Send a Friend Lasagna
Lasagna. Some people call it heaven, others call it a hunk of love. Stephanie Daily, founder of Send a Friend Lasagna, calls it her heart. “Food is in my blood, it’s my passion,” Stephanie says when asked about the creation of her business. “It’s my gift to the world” and that is what it has become. Daily was a marketer, a social media manager, and oftentimes those skills integrated with the local food businesses she loved. Daily started the business as a side hustle in the summer of 2019 while working her fulltime social media manager position. When the lasagna business started to pick up she decided to go all in, focusing all of her time and attention on her young company on November 1, 2019, before the pandemic hit. When restaurants shut down and business owners had to pivot, going out for dinner became difficult and groceries were somewhat hard to find. Send a Friend Lasagna’s concept shifted into high gear, going from 0 to 60 in a matter of weeks.
Her lasagnas are made by hand out of Indy’s Kitchen by Daily herself. She creates them from her own recipes and pours her heart and soul into each dish. When asked which lasagna is her favorite, she said it is like picking a favorite child, however, her newest creation—which is full of veggies—might be her favorite to date.
Daily is embedded in the community and partners with other local artisans to create bundles for special occasions, like Valentine’s Day with Circle City Sweets and a Mother’s Day promotion soon to be announced with a local florist … just in time to give Mom a sweet-scented gift of love.
When asked about her favorite local makers, without hesitation Daily listed off Little Dumplings (Carlos Salazar’s newest creation), Chef Oya’s The Trap Seafood, Hank’s Brisket, Patties of Jamaica, Circle City Sweets and, of course, her colleagues from Indy’s Kitchen.
