist dining area, or guests can pick them up if they are on the go.  

For convenience, guests can choose to subscribe to Everytable’s affordable and customizable meal plan choosing from 30+ fresh, chef-prepared meals. Guests have the option to pick up those meals at the store or have those meals delivered right to their homes.

The company also operates SmartFridge vending machines and offers Food Service for a variety of organizations from corporate offices to senior living centers to apartment buildings. 

Everytable also offers a Pay It Forward program where guests can join the fight for food justice in their neighborhoods by simply purchasing a meal (or multiple meals) then post a happy or inspiring note on the Pay It Forward wall found in each store. Anyone who can’t afford to pay for a meal, simply presents one of these notes at checkout. 

Guests and others can also purchase Pay It Forward meals online at www.Everytable.com.

Open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

100 N. Harbor Blvd Ste. C3 in Santa Ana.

1702 Bristol St. in Santa Ana.
