A Dream Dinners store is opening at 18039 Garland Groh Blvd. in the Shoppes at Hagerstown.

A grand opening will be Thursday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Dream Dinners is an innovative concept in meal assembly that eliminates the stress of daily menu planning, grocery shopping, prep work and cleanup by moving the process out of home kitchens into specially equipped retail outlets.


Consumers can preview a monthly menu at and select items from a menu featuring up to 17 choices. They then register to attend a meal assembly session at a local Dream Dinners retail location.
