Behind the Scenes

We use UPS for our shipping needs. 

We have noticed that some customers expect that their orders will be shipped as soon as they submit their order-Not Exactly. What actually happens is that is that the factory works from Monday to Friday producing, packing and shipping* various JikoniJoe products for our esteemed customers.  

When our factory receive your order, it will packed for shipping on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Why, well because if you order our products at midnight on Thursday, and you want it delivered on the west coast, overnight shipping is pricey to say the least. Most of our customers always look for the best deal and may choose 3 day select which is way more affordable then overnight or 2nd Day Air Shipping. Your savings could go into adding more products into your cart.

Thus, we cannot ship via 3 Day Select on Wednesday because some locations do not accept or work on Saturdays. Therefore, your perishables will be languishing in a UPS factory instead of staying cold/frozen in your refrigerator/home. Also, we may ship to you and for some reason you are not home on Thursday, in that case, UPS will attempt delivery a second time. We track each order and will notice exceptions immediately. If we were to ship on Thursday, the exception would be overnight and 2nd Day Air depending on your location and if UPS even works on Saturdays. Thus, we prefer to remain safe and only ship Monday-Wednesday.
