What if I need to change my order?
Vmeals ‘real people’ customer service team works hard to ensure your satisfaction with every order. They can be reached via the toll free phone number 1-800-326-1480 or via e-mail customerservice@vmeals.com for any changes or questions about your order.

Is there a minimum order?
Vmeals restaurants and caterers specify the minimum dollar value they will accept for an order. Minimum order amounts are clearly shown at the top of each menu so there are no surprises as you make your selections.

What if we have special needs or requests for our orders?
No mayo? No problem! You can add special instructions to every order and even to specific menu items within that order. You can even assign names and individual requests to your box lunch orders.

If I invite guests via email, can I see who has ordered?
Yes. Go to My Account on the Vmeals web site and click Upcoming Orders. You can then look at your outstanding orders. You will see who has and has not ordered, any invitation regrets, and you can even add to the order.

Can I cancel my order?
Yes. If you haven't applied payment to your order, go to My Account on the Vmeals web site. This will take you to Upcoming Orders. Click on the Order ID, then click the Cancel Order button.

If you have applied payment, call 1-800-326-1480 and speak to a Customer Service Representative who will assist you.

Because our restaurants and caterers have to plan ahead to fill you order, we ask that you cancel orders as follows:

  • 24 hours or more for orders that are up to $200
  • 48 hours or more for orders that are $201-$499
  • 72 hours or more for orders that are $500 or more.

Unfortunately if these guidelines aren't met you will be responsible for payment to the extent that food and transaction costs have been incurred toward the fulfillment of your order.

Everything! Vmeals features all-inclusive pricing so any tax, tip and/or delivery fees are included in the item pricing, so there are no surprises at checkout or delivery time.

Is there a delivery charge or tip?
Vmeals features all-inclusive pricing so any tax, tip and/or delivery fees are included in the item pricing for orders that meet the minimum dollar that are shown on the menus. Many restaurants and caterers will accept orders that do not meet the minimums if you agree to pay an additional delivery fee set by that provider and listed in their menu.
