The Flying Pan is a food delivery business based in Cape Town that was launched in March 2013 in response to a growing need for a healthy and convenient dinner service. Busy lives make meal planning, shopping and cooking difficult to do, and it’s often expensive to cook for one or two persons, not to mention the high volumes of food wastage. We set out to offer a complete dinner time solution, by creating healthy and delicious home-style dishes and delivering them straight to people’s homes or offices. Simply put, our service provides all the benefits of home cooking, without the fuss. Our tagline ‘Rethink Dinner’ encourages people to break the habit of shopping, chopping, cooking and cleaning, and to consider dinner alternatives that work with modern, busy lifestyles.
Healthy Food Delivery
What sets us apart is our absolute dedication to delicious food and convenience. Food is prepared fresh using only high quality ingredients. All of our meals are chef made, and the owner and qualified Head Chef Mathew Hoepner is directly involved in the menu creation and cooking, resulting in exceptionally tasty food. We cater for different lifestyles with our three menus. Our classic menu consists of dinner time favourites from a range of cuisines, and features curries, pastas, Thai dishes, local South African favourites and more. Our low carb menu consists of meals that follow banting guidelines, and suit people who are trying to limit their carb intake. Our vegetarian menu offers a delicious variety of plant based foods, featuring stuffed mushrooms, stuffed peppers, and nutritious Thai and Indian curries made with chickpeas, lentils, tofu, red kidney beans and more. Menus are rotated, meaning that customers won’t receive the same meal in a 8 week period. Prices range from R72 – R80 for large portions with free delivery to our service areas.
Not only do we focus on serving great food, but also on making the service as simple and convenient as possible. As such, we have embraced a simple-to-use online ordering system. Customers order food online and make use of multiple online payment method. We also give customers total flexibility in meals ordered which means there are no minimum orders or subscriptions. Customers simply have to get their orders in by Thursday 2pm for the following week’s deliveries.
Corporate and Wedding Catering
The Flying Pan also offers a highly personalised catering service, with a focus on delivering a unique food experience to customers that leaves a lasting impression. Customer requirements and food briefs are carefully considered when creating menus, and this includes paying close attention to the desired ambiance or theme of the event, presentation, and dietary requirements.
