Local mom and nurse Wendy Neel started Wendy’s Kitchen as a place for busy families to grab a home-cooked meal on busy nights. At Wendy’s Kitchen they prepare fresh, made-from-scratch meals for families to take home and put in the oven for dinner. 

“When I went back to working as a nurse, I was trying to figure out a way to balance working and creating fresh, quick meals for my family,” Neel said. “That’s where the idea for Wendy’s Kitchen came about. We make home cooked meals that are easy to pop in the oven and serve.” 

The menu changes every week to include new items which are posted on their website each Friday. Some options include chicken spaghetti, poppy seed chicken with rice, pulled pork sandwiches, Swedish meatballs over egg noodles and many more. The menu also includes many sides, desserts and soups. 

Wendy’s Kitchen suggests that you order at least a day in advance, but there are almost always coolers in the front full of cold meals to pick up and take home. Everything on the menu is pre-cooked and ready to eat, each with a sticker with instructions on how to heat them up. 

Costs of menu items and meal sizes vary, but Wendy’s does offer a local discount. The discount is for take-out meals - $5 off a large meal (4-6 people) and $3 off a small meal (2-3 people). 

Lunch is served daily at Wendy’s Kitchen with a slightly different menu to include sandwiches, soups and chicken or broccoli salad by the pound.  

How it works: Order a meal from the daily special menu, which is posted on the home page of the Wendy’s Kitchen website. The meal will be prepared for pick-up and will be ready to warm up for your family dinner. The meals come in oven-safe, disposable containers which make cleaning up very easy. 

You can email your order to or you can call 850-837-8837 with your order. You can also text your order to 501-952-4610.

Cool Factor: Fresh, home-cooked meals to go, fast, convenient and yummy
