“We’ve had an overwhelming response,” said Fitly founder Anthony Ortiz. “Within the firsttwo days, we were inundated with orders.”

Founded in 2011, Fitly aims to take “the headache of meal planning and grocery shopping away for good,” its website says. Users log onto the Fitly website, choose healthy recipes of interest, and are then prompted to order the necessary ingredients. Fitly has partnered exclusively with ShopRite, in which store workers will deliver the goods directly to the users’ homes.
