Based in Austin, Texas, Grocery Pup is a specialty dog food company that started in 2017. Its food is made fresh from human-grade ingredients and can be delivered to your door or purchased in the frozen section of select specialty pet food stores in Texas and Louisiana.
Grocery pup cooks its food sous vide, which means at a low temperature. This cooking method makes sure pathogens are killed, but nutrients are retained. It is an alternative to a raw food diet.
The one-pound patties are packaged in freezer storage containers. Packages are vacuum sealed, so pet parents just need to defrost a sealed patty package in water for 20–30 minutes to feed to your dog.
Plans range from $3.20 per day or $22.50 per week for very small dogs and $11.43 per day or $80 per week for large dogs weighing up to 80 pounds. Half-portion meal delivery plans are also available, if you want to feed your dog a diet of half fresh food and half dry kibble. This helps to add vitamins and minerals to your dog’s diet.
Meal delivery plans automatically renew, but you can cancel at any time. The duration between delivery dates is determined by how much you need delivered. For example, small dogs, eating less food would get their food delivered about every three weeks and big dogs would get it every two weeks.
All recipes include at least 60 percent meat and include three flavors:

While some competing delivery companies don’t allow ordering outside of a trial subscription, Grocery Pup has the option to make one time purchases of its sous-vide cooking through its website.

You can’t purchase Grocery Pup products at just any local grocery store. They are sold via an online subscription, on jet.com for same-day delivery (New York only) or in the freezer section of local pet stores, but it looks like they are only available at a few stores in Texas and Louisiana.
Grocery Pup meals are formulated for adult dogs over six months old. They are not meant for puppies.
