Delivery Times

How long should my order take to be delivered?

Total time to arrive = Dispatch time + Transit time
  • Dispatch time:
    • How long before it leaves Yuppiechef's warehouse
    • Dispatch times are based on stock status
  • Transit time:
    • How long it'll take to get to you once we hand it over to our courier partners
    • Transit times vary depending on where you live in South Africa

*Dispatch and Transit times are based on working days

Stock status and dispatch times:

  "In stock, can dispatch immediately" — Leaves Yuppiechef HQ within 2 working days. If you order before 14:00, it usually leaves our warehouse the same day.

  • Any area outside of a 50km radius from a main centre is considered an outlying/regional area
