MealPal, the subscription service that makes daily lunchtime pick-up fast, fun and affordable by providing access to the best restaurants for under £4.50 per meal, has launched its service to Manchester following a successful launch in London earlier this year.

MealPal provides one lunch option a day from each of its restaurant partners that is the same quality and portion size as if you ordered in-person.

Not only is the food affordable; when compared to ordering the same dish at the normal price, users also have added convenience of skipping the queue when picking it up. From a Classic Ahi Poké Bowl at Oké Poké to Dos Tacos at Barburrito, Mancunians will now be able to get some of the city’s top food at lunch, for an unbeatable price.

The launch of in Manchester coincides with new research from MealPal that found over a third  of Mancunians currently have the same lunch at least three times a week, yet despite this loyalty, just under half  said they have more than two disappointing lunches a week.

From 12th September, MealPal is looking to help Manchester avoid disappointing lunches, skip lunch queues and discover some of the city’s best food, at an affordable price.

Members will be able to choose either a 12 meal plan (£4.79 per meal) or a 20 meal plan (£4.39 per meal) to be used over the course of a 30-day cycle.

 Nick Green, ‎General Manager UK at MealPal comments:

“We’re bringing MealPal to Manchester. We want Mancunians to ditch the soggy sandwich, leave last night’s leftovers at home and have a proper lunch – all at an affordable price.”

MealPal was founded in 2016 by Mary Biggins and Katie Ghelli and has facilitated more than 2 million lunch reservations since its launch. It is currently available in eleven cities including London and New York City, San Francisco, Toronto, Sydney and – of course – Manchester.
