We are a family-owned small business that's shaking up the date industry in the United States! ✨
Dates Delivered is the one-stop shop for a high quality selection of dates from around the world. By working with date experts in the field, we bring you the season's freshest and highest quality dates- all shipped right to your door.
So this is how it all started...
When a family friend and date grower gifted us a 4lb box of his Medjool dates from Coachella we, like many of our customers now, were blown away by the unmatched quality of farm-fresh dates. Mind you, we were not new to the date-ing game and we've had our fair share of mediocre dates from supermarkets.
But this time, after that first bite, we knew we were going for a second date.
Fast forward a few months and Ramadan rolled in during the height of the COVID pandemic. Many grocery stores were closed and access to dates in our community limited.
So we rolled up our sleeves and got to work to bridge the gap of accessibility. No one was going date-less on our watch!
The response was phenomenal! Our initial goal of hand delivering 4lb and 11lb date boxes in the Washington, DC area soon grew beyond what we envisioned. Demand for our product came from across the country! While juggling two young kids and one more on the way, we worked extra hard to meet the demand that was pouring in. We sold out of our first batch in a few days time but re-stocked and kept going.
We shipped dates to our customers in addition to their families, friends, loved ones - all isolated by the pandemic yet connected by a shared love for a sweet small palm tree fruit. Truly, it was sunshine on a rainy day (too much? ok.) ☀️
And that's how DatesDelivered.com was born!
Did you know ~14 million pounds of dates are consumed during the month of Ramadan!
Since our launch in 2020, we have expanded to now carry dates from Medina Saudi Arabia and Tunisia in addition to our best-selling California Medjool dates.
This Ramadan, we have relaunched with the goal of providing dates year-round to the Muslim community and beyond!
We thank you for your support!
