In addition to our normal news coverage, What Now Atlanta is tracking ways Atlanta’s businesses are adapting to the novel coronavirus and the challenges it brings to brick-and-mortars.
King of Pops Founders and brothers Steven and Nick Carse Thursday launched RainbowProvisions.com.
“In an effort to support local food, beverage, and pet supply brands, [Rainbow Provisions] delivers locally produced products to consumers’ doorsteps,” according to a press release.
The online marketplace, which offers free local delivery for orders over $35, is divided into seven essential self-isolating provisions categories: Dessert, Pantry, Wellness, Beverage, Snack, Bar, and Pet.
Local brands included in Rainbow Provisions include Honeysuckle Gelato, Doux South Pickles, Geechie Boy Mill Grits, Spicewalla, Emily G’s, Beautiful Briny Sea, Big Spoon Roasters, New Creation Sodas, Steaz, Biron Teas, King of Pups, and more.
In addition, Wonderkid, the diner-inspired collaboration between the King of Pops brothers and Big Citizen restaurant group’s Darren Carr and Eric Simpkins (Bon Ton, The Lawrence, Miracle Atlanta) is currently offering curbside and delivery.
Wonderkid will also now feature one highlighted meal per week available for order via Rainbow Provisions that will feed two people for $25 or four people for $40.
The first offering includes six large ricotta ravioli, green garlic pesto, side of roasted broccolini, and mushrooms with shallot confit.
In celebration of King of Pops turning 10 years old this week, the company is also including two complimentary popsicles in each Wonderkid meal delivery.
King of Pops is the latest Atlanta food purveyor adapting to a stay-inside City during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Grindhouse Killer Burgers Thursday launched a “Grind at Home” Burger Kit, Word of Mouth Restaurants now has a virtual market called Apple Valley Commissary, and Rumi’s Kitchen earlier this month is operating a similar venture called Rumi’s Pantry.
