Everything You Need to Know About Shipping Zingerman’s Products to Your Doorstep
One of the most frequently asked questions (or hopeful pleas if we’re being honest) we get from out-of-towners at the Deli is whether or not we can ship their favorite Zingerman’s goodies to their doorstep. First off, we couldn’t be more honored. We’re always thrilled when someone loves something so much they want to share it with a loved one or enjoy something themself from afar. Second, here at Zingerman’s Deli, we solely offer pickup or local delivery. For everything else, there’s Zingerman’s Mail Order, our partner business that’s all about, you guessed it, mail order!
Introducing Zingerman’s Mail Order
Zingerman’s Mail Order is the country-wide online retailer of Zingerman’s food, gifts, and more. They travel the country and the world searching for the best in food just like we do. They have an unrivaled selection of food gift baskets, varietal coffee, estate-bottled olive oils, exquisite chocolates and confections, and so much more, and they’ve been shipping across the country for nearly three decades.
How to Get Zingerman’s Products Shipped
Shop online at Zingerman’s Mail Order anytime day or night (we recommend on your couch in jammies, but you do you). If you’d like personalized assistance, whether help choosing a gift or simply narrowing down which olive oil to choose, you can reach a real person at Mail Order via the phone (888.636.8162) or email ([email protected]).
Like Zingerman’s Deli, Zingerman’s Mail Order is a part of the Zingerman’s Community of Businesses (ZCoB). (Zingy Historical Trivia: The idea for the ZCoB was laid out in Zingerman’s 2009 vision, written by Zingerman’s Deli founders Paul Saginaw and Ari Weinzweig. They envisioned a novel strategy for business growth with a family of businesses all located within the Ann Arbor area that are independently owned, but work together!)
At both the Deli and Mail Order, you’ll find cheeses and gelato from Zingerman’s Creamery, breads and pastries from Zingerman’s Bakehouse, confections from Zingerman’s Candy Manufactory, and coffee from Zingerman’s Coffee Company. If you’re hoping to ship any of these items, Mail Order’s website makes it really easy to find all of these Zingerman’s-made items, just check out their “Made By Us” category, which also includes a meal kit to make Zingerman’s Roadhouse Mac & Cheese and Reuben sandwich kits from your favorite Deli.
So, getting back to the original question, YES, you can ship an awful lot of Zingerman’s goodies to anyone in the United States! You won’t find every single thing that’s available at the Deli on Mail Order’s site, but if you’re jonesing for an item that doesn’t appear on their site, it’s absolutely worth asking about. Give the friendly team at Mail Order a call (888.636.8162) to see what’s possible.
