What differentiates us from our competitors?
Postcard Foods offers fresh, ready-made meals that are diverse in origin and transparent in ingredients to conscious customers so they can avoid the hassle of traditional grocery stores and the high cost of restaurants, giving them more time to explore the mountains.
What Postcard Foods represents...
Postcard Foods is the sort of outpost that draws you in with its garish, adventurous, nostalgic charm, and calls you back whenever you’re curious for something new. Maybe you’re passing through to somewhere extreme, or heading home from a long one, the takeaway from Postcard Foods makes dinnertime
Postcard Foods is a throwback to a simpler time, when friends would simply get into the car and start cruising west. It's the out there, largest twine ball in the world, roadside attraction that you ironically send a postcard home to your friends about to show what a weird place this country can be at its far ends.
What kind of vehicle would Postcard Foods be?
Postcard Foods isn't necessarily American, but it's definitely Americana. It's strong, well built, and proud of its quality. If Postcard Foods was a piece of heavy mining machinery, it would have PROUDLY FORGED IN IDAHO SPRINGS, COLORADO raised in steel letters, front and center
Postcard Foods is well constructed but each edge and corner is created artistically and thoughtfully like an Airstream trailer. It’s functional, but great pains have been taken by designers to remind you that it’s something you’ll be proud to have in your driveway.
Postcard Food is thoughtful enough to ask how your mother’s doing...
Dinner has gotten complicated. Maybe you’ve searched 17 google reviews for that one everyone liked just to find out they don’t have a table big enough for your party. Maybe you’re the only vegan on a weekend ski trip with all Paleo cross fitters. Maybe you’re just tired of eating leftovers of the boring boxed mac and cheese your kids eat every night. What separates us from our competitors is the way we value your life and that you should enjoy spending it with a delicious dinner that’s inspired and inspiring and reminds you of that trip you’ve been dying to go on once all of the kids are done with high school and your partner isn’t working so hard. Our foods value your enjoyment because we give our customers more time to enjoy the mountains by spending less time thinking about meals. We’re different from what else is out there because we encourage you to bring our traveler inspired dishes home to enjoy without the hassle of cooking and the prices of takeout.
What will we never compromise?
Transparency of our ingredients and the customer service that allows us to send every guest away with something they’ll savor.
What are the tangible components of Postcard Foods?

What is our messaging tone?
Nostalgically optimistic - We love learning and tasting flavors from all over the world. We reminisce for a time of road travel and marvel at the ease of posting a moment to social media. Even if we don’t quite understand how it works, we love the idea of connecting through sharing of adventure stories and photos.
Approachable - Maybe we’re offering something you’ve never heard of before, but you know we have a willingness hear questions and an enthusiasm to educate our customers. We want to hear where you’re from, where you’ve been, where you’d like to go, and what delicious food you’ve had found along the way.
Maternal - Postcard Foods asks how things have been with the family. They're familiar and caring, they remember your name, and they want to make sure you're fed before heading out for the day
