Bridgette Skow discusses her new meal service
Bridgette Skow, co-owner, Dinner's at 6 meal service, shares what sets her apart from more commercial meal services.
Bridgette and Mike Skow are the owners of Dinner’s at 6, a service that makes and freezes dinners for delivery or pickup. It’s a big help for those of us who’ve made resolutions to gather at the table, making more time for family dinners.
Dinner’s at 6 is located at 4652 W. Houston St., Broken Arrow. For more info, visit dinnersat6.com.
We talked to Bridgette to find out more.
How does Dinner’s at 6 work? We prepare meals fresh here in our kitchen and then freeze them. Customers place an order online and then pick it up in our store. When they get home, they just have to thaw and pop it in the oven.
What made you decide to open your business? My husband and I had a new baby at home and both worked full time. We were really struggling with meal times and needed some help. We searched for a service that could help and couldn’t find anything in the area, so we decided to do it ourselves.
What’s the most popular entrée you sell? Probably any of our meatloaves. They fly off the shelves.
What sets you apart from meal services like Blue Apron or Hello Fresh? With those services, you still have to have time to prep and cook and then clean. We do all the prep for you ... not to mention there are virtually no dishes. Ours are prepared in disposable aluminum pans.
What’s your favorite comfort food? Mashed potatoes.
If you could cook dinner for anyone, who would it be? This is a tough one — probably Ree Drummond. She definitely cooks my kind of food, and she’d be so fun to hang out and chat with.
Do you play music in the kitchen while cooking? What do you listen to? Definitely. We usually have on the current pop station. That’s what my two kiddos love, and dinner prep time usually turns into a dance party.
What is your favorite Tulsa restaurant? Right now we are loving Bricktown Brewery, and we always love the Tavern.
What’s your favorite kitchen tool? At my store, it’s our commercial mixer; at home it has to be my KitchenAid.
