Our take: March 16, 2012: "Schwan's Home Service, Inc., a subsidiary of The Schwan Food Company, announced today the sale of the Impromptu Gourmet® food catalog business. The business was purchased by M&S Fine Foods, Inc., a specialty food cataloger and online retailer. M&S will continue to operate the brand using the Impromptu Gourmet name."
It's hard to say what will happen now with this brand.
“Favorite: Seafood Cannelloni; a splurge item, just for me, that I go for every once in a while.”

“Absolutely Love Impromptu Gourmet! Especially when you don't live near much in the way of "fine dining" and variety.”
“The best combination of high quality food, good prices, and unmatched variety: it's my one-stop-shop!”
One complaint about Impromptu Gourmet from SDFilm on Epinions, arose from a phone order which resulted on an order being delivered on the wrong day. Since no email confirmation is sent for phone orders there was no way to confirm the date the order was scheduled for. That's why it's recommended to place your order online.
Very disappointed in this company. I have been a loyal customer for years, along with my entire group of friends - this was our go to gift for new mothers - but when it was my turn and I received a $125 gift certificate, I got BURNED. Even though my gift certificate clearly states an expiration date that has not yet passed, they refuse to honor it. I don't think I will be a customer any longer, sad to say.
I had about 40 minutes to get a dinner on the table before I had to drive my kids to their sporting and school events. This prepared meal was far from convenient to reheat. In fact, it took an hour in the oven. The kids ended up getting pizza.
The beef was okay, but to say there was 4-6 servings is totally unrealistic. That translates to 2-3 cubes per person. The potatoes were good, as was the spinach. The whole meal was very rich. I would have liked to have been able to check the expiration dates for other reasons, but there wasn't any. At a cost of over $70, and $17 per serving, pizza was the better choice for the evening.
