The Story Behind Build A Menu ®

Here is the story from the founders of Build a Menu! 

The idea for Build A Menu first originated in early 2010 when Karee Blunt was searching the internet trying to find a meal planning service that would work for her family. Like many busy moms, she found getting dinner prepared each day was often stressful and was hoping to find a way to make menu planning and grocery shopping a little easier. After trying a few services, she realized that the menu service she was looking for wasn’t out there and the idea behind Build A Menu was born.

Karee enlisted her sister, Lisa Holcomb, as her business partner and together the two of them began researching, planning and brainstorming all the ways they could make their menu planning site the best on the market. Lisa Holcomb and Karee Blunt Owners 2010-2018


Fall 2018-2020, Build a Menu owners were Jason & Jami Balmet. Jami has been a long time fan of Build a Menu and has always loved all of the features and functions that allowed her to meal plan very easily with a busy household. They were excited to take this beautiful website and concept and bring some fresh new ideas to making meal planning easy (and affordable) for busy families.

We have been subscribers of Build A Menu for over 5 years and in that time, we cannot imagine our lives without using this amazingly helpful site.  It saves all the menus we have ever created, allowing us to access them quickly and use them over and over.  This lessens our time in planning for every event (seasonal or medical), trip, or just on a weekly basis.  When we reached out to help the previous owners, we eventually offered to purchase the site to save it from being deleted from our lives forever.  We are so excited about this incredibly new venture in our lives.
