FAQ

What is Prep Kings?

Prep Kings is a health-focused meal service, providing freshly prepared meals for order on a weekly basis. Launched in 2017 by Bob Fox and Brady Burrows, both Des Moines natives and Certified Personal Trainers, Prep Kings cooks all meals locally, working out of The Mickle Center Shared Use Commercial Kitchen.

How does the menu work?

A small, rotating menu is released each week.  Generally, there are two breakfast options and five lunch/dinner options.  The new menu, for the following week, is available every Tuesday.

How do I order?

Orders may be placed directly through our website, by choosing Order Now.  Select the meal options you would like, indicate regular or large and how many of each.  You may then checkout through your Cart. All payments are collected prior to the preparation of meals. Regular-size meals, with 4 oz. of protein, are $7.00+tax and large meals, with 6 oz. of protein, are $9.00+tax.

How do I get my meals?

Prep Kings currently partners with Genesis Health Clubs, offering meal pick-up at the Hickman, Merle Hay, SE 14th and West Glen* locations. You do not have to be an Genesis club member to pick up meals at their locations, just specify a pick-up location when placing your order.

All meals are available for pickup after 5 p.m. on Mondays. See gym details for closing times.**

*West Glen pickup location is for Genesis Health Club members only due to 24 hour keycard required access.

Prep Kings also partners with Priority Crossfit in Altoona, offering meal pick-up at that location on Monday, from 5pm-7pm.

**In ordinance with food safety rules, all orders must be picked up on the same day they are prepared. Any meals left at the end of the night on Monday will be discarded without refund.

Does Prep Kings create customized meals based on preferences or dietary restrictions?

No. Currently, all meals are prepared as described on the menu. As Prep Kings continues to grow, we may be able to offer customized meals in the future.
