According to Statista, 184.83 million people watched their diet in 2020, with many choosing to follow a certain diet plan or restrict various food groups.
Since it’s often hard to follow a diet diligently, meal planning and recipes are searched for by millions each month. A company that offers thousands of recipes and meal plans has now changed its name.
In 2020, Elliot Silver reported that Meal.com was acquired for $1 million by a Dutch entrepreneur building a meal planning and recipe website. Originally named MealPlanner.com, the company quickly rebranded to Meal.com to take advantage of the premium name.
Now, though, the company looks like it has rebranded again.
As of writing, typing in Meal.com redirects you to Guac.com. It’s the Meal.com website, rebranded to Guac.
Whois history tells us that Guac.com was likely acquired by the company in January 2022 from previous owners Get On The Web Ltd., a British company that owns thousands of short, premium domains.
The motivation for the rebrand is unclear. I contacted the company’s founder, but received no response. Perhaps the company will be looking to sell its prized asset, Meal.com, switching to a cheaper name instead.
