FAQWhat is A la Carte ®?

A la Carte ® is a professional, Direct-to-Home Foodservice - developed after years of research by America's most experienced shop-at-home food company, Guaranteed Foods, Inc.

A la Carte meets the demands of today's lifestyles in TWO important ways. First, we help our customers eliminate hours of food shopping time and many 'needless' eat-out meals. Maybe more importantly, we are an exclusive, home-delivered source of nutritious, ALL-NATURAL meats, poultry, seafood, fruits and vegetables.

At A la Carte ®, families of all sizes save BOTH time and money on their TOTAL food bill - without sacrificing quality or nutrition!

Does A la Carte have retail stores?

No. We do not sell to, through or from retail stores; we don't sell from the back of a truck, either. Instead, from our specialized distribution center in Kansas City, we deliver (by appointment) DIRECTLY to homes throughout our Missouri, Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska delivery area. That means that our delicious products don't lay around for days in retail display cases, or ride around for weeks on a route truck. So, our customers receive the healthiest, most nutritious and freshest products available.

What if I don't like something I get from you?

We back every food product with our exclusive Hassle-Free Guarantee ©. It's a 'no questions asked' guarantee, so you know our food HAS to be THE very best that's available.

What's different about A la Carte's meat and poultry?

Many things! First, because we deliver into several states (and ship across America), all the processing of our fresh-cut, beef, pork and poultry products is overseen and regulated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) during each step of the process. That's much different from the sporadic inspections of supermarkets by local jurisdictions.

In addition, our famous steaks are cut from government-graded USDA CHOICE or PRIME Midwestern beef that's been slowly and naturally-aged to enhance its flavor and tenderness. Unlike many retailers, we don't sell un-graded beef, then give it an expensive-sounding 'marketing' name. No, you won't find 'patio' steaks or 'charcoal' steaks or 'barbecue' steaks here. Instead, you'll enjoy the succulent flavor of genuine ALL-NATURAL beef in every bite of a generically labeled product.

Our ground beef? It's the VERY best - 100% pure, lean, GRAIN FED American beef with NO pork, poultry, water, coloring or filler added! In fact, OUR FRESH CUT, READY TO COOK beef, pork, poultry, seafood and buffalo are ALL-NATURAL! They contain NO chemical additives of any kind... NO preservatives, NO coloring, NO water, NO tenderizer, NO artificial flavoring - Nothing!

What's different about A la Carte's food packaging?

All our ready-to-cook beef, pork, poultry and seafood is individually-portion packaged in see-through, bio-degradeable Bi-vac ® packaging. This offers many benefits. It helps to preserve the quality of each delicious product. It lets you see the entire product - not just the best side. It makes it easy to use just one steak, chicken breast or pork chop at a time WITHOUT having to thaw out an entire package. It also eliminates ANY freezer burn to ensure long shelf life and great taste. And it virtually eliminates food waste from open packages that eventually get thrown away.

Do I have to join a club or purchase anything besides food?

No. That may be one of the best parts. And you don't need to purchase a freezer, membership, service-agreement, household appliance or anything else from us to enjoy A la Carte ® food and service. What's more, instead of having to pay cash in advance (or use a credit or debit card like you do at a store), at A la Carte you can use your good credit and be billed each 30 days - starting thirty days AFTER delivery.

How much does it cost?

How much a family spends with us is entirely up to them and, of course, depends to a great extent on the size of the family and the types of foods they purchase. Most customers simply switch a minor part of their existing food dollar to us (instead of continuing to spend it all at the supermarkets, restaurants and other food outlets where they previously shopped.) And, as an A la Carte ® customer they not only save the cost of gasoline spent waiting in fast food lanes or making extra shopping trips, they also avoid crowded parking lots, tiring check-out lines, picked-over selections and shopping hassles! We're a WHOLE NEW OPTION!

Will I save money?

Although our all-natural food does not cost less than buying at supermarkets and other retail food outlets, if stretching your dollars is important to you, A la Carte provides several easy ways to help you do just that. In addition to enjoying the advantages of our premium products and services, our customers can lower their total food bill in at least 3 important new ways - and do it without sacrificing quality, nutrition or their valuable time!

  1. Curtail costly 'impulse' buying! With nutritious, easy-to-fix meals at their fingertips, our customers greatly reduce their impulse buying!
  2. Spend less eating out! They quit spending needless money on 'carry-in' meals or pizza delivery because they're too tired to shop.
  3. Eliminate expensive food waste! Our portion-control packaging eliminates money wasted from 'freezer-burned' food, thrown-away leftovers or meats and seafood that have 'gone bad'.
