Factor Meals: menu and prices


As a single, childless adult who lives in a one-person household, I do a lot of cooking for one — and honestly, that can be harder than it seems. (Anyone who has tried to make a “single serving” of pasta can sympathize with my plight.) I also have a tiny kitchen with limited counter space, which can make prepping and cooking dinner a bit like pulling teeth. Luckily, meal delivery services like Factor are here to make the lives of folks like me much easier.

Since 2013, Factor has been providing gourmet, restaurant-quality meals that arrive right at your doorstep whenever you need them. The meals are fresh and fully prepared in single servings, requiring only minutes of reheating before digging in. I decided to put Factor to the test by trying the service out for a week, and here’s what I thought.

What is Factor?

Factor (formerly Factor 75) is a meal delivery service that provides a variety of fully prepared entrées, snacks, and drinks.

Meal options cater to a range of dietary needs and restrictions. You select meals from the company’s menu to create your own custom plan. All dishes are delivered fresh and individually portioned, meaning that no preparation is required — you simply reheat and enjoy.

Moreover, Factor uses high quality ingredients, including:

  • sustainably sourced seafood
  • grass-fed meat
  • antibiotic-free poultry
  • mostly organic produce

Pros and Cons


  • Rotating weekly menu of 35 chef-crafted dishes
  • Meals arrive prepared and ready to heat — no cooking skills necessary
  • Add-on items like smoothies, shakes, and desserts available
  • not mushy, even though meals are premade and microwaved


  • Single-serving meals only, so not ideal for families
  • Few plant-based menu options
  • can be expensive over time
  • unsuitable for those looking to improve cooking skills

Factor operates on a volume-based pricing system, so the more meals you order every week, the lower the cost of each one will be. For example, if you choose six meals per week, you’ll pay $13.49 per meal, for a total of $80.94. If you select the 18-meal plan, the per-meal cost drops to $10.99, for a total of $197.82. All orders have a flat-rate shipping fee of $10.99, which is added on top of the total meal cost. For example, if you’re ordering the six-meal plan, the total cost with shipping comes to $91.93.

Some meals, however, incur an upcharge of around $8 to $10 per serving. These will be marked as “Gourmet Plus” on the menu if you want to splurge.

Factor offers several plans, varying in price and number of meals. Note that the prices are rounded to the nearest dollar. The available plans are:

  • 6 meals per week: $13.50 per meal
  • 8 meals per week: $13 per meal
  • 10 meals per week: $12.50 per meal
  • 12 meals per week: $12 per meal
  • 14 meals per week: $11.50 per meal
  • 18 meals per week: $11 per meal

All prices are accurate as of June 2023.

You can purchase add-ons for an additional fee, such as:

  • soups
  • snacks
  • shakes

Shipping is available within the contiguous United States.
