Fundamentally, the concept was good originally. Other actors entered the market space. Competing in this business against large commercial distributors is a volatile pursuit. Bottom line is, they can produce the products for cheaper. I love the company and the people I worked with, but logistically, cooking the meals and distributing them everyday was a LARGE source of wasted resources. This was counteracted by higher retail prices. Later in expansion of products, they begin marketing a wide array of supplements. The only problem I had here, was that we were to make claims, that regardless of what the head nutritionist/chemist at corporate told staff ... was not based in science. I read research constantly, probably 2-3 peer reviewed papers a day. In this, I know what I'm talking about. Specifically for example, there has been no conclusive evidence (at least up until 2015) showing that consumption of apple cider vinegar correlates to a lowering of ph levels in the blood stream in a normally distributed human population. Don't mean to nit pick, but I'd prefer be precise when I make claims like this.
Free lunches, Staff was chosen well at franchise locations
Pressure on sales staff led me to dread customer interactions during lower volume time frames
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Costa Mesa, CA – May 31, 2018
it was a cool place. managers were good, job had some down time but overall it was manageable work. the only problem was the heads of the company not letting anyone know abut the shut down until a day before
Positive atmosphere focused on Health and Wellness
Nutrition Coach and Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 2, 2018
I loved working for this company and had planned to do so until I graduated college in December of 2017. However, as previously stated, this company unexpectedly closed all of its locations nationwide in February 2017.

Asst. Manager/Sales/Meal Prep (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – October 2, 2017
Fun and productive. Over 3 years I was able to work indifferent cities and work in different positions for more hours. It was flexible. Customer service is needed to work here, a great level of customer service and knowledge about exercise and dieting.
Portioner (Former Employee) – Costa Mesa, CA – September 11, 2017
For working in the food industry, I enjoyed working in the food industry. I learned a lot on how to prep and make meals. The safety's of how to be clean and cautious with food I learned a lot from that place.
They went out of business so I am unable to recommend them as a liable company to apply for. While they we're in business, it wasn't a bad job by any means really. I ran the store ,I worked at, mostly by myself. I was the closer and assistant manager.
Miss the people I worked with, but the board of investors stole money from the company and customers
IT Director (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – July 4, 2017
Investors were crooks, but the people managing the business were great. Marketing extremely lacked direction from the investment board which ultimately lead to the closure and loss of jobs for over 2k employees. Investors were allowing new house accounts for customers for months when they were planning to file for bankruptcy and close the doors.
When news surfaced about the sudden closing of the MyFit Foods stores leaving hundreds without work, I wasn't surprised. They lied about the the product, practiced grossly sexist staffing methods, and subverted the creativity of the people they employed in every way. I was just a prep cook, but they way they treated the chefs and the pretty young girls they hired was unbelievable.
The first year was nice
they made every greedy move you could make after that.
