The Story Behind Build A Menu ®

Here is the story from the founders of 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.

In the Fall of 2018, Build a Menu found a new and happy home with it's new owners: Jason & Jami Balmet. Jami has been a long time fan of Build a Menu and has always loved all of the features and functions that allowed her to meal plan very easily with a busy household. They are excited to take this beautiful website and concept and bring some fresh new ideas to making meal planning easy (and affordable) for busy families. 

Jason and Jami have 5 kids and run their own business from home. They know what it means to be too busy to meal plan and Jami has a passion for feeding her family well on a budget! They have two sets of twin boys and a baby girl.
