I just wanted to remind all of you in the Pacific Northwest of this deal. Zaycon comes around about once every 3-4 months, so order your chicken now to fill your freezer for the fall!
Zaycon Foods, a Northwest company that sells larger quantity boxes of fresh meat and vegetables at a volume discount, is coming to the Oregon, Washington and Idaho area at the end of October delivering boneless, skinless chicken breast at $1.69 per pound!
Zaycon is coming to these Oregon & SW Washington cities this time around: Albany, Baker City, Bend, Eugene, Gresham, Hermiston, Hillsboro, La Grande McMinnville, Ontario, Oregon City, Pendleton, SE Portland, Salem, St. Helens, The Dalles, Tigard, Vancouver.
Here’s the skinny:
Chicken Breast (boneless, skinless) — (4) 10 lb bags @ $1.69/lb = $67.60
*You purchase 40 pound boxes of chicken (smaller quantities are not available — consider splitting with someone if you don’t want the full box).
Is $1.69 per pound for chicken breast a stock-up price? Absolutely. You may be able to score a deal a bit cheaper than this, but less than $1.69 per pound only happens a couple times a year (note that you may be able to find frozen chicken breasts for a comparable price, but frozen chicken has added water, so you’re actually paying more for the chicken than the listed per pound price). Many of you have commented in the past that Zaycon’s chicken is of better quality than the grocery store and you like the convenience of it, so all considering, this is a fantastic deal.
It’s important to note that you will have to “process” the chicken before you cook or freeze it. It takes about an hour for one person to rinse, split the breasts, trim the fat and put the 40 pounds of chicken in freezer containers. It does not look like Foster Farms chicken you buy at Costco straight from the box (but it does after a few seconds of work on your part ). The chicken breast is comparable to grocery store chicken — no hormones or additives but it is not organic or free range.
Ready to check it out? Just head to Zaycon, create an account and select your preferred delivery locations (I selected a number of Portland area spots since I’d be willing to drive a bit in case the closest location’s delivery date/time isn’t convenient for me) and then purchase your chicken! Your debit/credit card will be charged now, but the meat will be delivered in October (see the website for specific locations and delivery times).
For those of you who are new to Zaycon, you will go to the delivery location at the specified time, roll through the parking lot and pick up your boxes of meat. You don’t have to leave your car.
