Eagle Express, Holiday Food Deliveries

Ah, the holiday season! A time for cheer and food; sweet memories with family and food; remembering the Reason for the Season…and food. Did we mention there’s food involved?


As with all American holidays, the end of year festivities have important traditional foods that bind our families together. Whether you’re in the food distribution business, a local producer, or just a culinary participant, holiday food deliveries are a vital part of enjoying Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years with your loved ones.


Want to learn a little more about this step in the supply chain? Our Eagle Express holiday couriers will drop some knowledge for you.


Food deliveries can be scheduled in advance or on an urgent basis.

Scheduling holiday food deliveries is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Keeping your customers on a daily, weekly, or biweekly schedule means your customers never run out of your product, and you have to do minimal preparation and virtually no upkeep. Sounds like a Christmas miracle, we know. Scheduling in advance also saves you cash. Your mental state and your bottom line will thank you for getting those holiday deliveries on the books sooner than later.


Of course, there are urgent food delivery needs that require the use of an on demand courier. That’s ok. We have you covered. Our 24/7/365 couriers are here on holidays and weekends to tackle your urgent holiday food deliveries. Whether you’re an avid planner or a last minute kind of a guy or gal, you can rest assured that your deliveries will arrive on time and in perfect eating condition.


You have standards, we have standards, and the government has standards.

Here at Eagle Express, we set stringent standards for success. In everything from vetting drivers to vehicle maintenance, our standards are high. This ensures we offer our customers quality service every time. As our customer, you likely have your own set of standards. From white glove services to delivery instructions, we discuss these preferences beforehand to ensure you get what you need from our delivery service. We can’t forget, though, that when it comes to food delivery, the government has standards, as well. The Food Safety Modernization Act regulates how we handle food, from farm to table. Their goal is to promote food safety and reduce the spread of illness.


It might seem impossible to consider all those standards in one delivery, but our team at Eagle ensures it happens each and every time.


Temperature control is almost always necessary.

A refrigerated van in the dead of winter might seem redundant, but we assure you, it isn’t. Especially for holiday food deliveries. Picture this: you wait until the day before Thanksgiving to purchase your bird. But, when you arrive, the shipment of fresh turkeys were inadvertently frozen from being transported from up North to down South in the frigid weather. No (turkey) soup for you!


Temperature control keeps your items in just the right atmosphere for the duration of their journey. Specific temperature control is only available with a courier that offers temperature controlled vans or straight trucks. This might seem a little picky, considering your cranberries probably can make it from Oregon to DFW without becoming jelly, but we want your foods to arrive fresh and to your standards for delicious consumption. Only with temperature control can we guarantee that.


To everywhere, from anywhere.

Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house your holiday food deliveries will go! If Grandma lives within the Metroplex, she can be serviced with a super rush 45 minute delivery. If she lives across the country, we have critical distance deliveries for that.


A great courier can take your holiday food deliveries from anywhere to everywhere and all the places in between.


As you prepare your hearty family meals this holiday season, you don’t want to have to worry about the logistics behind your food. That’s what Eagle Express is for. Whether you’re in the market for commercial or residential holiday food deliveries, Eagle Express is here to help.


Any time of day or night, you can call us at 214-351-5777. We look forward to assisting you in making your holidays magical!
