Dinner In a Pinch
Dinner In A Pinch in Cranford, NJ! File this idea under “I wish I’d thought of that first!” We’ve all been there. Driving home from work, realizing you’ve planned nothing for dinner, defrosted nothing, have no energy or inclination to cook, and are tired of the same-old, same-old fall-backs of pizza and Chinese food. That moment when you just wish there was someone who’d be willing to cook dinner for you and your family tonight. Now, there is!!! Enter the stage . . . . Dinner-In-A-Pinch!
Sara Shaunnessey, the owner, had many moments just like those when she was a commuter . . . too tired and without enough free time to cook every day. Thus the idea and the business was born at the end of last year, touting the motto, “Let us make your life easier…and more delicious.” And customers have been doing just that ever since!
