Streamlining the weekly Shabbat shop is an idea whose time has come.

When 26-yr-old Aaron Schmidt noticed his mother’s weekly hectic Friday dash to buy food around Melbourne’s Caulfield, he came up with a notion for a new website.

“I figured people were buying the same 80 or so products every week and came up with an idea to make their lives easier” he said.

Clients pre-order online from Kosher Cart by Thursday and everything is delivered the next day. From challah to blintzes, cooked meals to dips, the list is representative of a typical Shabbat meal. .

For now, Schmidt is servicing Melbourne’s South-Western suburbs and the prospect of expanding to different communities is a future possibility.

Schmidt told J-Wire that in summer he could add fresh meat and fish when cooking can be completed later in the day. Other ideas include adding fresh fruit and vegetables, gifts, flowers and kosher wine.

However the business is just seven weeks old and there are plenty of ideas to be considered. His customer base grows weekly as word spreads around the community.

After studying mechatronics engineering and commerce, he now works part-time as a design engineer in the family business.

His aim was to create a website that is easy to use and offers a complete service. Even if you don’t know your kugel from your knaidlach, you can figure it out from the photographs.
