SC Real Foods carries many similar items to other stores and restaurants. While the food may look the same, it's not. We take extra time, effort and expense to make sure that the food we prepare for you is nutritious and delicious.
We spend extra money on ingredients like organic olive oil and Real Salt (brand) that we don't have to because your health matters to us.
We spend time and ingredients developing new recipes and techniques to make our wholesome homemade food function in a retail environment. We don't launch a bakery or deli product until it tastes amazing.
Additionally, we're so blessed to have the Victors Restaurant chefs and staff who prepare your Real & Ready meals. We meet with them weekly to discuss the menu, ingredients & techniques. Their talent, expertise, creativity and dedication to the Real Food cause are pushing forward the boundaries of ready made food.
All that sets SC Real Foods apart from all other stores, delis and restaurants.
Thanks for letting us serve you and thanks for supporting us. We just absolutely love you, our customer, and want to bless you with yumminess & health.
