The Story Behind Build A Menu ®
The idea for Build A Menu first originated in early 2010 when Karee Blunt was searching the internet trying to find a meal planning service that would work for her family. Like many busy moms, she found getting dinner prepared each day was often stressful and was hoping to find a way to make menu planning and grocery shopping a little easier. After trying a few services, she realized that the menu service she was looking for wasn’t out there and the idea behind Build A Menu was born.
Karee enlisted her sister, Lisa Holcomb, as her business partner and together the two of them began researching, planning and brainstorming all the ways they could make their menu planning site the best on the market. However, they are both stay at home, homeschooling moms and although the business idea sounded great, life was simply too busy to ever really get it started.
Fast forward to spring 2011. During one of their discussions, they talked about the idea of giving part of the proceeds to orphan care ministries and suddenly, the business took on a whole new purpose! (Between the two of their families, they have five adopted children.) They realized that Build A Menu has the potential to help a lot of orphan care ministries and since adoption is something important to both of them, the business took on a life of its own and the two of them decided it was time to finally get Build A Menu off the ground. They are thrilled to be on this adventure together and are looking forward to seeing how BAM is able to help others in life!
