North Castle Partners, a private equity firm based in Greenwich, Connecticut, invested $26.7 million in KettlebellKitchen in October 2018. North Castle has worked with a slew of wellness brands, including Equinox Fitness, Curves International and Naked Juice Company.
News broke last month that the New York based meal delivery service KettlebellKitchen abruptly went out of business. The company was present in court on Tuesday, December 17 according to documents obtained through PACER, the Public Access to Court Electronic Records, where Judge Stuart M. Bernstein granted a creditor’s motion for relief, which essentially allows them to collect the remaining assets to settle any outstanding debts.
Unlike other companies, KettlebellKitchen meals only last 2 days! Ironically, one of my shipments arrived a day late as well.
I let them know about the delayed shipment and warm food, and they did give me store credit though. So far we’ve had pretty good luck with freezing and unfreezing them.

So much so my husband was asking me when more Bison Sliders and Buffalo chicken were coming. I started to notice feeling a little sick from the Pork Egg Roll (shown above in this post), but I assumed it was from the oils and seasonings put on it.
In order to get in enough healthy fat, they add in oils and dips to a lot of the recipes. Since I wasn’t used to such a fancy type meal, I figured my body was adjusting to it.
The next night we opened up Turkey Nuggets with Buffalo Cauliflower (also featured in a picture above). The reason this is relevant…the Turkey Nuggets tasted like the wood vanish smelled.
So needless to say, after the pork egg roll and now this meal, I wasn’t looking forward to Thursday’s delivery. The combination of the couple bad meals and the smell of the hot ones did me in.
They gave me a credit for the Turkey Nuggets and ruined meals. I personally think I’m done with this particular meal delivery service, but I did order Jake some Bison Sliders and Buffalo Chicken meals he loved.
I mentioned it earlier, but the shipping and packaging was horrible! The first two orders were slightly warm, but I felt safe eating them.
The box was soggy, the food stank, and the ice pack was completely melted. I mean, it’s rare to find Veto and Vegetarian options all at one delivery service.
