Frequently Asked Questions
We ship our frozen dumplings and buns in insulated coolers with blocks of dry ice.
We ship with enough dry ice to last until the evening of your order’s scheduled delivery date. DO NOT handle the dry ice with bare hands.
We ship all propducts on Wednesday each week and choose rates for your package to arrive in 1-2 days from the date it is ordered. If an order is placed after 2pm EST it will be shipped the next day if possible or the next week.
We love our food and we want you to as well. Not everyone is waiting patiently by the front door for deliveries on the weekends. We don't want your order going out if it won't get to you in the best condition, so we try to ship orders so that packages arrive no later than Friday. If you would like to request a shipment outside of the Monday-Wednesday schedule please contact us at email@example.com and we will work to accommodate your request.
Unfortunately, as we are shipping perishable food, we cannot accept returns. If there is an issue with your shipment or product, please let us know immediately and we will work with you to remedy the problem. For any issues relating to your order, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The shipping costs go straight to the shipping company. Unfortunately, shipping frozen dumplings is not cheap since we want them to arrive to you frozen and fresh. The price you see is the average price paid to our shipping partners.
We ship everywhere within the contiguous United States (excluding Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and Alaska). Shipping charges will vary. If you live somewhere we don't ship to, please contact email@example.com and we will try our best to find a solution. No one should be without dumplings or buns if we can help it!
We only deliver to homes or offices where someone can receive these special packages.
You do not need to be home to receive the delivery. However, you will need to open your package and put it in a freezer by the evening of your delivery date. You will be receiving tracking emails leading up to the delivery, so you can plan accordingly.
Dry ice is the solid state of carbon dioxide. To become a solid, its temperature must reach -109.3 degrees F, making it an ideal cooling agent for shipping frozen and cold refrigerated products. Dry ice should never be handled with bare hands for safety reasons. Please be careful when removing your products from the packaging. Refer to the OSHA Safe Handling of Dry Ice for more information.
Dry ice is used to keep our food frozen during transit. If your food arrives frozen it is safe to store in your freezer and eat. Partially or completely thawed food may not be safe to eat. We ask you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if your food arrives not frozen.
