Open house today at Dream Dinners
Dream Dinners in Eldersburg will hold an open house to introduce three new programs from noon to 4 p.m. today at 1532 Liberty Road.
Owner Sue Welling will add to her line of pre-assembled meals for larger families three programs for individuals, smaller families and seniors.
Welling has studied Eldersburg and Carroll County consumers to come up with the new plans.
The "Sensational Seniors" program allows those age 55 and older to pre-purchase a number of medium (three-serving) dinner credits. They can drop in on Fridays to assemble the number of dinners they want, with no reservations and no minimum orders.
Another new program that Welling is offering is dinner assembly. For those who don't have the time to get to the store to obtain food for their meals, Dream Dinners offers a meal assembly service for its customers.
The open house today will feature food samples, prizes and information booths. Guests can purchase and assemble a dinner.
