About Us

The Ready Store, like most American dreams, started with a great idea and continued to grow with hard work and ingenuity.

From our modest beginnings in a basement, Ready Store has grown into the world leader for emergency preparedness and food storage. We have strived from the beginning to bring you quality products at the lowest prices possible. We've tried to be as transparent as possible, helping you make the best decisions possible for you and your family.

2002

Being prepared has always been a priority for Jeff and Amy Davis, founders of Ready Store. They prepared with food storage and 72-hour kits as a family and wanted to offer that same assurance to others.

The Davises started selling their own family's emergency kits online. The demand was so high that they started buying more of the same supplies that they had used for their family's kits and assembling emergency bags inm the basement of their home to sell.

2003

The business quickly grew and Jeff and Amy began offering new products like Military MRE Meals. They hired a few friends and family members to help with putting the kits together.

2004

The family's basement soon wasn't big enough. The company moved into a new 1,200 square warehouse in Provo, Utah, to accommodate for the quick growth.

2005

The Ready Store began a partnership with Mountain House freeze dried food. We began by offering pouched meals for 72-hour kits and cans of long-term food storage. Ready Store has since grown into one of the nation's largest Mountain House distributors, building a lasting and trusting relationship with the company.

2005

We moved locations from Provo, Utah, to nearby Bluffdale, Utah. The new facility offered 3,500 square feet of storage and a state-of-the-art production facility.

2005

We printed our first catalog! Since we started the Ready Store catalog, we've mailed dozens of editions to millions of homes across the United States.

The Ready Store, initially a store within SaratogaTradingCompany.com, launched as an independent website.
