Save time, money by buying meat in bulkPosted: Updated:
Many folks are catching on to the latest trend in grocery shopping. It's an alternative to the grocery store, where you don't need to wander the aisles or even get out of the car.
Zaycon Foods offers high-quality, fresh meat in bulk that has no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients. With chicken being Zaycon's most popular item, many locals in the Phoenix-area register online to see when Zaycon is holding an event in their area, and then order their packages for pick-up. The deals can save consumers up to 50 percent.
Customers can go to the Zaycon Foods website and register for free to be able to view upcoming events in the Phoenix area.
"They go online and purchase their food. They usually purchase a month in advance," says Keith Mitchell, a driver with Zaycon Foods. "Then we set up a pick-up location and a time, and they come and drive through, and we load it for them."
Chicken is by far the most-requested item. "Chicken, bacon and beef. Those are our three main ones," he says. "And then we do steaks and roasts."
For their upcoming chicken event, Zaycon will be selling fresh boneless, skinless chicken breasts at $1.99/Lb (each unit contains 40 lbs). Customers pay wholesale prices.
