This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.

From newlyweds to empty nesters and bachelors, people throughout the valley are signing up for sessions at My Girlfriend's Kitchen. In fact, the business has been so successful that Marcia Hales and Jen Jackenthal have started franchising it, and you may soon see My Girlfriend's Kitchens opening all over the country. Dinner has never been so easy!

Thanks to these two innovative women, you can now sit back and relax while your already-prepared dinner is cooking. Marcia has always loved cooking, and Jen has always dreaded it. Both had children attending the same playgroup in Park City, and when the pair met nearly two years ago, they immediately began formulating a business plan to help other busy parents just like them. Marcia and Jen describe My Girlfriend's Kitchen as the best idea since the invention of the wife and say it's bound to solve today's solution to the age-old dinner challenge.

My Girlfriend's Kitchen originally started in Jen's kitchen, and word about the business quickly spread, eventually outgrowing her kitchen. Headquartered in Salt Lake City, My Girlfriend's Kitchen not only lets you make delicious and nutritious meals for your family, it lets you save time and money. In less than two hours, you can make 12 family-sized dinners. That's nearly 40 pounds of food! From menu items like "There She Is, Miss Peruvian Chicken," "Satay on the Setee" and "Overnight Sensation Cherry Citrus Pork," you're sure to find something the whole family will enjoy.

Marcia and Jen know most people don't have time to prepare healthy meals, so they've done it all for you. Before arriving at My Girlfriend's Kitchen, all the ingredients have been bought, prepared and arranged according to each recipe. Aside from assembling the meal, you don't have to do anything! All the recipes are original, and have been tested for quality and taste.

For Zions Bank, I'm Fred Ball. I'm speaking on business.
